Continuing with my Little Things series. Because I am running out of things to talk about.
I hear crickets at the site these days.
Set Your Standards High
First things first. You may be wondering, what are personal standards? Well, think of them as the set of behaviours, beliefs or values that you have decided to live by. Standards govern how you live your life, what people learn to expect from you, and what you’re willing to put up with.
So what behaviours, beliefs and values determine your daily habits and routine? What identity or story about yourself have you created in the minds of others? What are you putting up with or tolerating in your life? Answering those questions determine your current personal standards.
If you want to change your life, you have to raise your standards. ~ Tony Robbins
Draw a line…then live above it. The negatives you encounter fall below the line…doubt, fear, resignation and defeat. Joy, gratefulness, faith, belief and trust rise above it. Strive to live above it. ~Carole Chalmers
Setting our standards high can give us a better quality of life, agreed?
