If you wish to achieve more, then attempt more. Challenge and push yourself beyond what you already know you can do.

Get out of the rut of going through the same motions and ending up with the same results. Put some additional time, energy, thought and creativity into your actions.

Take on challenges that make you a little bit uncomfortable. That’s the secret. Push yourself and stretch your abilities and watch them grow into something beyond your expectations.

Once you decide to reach higher and push yourself harder, you'll find many new ways to move up. Raise your expectations and you'll improve your performance.

Keep on learning; keep on growing, and keep on venturing beyond what you already know. Give yourself the gift of increasingly ambitious goals.

Enjoy and appreciate how far you've already come. Then jump back in and make it even better. You will be astonished to see the transformation.
