Zig Ziglar said, “There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.” He had a powerful gift of saying things in a simple way that carried the impact of a sledge hammer. Zig was a believer in going the extra mile, or putting more into something than others might be expected to contribute. He never supported anyone getting something for nothing. As a matter of fact he said if you “aim at nothing; you will hit it every time”! He believed in hard work, perseverance and doing the right things.

These ideas are keys to the extraordinary life promised to the followers of Jesus; a life of faith, good works and glory.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

If you are looking for a place that won’t be crowded – where you are sure to stand out and shine – go the extra mile in everything you do.

Humbly yours and forever His,

Tribulation has been promised to the children of God (John 16:33). Received appropriately, it also promises to be good for us. “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” Calvin Coolidge (borrowed from the Apostle Paul)

But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Romans 8:25

As Christian Leaders in the Workplace, we have a strategic advantage. As spiritual beings, our vision is supernaturally attuned to the things we do not see. Our hope is not dependent on the temporal. Tribulations and trials do not tear us down. By the grace of God, they build us up.

God has put a hope in your heart for the things of His kingdom, in the workplace. He is looking to show Himself strong on behalf of those that will wait for it with perseverance. Take a moment and prayerfully consider the area in your life that is calling out for faithful perseverance. Joyfully join into the Holy Spirit’s work for your transformation (2Corinthians 3:18; Romans 12:2).

Humbly yours and forever His,
