You Must Stand on Tiptoes
The great fundraisers reach for the stars. Their sights are lofty and soaring. High expectations impel and drive their action. There is the enthusiasm, the inspiration, the passion. But always the drive to achieve high expectations. The joy and exhilaration of the challenge.
When you set towering expectations, nothing can prevail against you. You will win. It is a case of the human soul on fire.
Excellence is never an accident. It is achieved only as a result of an unrelenting and vigorous insistence on the highest standards of performance and reaching high.
They stand on tiptoes, these great ones. It demands unyielding commitment and a tenacious dedication. And thinking audacious dreams. It’s a never-ending process of striving and searching.
It’s a state of mind put into action. It is exhibited in all of my great fundraisers. It provides the fortitude and resolve to reach new horizons and break all barriers.
The great ones don’t reach for what they can. They reach for what they cannot.
