The Gift of Responsibility and “the Extra Mile” Man¬¬––Shawn Anderson

Responsibility connects your life to a bigger story. To gain responsibility is to gain awareness, not just of your own self, but, others as well. Joven Hundal and Kenneth Jeon read chapters from Be the Star You Are!® ( and then interview the leading voice on the power of the “go the extra mile” message, Shawn Anderson. In 2009, in order to symbolize the “go the extra mile” message, Shawn Anderson (a non-bicyclist) pedaled 4,000 miles ocean-to-ocean, interviewed 200 people along the way whom had been identified as having gone the extra mile, and then gave $10,000 of his own money to the people and organizations whose stories most inspired him. The momentum of this unique day has continued to build each year since, and on November 1, 2018, 552 mayors and cities made the “Extra Mile Day” declaration and recognized the value of the extra-mile volunteers who were making a difference in their community.

Be responsible for yourself and others and go the extra mile.


“When you accept 100% responsibility for your experience, you gain 100% of the power to create the experience you would choose.” Alan Cohen

BIO: Shawn Anderson

Shawn is a #1 ranked motivational author, unlimited thinker, and lifetime entrepreneur with a history of inspiring others. A seven-time author, Shawn is also the creator of Extra Mile Day…a day recognizing the power we each have to create positive change when we “go the extra mile.” (On 11/1/18, 550 cities made the declaration and recognized local extra-mile heroes.) His books include The Four Fibs, SOAR to the Top!, Amicus 101: A Story About the Pursuit of Purpose and Overcoming Life’s Chaos, Extra Mile America: Stories of Inspiration, Possibility and A Better Life: An Inspiring Story About Starting Over

Shawn walks his talk. Besides having inspired tens of thousands through his speaking and writing (including an inspirational speaking tour in the Philippines attended by 20,000 attendees), Shawn’s built a million dollar company, pedaled a bike solo across the U.S. (twice), and created adventures in 45+ countries including having walked border-to-border across six (England, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Italy and 750 miles around Shikoku, Japan.) 


Still…he believes his greatest adventures and success are waiting to be lived.
