Transformative Thursdays: Don’t Lower Your Expectations

Many times when things seem to be moving slowly we are tempted to lower our expectations and settle into a rhythm of mediocrity. We were created to soar and to live our biggest dreams.  Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, we give in to fear, complacency or anxiety. We soon exchange our dreams for sub-par living.  We become stuck in a cycle.

Take a minute today and reflect on the really big dream that’s in your heart.  It may not be the one you’re currently living but it’s the one that’s under the fear, confusion, frustration and anxiety. Dig it up, brush it off, and start taking steps towards making it happen.  All it takes is one step each day.

Never settle. Never lower your expectations.  They were given to you by God as a gift for you to achieve. Take the first step today.
