Be Around Those With High Expectations of You

It is important to continually surround yourself with people who have high expectations of you.  It is important to do things that you are good at so that you reinforce others’ positive opinions of you.

Many people surround themselves with people who have low expectations of them and this ends up doing them a great deal of harm.  You also often find yourself around others with low expectations of you because you are doing something you should not be doing or are associating with those you should not be.

When you are around those who have low expectations of your abilities, then you tend to perform in the manner they expect of you.  When you are around those who have high expectations, you tend to rise to this level as well.  Nothing is more important than finding a place where you are around those who appreciate your abilities and have high expectations of you.

THE LESSON

When people are aware of others’ expectations, they usually perform in accordance with them. Outside expectations can lead to either your success or your destruction; surrounding yourself with low expectations can, in turn, lead you to under-perform and further distance you from your career goals. When you surround yourself with people with high expectations, however, you will rise to levels you may not have thought previously possible.
