Touch the Sky - AHM #2

The saying- "you have to crawl before you walk" is all to familar. Today I can confidently say that I dont believe in it. In the grand scheme of things, this saying calls for one to settle...crawling often means for you to aim low and then build yourself up. But if you know what you want and you think that you can do what you want, why not aim for the top. Why cant we have everything we want when we think we are ready for it. If im fresh out of college and I think that I would make a wonderful community organizer, why not go for that very position. When people aim low, they sometimes get comfortable and cease to ever reach the stars; their drive decreases; and ultimately, they are okay with not being all that they could be and living up to their God given potential...its problematic.
In short, we need to stop being scared to aim high. Instead, we need to make sure we are prepared, take the necessary steps to attain the goal and go for it. When you position yourself for mediocracy, its exactly what you get. Sometimes you have to go out on faith and position your life in a way where success is the only option....
