Raise The Bar


When it comes to succeeding in any endeavor, you must be willing to raise the bar. Success is 80% mental and 20% physical. When you add the 80 to the 20, you get 100 percent. Raising the bar means that there are no short cuts allowed. You no longer just maintain the standard, you seek to excel. A plateau occurs when stagnation sets in. As students of personal development and entrepreneurs of enterprises, we must be open to raising the bar. An eagle can not fly if it stays in the nest. Life is too valuable to settle for less. Anything less is mediocrity.

Raise the bar. You are better than you think. Do not allow the circumstances of life stop you from living a pre-ordained life of excellency. Laziness and procrastination are the enemies of success. They stop you from raising the bar. When you raise the bar, you raise your level of consciousness. Including your confidence. Leaders raise the bar while followers stay under it. You will start off a follower and raise the bar to leadership.


In conclusion, commit to raising the bar. You have greatness inside of you. Life begins on the outside of your comfort zone. As you leave your comfort zone, you’ll enter a new level. Write blog posts, do videos, do interviews. Success is an inside job. It requires you to raise the bar. Anything worth having is worth working for. I believe in motivation for elevation. You have to push yourself to excellence. You can follow the pack or lead the crowd. Followers meet the standard, leaders exceed it. Raise the bar.
