"No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see the possibilities - always see them - for they are always there."
Norman Vincent Peale
Each and every one of us has been meticulously engineered for success by our Creator; placed on earth to accomplish great things. Not some of us, all of us. There are no exceptions to this rule. But in order for us to reach out and secure our destinies we must commit ourselves to excellence daily.
No matter how low we may have sunk or how far behind we may have fallen, we have what it takes to make a difference. We truly do! In spite of the seemingly insurmountable odds that are stacked against us or the unfortunate circumstances that may surround us, we can rise from the deepest depths right to the top of the heap. We truly can!
"If you do not raise your eyes you will think you are the highest point."
This bottoms up journey upward begins the moment we commit our lives to excellence from the inside out. When we arm ourselves with an "I can" attitude and actively cultivate an unwavering belief in our God-given abilities, there is absolutely nothing that can keep us from reaching the top. But in order to ascend to the top, we've got to be willing to show the world what we can do. And that means giving yourself a raise.
So shake off the cobwebs, it's time for you to raise a little ruckus. You heard me right, I want you to raise a little cane right here and right now. Hey, don't be timid or shy. This is your life and you can raise a little heck if you want to do so (and make no mistake about it, you do want to do so). You have come too far and worked too hard to back up or back away at this point.
"Be bold, be daring and don't be afraid to raise the roof. Even if you just nailed one down."
It is time for you to let your hair down and throw caution to the wind - and that is exactly what you are going to do right now. So cut loose, let go and let it rip. Don't be shy and for goodness sakes, don't hold anything back. You will be amazed at the amount of emotion you can generate and the amount of commotion you can stir up when you raise the roof in your life each and every day.
You can immediately raise your performance by working with a little more fire, a little more fervor. By passionately chasing your dreams and aspirations with everything you've got, you can make a big difference in a short amount of time. When you pursue those things that bring our your best, those activities that you truly love, you'll not only be happier than ever before, your personal performance will be immeasurably enhanced as well.
"Start early and begin raising the bar throughout the day."
But why stop there? Why not raise your standards for living by committing, with all of your heart and soul, to a life of excellence? When you establish excellence as the standard for your life's journey, you raise the expectations you hold for yourself and your future. Hey, there is nothing wrong with expecting the very best out of life. You have to expect big things in order to get big things. By systematically raising your expectations, you continue to raise the bar higher and higher, forcing yourself to grow and get better daily.
In fact, just about every facet of your life can be raised up a notch or two (maybe even three, four or more) when you start expecting big things from yourself. The bold, big time goals that you set for yourself can power through those self imposed limitations that have held you down and held you back in the past - if you let them. So let them!
When you start raising the roof every single day of your life, you will discover that nothing is impossible and no worthwhile goal is ever out of your reach. So why don't you go ahead and get... a little rowdy, get a little... wild, get a little... crazy. Kick in the doors and
... raise a little cane,
... raise a little ruckus,
... raise a little heck and
blow the top right off of the roof once and for all. You can do it! Yes, you can.
The Bottom Line: When you raise your expectations to heights unimagined, your life will rise to unimagined heights.
