Aiming High

Tuesday September 10, 2013 #557


“We aim above the mark to hit the mark.”


~Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is a time-tested truth:  Always aim to achieve results greater than required.  If you do, it is highly likely you will always achieve at least what is expected and often much more.  In so doing, your achievements will bring you success, and likely appropriate rewards.  If you only aim at what is expected, you are guaranteed only ‘satisfactory’ results and will often achieve less than expected.  This is a recipe for mediocrity at best, and failure at worst.  Aim high and achieve beyond your dreams.

    • Yes! Relationships are a great place to practice this choice we have. Aim high for choosing a partner, for your own benefit and theirs, and if you already have a partner aim high in your assumption of their goodness. People usually live up to the expectations we have of them. Assume the worst and you will likely get it. Assume the best and be positive and encouraging, and you’ll likely get that too!

    • Absolutely! Dream big, dream often. But always remember to take action – even something small – to move you towards your dreams!
