Always do more than you get paid for

A Seminar in a sentence: Always do more than you get paid for - to make an investment in your future." I've been taught you work for yourself, not whomever your employer may be. Your reputation is what follows you to the next level, to the next job, so go the extra mile: to make a difference, to make a change, to make an impression.

When Jim spoke about the Two Important Questions he had asked a waitress in a coffee shop,

1) Are you looking out for the opportunity every week? and

2) Are you willing to spend some time every week looking out for that opportunity? These Two Questions Are Worth Millions For Every Individual, and I am thankful to Jim specially for that.

"The truth is revealing and inspiring."

Many times, the truth has to be revealed to us before it can inspire us. We have to recognize the truth in ourselves and make the necessary corrections and adjustments before we can inspire anyone else. Interestingly enough, it seems that is the very thing that we inspire others with--recognizing the truth in our own hearts and then taking the steps to change.
