DO A LITTLE MORE THAN IS EXPECTED
The story below is taken from notes I took while listening to the 'Godfather' of the mental game, Dr. Rob Gilbert. Dr. Gilbert is a professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey. He also records the daily 'Success Hotline' and has been since 1992!
"My best student, Melissa Sapio, graduated with a perfect 4.0. She was the only one ever made it through with a perfect GPA, 36 classes and 36 A's. She is now a doctor. I invited her to come speak to my class and asked her, 'what was your strategy to get an A in every class?
Her response, "I sat in the front, I introduced myself to my professors, I took great notes, I asked for help, I never pulled all-nighters but most importantly, I decided no matter what my professors asked me to do I WOULD DO MORE THAN EXPECTED.
For example, If the assignment was to do problems 1, 3 and 5 she would do 1-5. She didn't do a ton more, but a little more on a constant and continual basis. She didn't study 24-hours a day, but found ways to do more".
This will instantly improve your grades and athletic performance. "More than expected" is the magic formula. If you can do this starting right now your life will change 100% for the better.
Excellence is not expected effort, excellence is EXTRA effort. If you only do what is expected you will be average.
