5 . IT MAKES YOU STAND OUT . Sometimes , we can get discouraged from going the extra mile out of fear of the unknown . And rather than owning up to our fear and addressing it appropriately , we tend to hide behind surface level colloquialisms like “ Everyone is doing it ” or “ The market is oversaturated in my field .” Well , I ’ ve got news for you . Don ’ t be fooled by what you see posted on social media . There ’ s more people out here stuntin ’ than there are out here winning , facts only . This is mainly because a lot of people want success , but they aren ’ t willing to actually work for it . It ’ s like they want success brought to them on a silver platter or something . But piss poor work ethics don ’ t yield victory . If you want success – prove it . Not for the gratification of those around you , but for yourself . Because no matter how you dress it , people can see when you ’ re cut from a different cloth . They see the grind . They see the work ethic . The resilience . And even if they never say it to your face , who cares . You should aspire to go the extra mile anyway . made-magazine . com | 14
