Aiming high in your personal and professional life is about accepting that you are made for more.
Aiming high is about having the confidence to chase those amazing dreams and having the courage to overcome the toughest challenges.
Aiming high is about recognising that life is too short to play small, and the time for you to step into your potential is now.
Are you aiming high enough in your career?
Are you aiming high enough in all aspects of your life?
Wherever you are at in your life, ask yourself this one question - "What would aiming high in this area of my life look like?"
Be honest with yourself. It is an uncomfortable question to ask yourself and will call for some deep introspection, but don’t shy away from it. This could be the most important question that you ask yourself.
Consider the first response and then, ask again and search even deeper within yourself – “what would aiming higher in my career look like?”
AT TIMES, WE NEED A BIT OF HELP TO AIM HIGH, PERFORM AT OUR BEST AND REACH OUR POTENTIAL. THE HIGH PERFORMER'S MASTERMIND IS A MONTHLY COACHING & MENTORSHIP PROGRAM TO HELP YOU WITH ALL OF THIS AND MUCH, MUCH MORE.
Challenging ourselves, asking the uncomfortable questions is a great starting point in the search for our potential. If we do not challenge ourselves, if we do not push ourselves, we will never discover what we are truly capable of achieving - and this is true in all areas of our lives.
Allow this great quote by Les Brown to inspire you:
"Most people fail in life not because they aim too high, but because they aim too low and hit."
Aim high, hit high
Don't be the person who aims too low. Starting today, starting right now, set a new standard for yourself, not because you can, but because you must.
You see, when you keep your standards lower, it may feel good in the moment because you are achieving your goals. When you set your standards higher, when you aim higher, you start to perform at a very different level. You think differently, you empower yourself differently, you act and achieve differently. In this state, not only do you serve yourself well, but you start to add greater value to the businesses, people and communities around you. Aiming higher means reaching for your potential. It also means serving and creating greater impact in the process.
Aiming high in life is not a selfish quest, but a quest that could lead to positive and lasting impact on yourself and on people connected to you.
Aim higher, set bigger goals and grow into your potential.
Your time is now, aim high my friend!
