Have you ever been in a situation where someone wants you to give 100% of yourself? Or maybe you have even been ask to give 101%. Are those requests even possible? I found this interesting mathematical formula where one may be able to give over 100%. Here is how it works.

Suppose each of the 26 letters of the alphabet are represented by a number.

For example:

A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9, J=10, K=11, L=12, M=13, N=14, O=15, P=16, Q=17, R=18, S=19, T=20, U=21, V=22, W=23, X=24, Y=25, Z=26

Then:

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E (11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+ 5) would equal 96%

And:

H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K (8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11) would equal 98%

But:

A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E (1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5) would equal 100%

Now, let’s assume your life displays the love of God :

L-O-V-E- O-F- G-O-D (12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4) would equal 101%

Therefore, one can reasonably conclude with mathematical certainty that while Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it’s the Love of God that will put you over the top!
