Raising the Bar{0}

Everyone has their take on expectations. If we don’t expect too much then we’ll never be let down.  But isn’t that complacency?  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to settle.  Shouldn’t we be prepared to get out and raise the bar in hopes that people join us?

If we expect for everything to be sensational then wouldn’t it be written?  The possibility of ancient scrolls containing our memories that haven’t happened yet and what is left to be forgotten?  High on a shelf with the keepers of our akashic records and our destiny cries out that thoughts become things and actions reap rewards. All we have to do is believe.

a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future

Our life expectancy is mostly unknown and life is long so we have to fill it. All we need to know is our what and the Universe will take care of the how. Irony at it’s finest and you just can’t give in to the notion that it’s going to be another one of those days.  You can change the course of a day with one split decision in any given moment.  Acceptance brings about fair play and if you expect the worst you will get the worst just as truthfully as if you expect the best you will get that instead.

When you were younger and you knew what you wanted to be, it never occurred to you that you couldn’t be that Doctor, or FirePerson or Super Hero. You implicitly believed with all your heart that you were unstoppable but then one day life might have happened to you and it got the best of you but you can change back. You can decide right here, right now to be that undeniably unstoppable unconditionally believing in the impossible child that you once were.

regard (something) as likely to happen

If you embrace the wonderment of a child, magic happens. You can create your own reality and make your own opportunities and no won’t ever be an option. For every no you are closer to that yes. For every stumbling block you go higher up the mountain. Imagine the possibilities and don’t let go of your dreams.

You are never to old to make a change or too young to go out on a limb and it’s absolutely never to late to raise the bar.

You ready to do some lifting?
