Dare to Live without Limits

Don’t fall into the trap of low expectations

        How much you accomplish in life is influenced by what you expect to accomplish. Those with low expectations have a low threshold for what they will be satisfied with. For them mediocrity or less, is good enough.

        People with high expectations have a standard of excellence for themselves and what they want to achieve. They push themselves to accomplish challenging goals. They set the bar higher than may be comfortable.

Don’t let your behavior close doors that are open to you

        Hoping a door to opportunity will open for you is a common desire. We all want good fortune to look down on us. Yet, too many people close the very doors which have been opened. This is accomplished through careless, thoughtless, or stupid behavior.

        As one example, you have just gotten an interview appointment for that dream job you have been hoping for. There are several ways you can close this door. If you are late, dressed inappropriately, unprepared, or poorly spoken, you will not be considered for the position you are seeking.

        If you do get hired, your job performance must be such that you meet, or exceed the expectations of your employer. Slacking off, doing shoddy work, consistently showing up late, gossiping, or acting unethically are just some of the many ways to lose your job.
