Millionaire Habit 1: Always Exceed Expectations

Aug 17, 2007
Those people who always exceed expectations are known as Value creators and they end up as the rich and wealthy of our society.

If they are paid $3,000, they will work as if they are being paid $20,000. If they are expected to generate $10,000 worth of profits, they will create $30,000 worth of value!

They are called value creators because they create value for companies. It is through their efforts, that the company makes more and more profits every year.

As a result, their income is not considered an expense to the company, but a great investment.

Even in periods of downturns, when everyone else is getting retrenched and pay cuts, they get pay increases, bonuses and stock options.

The company knows that for every dollar they invest in them, they will return triple the value. These people are the high flyers who get promoted super fast and get their incomes doubling and tripling in a few years.

In the past, income was based mainly on seniority and loyalty. The longer you stayed, the more you were valued.

In today's world, income is based entirely on the amount of value you can create. It is not uncommon to see people who are much younger, with a lot less experience directing businesses and earning lots more than senior workers who have been with the company a lot longer.

Value creators are indispensable assets to their company! They are very hard to replace. And that is why companies will pay them more and more and offer them partnerships to retain them.

Value creators are never out of a good job. They are usually head hunted by other companies all the time, the head hunters offering to double their income if they join them.

This habit does not just apply to employees, it applies to anyone from sports stars to business owners.

When Michael Jordan was interviewed and asked how he became the world's greatest basketball player, he replied, "I expect more from myself than anyone would ever expect from me! When my coach expects me to train three times a week, I would train five times. When my coach expects me to score 15 points for each game, I would score 36 points! That is why I am the best in the world".

Do more than anyone expects of you and you will find the river of success flow like an never-ending stream into your life.

Cultivate this habit now and you will start to see results immediately.
