"A crowd is not a community. To have community, expectations must be met. Many of us have grown up with the false belief that it is wrong to be dependent upon one another, that it is unfair to set high standards of performance and that it is unthinkable to hold EVERYONE accountable for their contribution to our failures, as well as our successes. In summation, we have chipped away at our expectations of ourselves and one another to the point that they barely even exist.
Once upon a time, educators spoke of the Pygmalion effect, or the self fulfilling prophecy. It basically says that students do better when their teachers hold them in high esteem and set high expectations for them. The same is true in all human relationships. Expectations are a function of trust. Booker T. Washington said that nothing does more to build a man up than to let him know that you trust him.
And so, in our efforts to build high performance community, the Orisa Lifestyle Academy is dedicated to setting equally high expectations. More importantly, beyond expectations, OLA16 offers the training to help you meet our high expectations. Learn more at www.OrisaLivestyle.com. Live the medicine."
