Who’s The Boss?
Everyone has the same boss
by Earl Nightingale
Everyone has the same boss – the customer. Everything you bought, he’s paid for.
They pay your bills, write your paychecks, and will discharge you if you displease them. Customers will spend their money only with those who they feel have earned it. Earning your place in the economy must be done every day, all over again. Your rewards are in exact proportion to your service. A person might be underpaid for a while, but the scales of life will balance eventually.
Try to estimate the portion of your ability that you’ve given to your work – you can increase your tangible and nontangible income by increasing the portion of ability you’re giving. Inner satisfaction comes immediately when you do a little more than you’ve done before. If we expect others to give us excellent products and service for the money we spend, shouldn’t others expect this of us?
A person who thinks they can obtain maximum return for minimum effort is kidding themselves. Try each day to find some way that you can improve your current work.
“One sure sign of greatness is a lasting legacy, And Earl Nightingale’s message has certainly stood the test of time. This book reflects the story of an iconic man doing an iconic talk. And The truths you’ll find here are as relevant today as when Earl first put them on a flimsy, temporary acetate record for his sales team years ago.”

“Is there someone you look to as a primary influence—someone who fundamentally changed your way of thinking, for all time to come? Perhaps it was an author, a pastor or a motivational speaker. For me, that person is Earl Nightingale.”
