Always, always do your best
Iremember very well hearing someone in a work situation who was not getting ahead as he would have liked to – actually he was quite dissatisfied with his employers saying the following, “I’m not going to knock myself out for these people [referring of course to his employers]; they don’t pay me enough.” When I heard that comment I thought to myself, that that person will not get too far in life. Yes, indeed with that kind of attitude, believe me he’ll always be a failure, that’s for sure. My friend, I want you to take the good advice given in the title of today’s article very seriously and thus, irrespective of the actual circumstances, always, always do your best. Now I can just imagine some extremely negative people, saying with a rather annoyed look on their face, “Why should I put any effort into my work for these people, they don’t treat me very well and don’t pay me enough money for the job I do?”
Well, if you’re a regular reader of these articles, you will be more than aware of the fact, that I highlight the law of cause and effect quite often for those who want to get ahead in life, across the board. Now the universal law of cause and effect which the great Ralph Waldo Emerson referred to as the law of laws states as follows “for every cause there is an effect, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” As the good book puts it, “as we sow, so shall we reap.” So, in a nutshell, if you want to get favorable results from your work, whatever it may be, you need to give your employers and their customers exceptional service irrespective of how they treat you – yes, you do.
My friend, today’s message is indeed a very important one – always, always do your best, regardless of how others are treating you. I guarantee, that if you continue to do this, irrespective of how they are treating you, eventually you will get your just rewards, not incidentally because I said so, but because that’s what the universal law of cause and effect states – as you sow, so shall you reap … eventually.
