The Bar

Should you lower the bar for yourself,
you’re less likely to accomplish anything that matters;
when you lower it for others,
there’s little advantage in,
or advancement from,
beating the competition;
if you raise it for yourself,
accomplishments set you apart,
and failure is something to dread and,
therefore,
to avoid,
and when you raise it for others,
the benefits of achievement are reserved for those who have,
or choose to develop, ability.
This is because there’s no premium on mediocrity,
except in the mind of the Progressive,
who knows that the unaccomplished,
the unchallenged are easier to manipulate and control.
