What are your expectations of yourself? What are the standards in life that you have set? Your life is based on the reflection of your standards.
In my life, I have seen so many people live in should’ve and could’ve. “I should exercise more, I should work more consistently, I could be more successful, etc., etc.“
The other day I was listening to a motivational video by Anthony Robbins, and he said something that was very profound. “If you really want to have success and you want to raise your standards, it’s important that you change your “should“ into “must.” Changing those words completely gives you a whole new mindset.
When you decide something is an absolute “must”, you are making a 100% commitment that you are going to find a way to make something happen.
When you raise your standards and you make it an absolute must, you are making the decision to take control over the quality of your life. You are raising your standards.
Is there any area in your life that you are not getting what you want because perhaps you have not raised your standards? Life is too short to settle for less. Raise your standards and live life to the fullest. You deserve the very best.
Here are a few areas of life where we can all raise our standards.
Take control over your finances. Keep track of all of your expenses. Make the decision to become debt-free. Have an emergency fund. Save for the future.
Take advantage of the opportunities you have. Work hard and become the best that you can be. Develop a strong work ethic and expect greatness. Believe in yourself and your abilities. By doing this, you will be rewarded in so many ways.
We only have one earthly body and it’s very important that we do all the things necessary to take care of ourselves.
Don’t abuse your body. Raise your standards by eating good, healthy foods. Exercise daily. Get plenty of sleep and learn to relax.
Mindset is an important key if we want to have success. Make the decision to put quality thoughts in your mind. Surround yourself with positive people and make sure that your environment is positive.
Instead of putting yourself down, learn to build yourself up. Positive affirmations will inspire you to do your best.
This week, identify where your standards may be lacking. Going forward, make the commitment to bring them to a higher level.
We are all under construction and it’s important that we continuously make the decision to grow.
Remember, you are designed for greatness, never sell yourself short. Make the decision to raise your standards in all phases of life and become the very best YOU that you can be.
Have a super successful week!
