Do You Spend Your Time Being Ordinary and Doing Ordinary Things, OR Do You Choose To Live An Extraordinary Life?

Are You An Eagle or A Duck?

I love this story. So many of us spend far too much time being ducks. We quack (complain) about why things can’t be done or why we are not successful. This story teaches the fact that excellent service in your business, as well your treatment of others is ALWAYS a choice.

Harvey Mackay, a great mentor, and trainer tells a story about a cab driver that proved this point.

Harvey was waiting in line for a ride at the airport. When a cab pulled up, the first thing he noticed was that the taxi was polished to a bright shine. Smartly dressed in a white shirt, black tie, and freshly pressed black slacks, the cab driver jumped out and rounded the car to open the back passenger door for Harvey.

The cab driver handed him a laminated card and said: ‘I’m Wally, your driver. While I’m loading your bags in the trunk, I’d like you to read my mission statement.’

Taken aback, Harvey read the card. It said: Wally’s Mission Statement: To get my customers to their destination in the quickest, safest and cheapest way possible in a friendly environment…

This blew Harvey away. Especially when he noticed that the inside of the cab matched the outside. Spotlessly clean!

As he slid behind the wheel, Wally said, ‘Would you like a cup of coffee? I have a thermos of regular and one of decaf.’ My friend said jokingly, ‘No, I’d prefer a soft drink.’ Wally smiled and said, ‘No problem.. I have a cooler up front with regular and Diet Coke, water and orange juice…’ Almost stuttering, Harvey said, ‘I’ll take a Diet Coke.’

Handing him his drink, Wally said, ‘If you’d like something to read, I have The Wall Street Journal, Time, Sports Illustrated and USA Today.’

As they were pulling away, Wally handed Harvey another laminated card, ‘These are the stations I get and the music they play if you’d like to listen to the radio.’

And as if that weren’t enough, Wally told Harvey that he had the air conditioning on and asked if the temperature was comfortable for him. Then he advised Harvey of the best route to his destination for that time of day. He also let him know that he’d be happy to chat and tell him about some of the sights or, if Harvey preferred, to leave him with his own thoughts.

Tell me, Wally,’ Harvey asked the driver, “Have you always served customers like this?”

Wally smiled into the rear view mirror. “No, not always. In fact, it’s only been in the last two years. My first five years driving, I spent most of my time complaining like all the rest of the cabbies do. Then I heard a personal growth expert on the radio one day.

He had just written a book and said that if you get up in the morning expecting to have a bad day, you’ll rarely disappoint yourself. He said, Stop complaining! Differentiate yourself from your competition. Don’t be a duck. Be an eagle. Ducks quack and complain. Eagles soar above the crowd.”

That hit me right between the eyes,” said Wally. Dyer was talking about me. I was always quacking and complaining, so I decided to change my attitude and become an eagle. I looked around at the other cabs and their drivers. The cabs were dirty, the drivers were unfriendly, and the customers were unhappy. So I decided to make some changes. I put in a few at a time. When my customers responded well, I did more.

I take it that has paid off for you,” Harvey said.

Yes, it sure has,” Wally replied. “My first year as an eagle, I doubled my income from the previous year. This year I’ll probably quadruple it. You were lucky to get me today. I don’t sit at cabstands anymore. My customers call me for appointments on my cell phone or leave a message on my answering machine. If I can’t pick them up myself, I get a reliable cabbie friend to do it, and I take a piece of the action.”

Wally was phenomenal. He was running a limo service out of a Yellow Cab.

Wally, the Cab Driver, made a different choice. He decided to stop quacking like a duck and start soaring like an eagle. It was his choice, and it paid off handsomely.

Quote of the Week

“Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I
believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of
doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the
ability to do it even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Until next time, I wish you love, joy, happiness and prosperity and the time to enjoy it all.

I am sending you all green lights!
