Why do we refuse to lower the bar?

People who refuse to lower their standards fail often. They fail so often that they learn that failure is a friend they shouldn’t be ashamed of being associated with. They get frustrated with the status quo and they believe that the impossible can be done. They surround themselves with people that also believe in the impossible and eventually they learn that the impossible is reserved for those that believe enough to fail, learn, work, and win. Once that pattern is discovered, the stubbornness that got them their first victory gets reinforced and they look at the skeptics of success with a confident smirk.
