The Key To High Achievement is . . . .

“High achievement always takes place in the

framework of high expectations.”

               Charles Kettering 1876 - 1958, business, inventor                


As I see it . . . . . . .


The key to high achievement is . . . .


High levels of achievement begin with setting high expectations.


Expectations are painting the canvass of our life with a vision for the future. Those expectations can be as grand as the person can image and as bold as the person makes them.


There are no limits on what a person’s expectations are and there are no limits on what a person can achieve.


If the person’s expectations are lofty and they expect to achieve great things their expectations are limitless. They are likely to become a high achiever when the support their expectation with the effort that equal to their expectations.


What’s interesting about expectations is people tend to achieve what they expect to achieve, the higher the expectations the higher the level of achievement becomes.


For those who have set the expectation and then achieve them, they can reset their sights on new and higher levels of expectations to aim for.  


The key to high achievement is to set the bar high for your expectations.

Lou- this is another great motivational post.  Unfortunately I think we've set the bar too low in some areas but thank goodness for those who continue to raise the bar.

This quote is so very true. I always have high expectation of myself, I guess the result is exactly what I expect.

Thank you for sharing the quote with all of us.

Charles Kettering's quote says it all - aim high, achieve high, aim (or wander without aiming properly) low and achieve low.
