PwC: Luxury hotels overview

Today’s quote is from the amazing Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time.
Jordan made the profound statement:
“You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.”
That’s important insight into the value of expectancy.
As a differentiating value, expectancy means anticipating with confidence of fulfillment; or a belief centered on the future.
Jordan didn’t become so great by accident or luck. He believed in a great future by anticipating it.
His confidence came first, and then his competence quickly followed.
Many people like to reference the statement “believe in yourself.” But Jordan’s statement brings greater clarity to this idea. His belief is centered on the future because he expects it. And he expects it from himself.
What about you? Do you have a dream? Do you have a desire to do something great or become the greatest in your field? If so, I encourage you to carefully study the value of expectancy. When you combine anticipation with confidence, and a willingness to challenge yourself, you might just become the Michael Jordan in your field.
Now, wouldn’t that be cool?
