1 Group One, Forum Twelve Douglas Barnes Liberty University Greater Expectations This paper proposes that success is achievable by properly aligning expectations with one’s strengths and relationships. Clifton and Nelson (1992) assert that success comes from “a perfect match of expectations, relationships, strengths, and rewards” (p. 166). Deuteronomy 6:5 reveals a method for success: “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength” (New International Version). Success begins by establishing expectations. Collins (2001) warns that “good is the enemy of great” (p. 1). Therefore, expectations should be set high as it makes little sense to strive for mediocrity. Equally important, Clifton and Nelson (1992) recommend matching expectations to strengths: “with the right expectations, a person can achieve excellence, but with the wrong expectations, a person can be destroyed” (p. 157).
