Forgive me if this is an obvious question

So most people say S&P returns 8-10% a year or whatever, but when I look at SPY going back ten years, it has returns 235%…. that is significantly more than 8-10% a year…. What am I missing? are they just looking at historical gains going back further? I know the past ten years have been an outlier in terms of growth
