Raising The Bar…

Reaching expectations is probably the greatest lesson a teacher can share. To prevent a student from accepting mediocrity as an outcome can be  life changing. It is up to us as parents, teachers and mentors to give the next generation the tools it needs to succeed in life. This was what I witnessed today, with my school’s Demo Team. After “Raising The Bar” to where I believed they should be, and not accepting good as good enough. They were able to work beyond their expectations and perform at a level they can be proud of. They didn’t just show up they were the show!

We need to understand that when we allow ourselves or others to lower  standards our quality of life will be lowered as well. It is my belief that this could be our greatest failure as a generation and a nation. It is up to us to expect better from ourselves before we ask it of anyone else.

The greatest danger

for most of us

is not that our aim is

too high

and we miss it,

but that it is

too low

and we reach it.
