    reach to achieve.

    What does this "reach" mean? "reach the standard" or "make an effort to achieve the standard"?

    is86
    ex)A popular term these days especially among teenagers is "whatever"... I have also noticed that if they don't agree with me, instead of standing up for what they believe is right, they often cave in and say,"whatever."...Don't just wait to see what everyone else is going to do then follow the crowd. Take a stand and set a standard others will reach to achieve.

    Re: reach to achieve.

    Make an effort
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
