Smashing Expectations

One of the coolest things to watch is someone achieve something more than what they were expected to. To break through a plateau that they have reached. There are countless stories of someone getting counted out, put into a box or having everyone around them deciding who they were and what they were capable of. But I love the perseverance and determination in people to shatter expectations. Where their only limits are those that they put on themselves.

Each of us have dreams and goals that we want to achieve. We have aspirations of the team we want to make or the job we want to get. To attain what you desire I promise you that you will struggle. Everyone will go through The Dip as Seth Godin calls it. But if you push through and overcome those obstacles, you will be amazed at what is possible. So often in life the one that holds us back the most is the person in the mirror. We believe what others say and we set the bar lower for ourselves so we feel good about reaching average rather than seeing how high we can actually go.

Yes there will be struggles. But take every setback or failure as an opportunity to grow. We learn more from our mistakes than our successes. Achieving greater things is found in the little day-by-day steps we take. Growing, improving, taking feedback and getting better. Keep working. Keep striving. Set your sights higher, on what you want, not what you think is or isn't possible. We are all capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for, or what others think is possible.

Smash every expectation, starting with your own.
