The Baggies only preserved their Premiership status on the final day of last season after Bryan Robson worked the oracle at The Hawthorns.
The Midlands club started the current campaign with an encouraging result after a 0-0 draw at Manchester City.
Another season of struggle is widely predicted for West Brom, though, but Greening believes the club can set their sights higher.
Greening is looking to the example of Everton, who went from being just outside the relegation zone to the UEFA Champions League in the space of 12 months.
The former Manchester United midfielder is confident that, if the players adopt a positive mindset, there is no limit to their achievements.
"Teams like Everton should be our inspiration," said Greening.
"The gaffer has told us he doesn't want us to be in a struggle this season and who knows?
"There's a definite feeling here we can go on to finish a lot higher this time."
