My Car is well-known for its maintenance, Even though I love my ‘horse’ from the very depth of my heart I often forget to care.Even in our life we involuntarily neglect the ones who care us the most.
I heard about a car service center from one of our colleagues, he was talking like a brand ambassador of them in spite of being only a regular customer.I was wondering that why he could suggest them while there are a lot of guys doing the same business in the city.Since I had no other option than going for a car wash because my family is coming from the home country the other day, I headed to the service center.
By the time I reached there I was in the queue behind other few cars & without much delay, my car was taken to ‘saloon’.
The guy who was washing my car spent a quite amount of time ‘beautifying’ my ‘stallion’ & I really loved him & his craft as he was doing his job exceptionally well.
Out of nowhere a saying of Great Martin Luther King came to my mind…
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street-sweeper who did his job well.”
He went that extra mile just for an ordinary customer like me & that made him ‘EXTRAORDINARY’
But he had many other options…
- He could have just done his job for what he is paid for!
- Who cares if he is not putting an extra effort?
- There was not even a supervisor of him watching while he does his job!
The way he astonished helped me to realize a big known secret
“Going extra mile turns everything & everyone extraordinary “
- How many of us are ready to go that extra mile to our work, relationships or social life?
- Even after being aware that going the extra mile is the key to excellence, what is holding us back?
- Have you ever thought of the magical influence of going extra mile throughout your life?
In our ‘Journey of Life’ keys to success is available in front of our eyes, the only effort we have to do is to open our heart to the happenings around us and seek the lessons to pace our journey.
The secret to excellence is always ‘going that extra mile’.
Let’s go for it…Hope You Are Enjoying Our Journey…
All the best!
With lots of Love
