Are you reaching your goals?
Are you reaching the heights you desire?
Are you falling short of your hopes and dreams?
Are you coming in below where you want?
In your job? In your personal life?
Maybe you need to raise the bar…
Setting the Bar Too Low
Many people set their goal bar too low. They set it where they know they can reach it.
The problem with this technique is that you are not going to reach your full potential. You are not going to reach the heights that you could.
Sometimes this is due to a lack of motivation or just plain laziness.
Perhaps, it is a fear of failure. So, the bar gets placed where you know you cannot fail.
However, being too conservative produces results that are limited.
But, what happens if I don’t clear the bar?
What if I fail?
You pick yourself up. Put the bar back up. And try again. And again.
That is how you grow. It is how you increase your skills and capabilities. And ultimately, it is how you win.
Raising the Bar
Today, set the bar a little higher. Raise it a bit out of reach.
You will accomplish things you didn’t you know you were capable of doing. You will reach heights you didn’t know you could.
And remember, if you don’t set the bar high enough… you will always come in below where you want.
How high do you set your bar? Could it be higher?
