“Can you do your homework?” I ask my pupil. “Come on mister… you know I don’t like homework.” Over the years I have heard something similar to this too many times. In actuality, I think now I’m running into this response more than I did only a short decade ago. I have to admit that this lack of effort is worrying me a bit. But… all is not lost… there is still hope… We can still win.
But first, check out this insight: If a lot of people are hesitant to do their own homework, or go the extra mile, especially when things get tough, consider what that means for the rest of us who do our own homework and going the extra mile in all that we do. Going the extra mile, or doing our own assignments, automatically puts us, hard workers, ahead of most people because we’ve already developed the habit of doing more, or doing extra. We are more responsible. Don’t worry. Turning the word accountable around just means that we are able to respond. And is not that what we really want in this life; to be able to respond?
You see, where most people stop, is normally the same stage where responsible winners are only getting warmed up and prepared to start for real. So, if you are one those winners who keep going… CONGRATULATIONS! Just keep doing what you are already doing… and if you’re a person who is frustrated because you have not seen positive results yet, don’t worry. Rome was not built in one day, and neither will your colossal dream life be built in one day. However, over time it’ll be constructed as long as you keep your habit of doing extra. And that doing extra all begins with doing your own homework.
And once more, thanks in advance for all that do, and all that you will do…
