Revealed – The Benefits And Rewards Of Raising Your Standards
Raising your standards simply means to ask for better in life. A better job, a better life partner, a better house and so on.
It’s a matter of demanding nothing but the best. This is not to be confused with covetous desire or keeping up with the Joneses.
Raising your standards is all about living up to your full potential instead of being a cog in the machinery.
• You give your best
When you demand more of yourself, to live your best life, excellence is your default setting. It doesn’t matter what job you’re in, you’ll give it your all.
During the recent pandemic, we’ve seen more people than ever choosing not to work and instead receiving welfare for sitting at home, despite the fact that thousands of companies are hiring.
When your standards are high, you’ll have pride in yourself and know that you can do better than whiling your time away at home unproductively.
If you’re in a dead-end job that neither inspires you nor affords you a comfortable lifestyle, you do whatever is in your power to start your own business and be your own boss. Or you’ll level up your skills and find a better job.
You deserve better and you know it.
• You see yourself the way you wish to be
People with high standards see themselves as winners. You’ll notice that this is a common trait found in most top performers, whether they’re Olympic athletes or high flying businessmen.
They see themselves winning the gold or raking in the profits – even when they’ve not achieved anything yet. They harness the power of self belief and believe they can, because they feel that they deserve it. Life often gives them what they ask for.
• You conduct yourself better
When your standards are high, you don’t fritter your time on trivialities. Your time and energy is precious and you harness them productively to achieve your goals.
You conduct yourself better and success finds you.
• You have no time for time wasters
With high standards, your circle of friends will consist of positive people who are winners in their own right.
Successful entrepreneurs hang out with other successful entrepreneurs. Athletes hang out with other athletes.
Successful people avoid the naysayers, haters, argumentative people on social media and other toxic people who sap their energy. There’s no return in that.
Your mental state must be positive and focused on what matters. You have no time for trivial issues because you ask more for yourself. Interactions should be entertaining, informative and even beneficial to your life and business.
Debating over politics or the latest media talking point which is designed to stir negative emotions is too low for you. You`ve raised your standards higher than that.
• Life gives you what you ask of it
In the Bible (Matthew 7:7), the verse states, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
Whether you’re a Christian or of another religion or an atheist, this verse is profound and a principle of life. The higher your standards are, the more you’ll get out of life.
You won’t stop working and trying to improve your life. Your efforts will yield fruit and you’ll progress.
For example, if you’re working a minimum wage job and making £10 an hour, your standards will make you uncomfortable earning a low wage.
You’ll study whatever you need to and work on improving your situation until you’re earning more. Over time, you will progress and one day you will be earning triple or even quadruple what you used to make at the minimum wage job.
The same applies to other situations. If you’re 60 pounds overweight, high standards will mean that you clean up your diet, exercise daily and shed the pounds until you reach your ideal weight.
If you have even higher standards, you may engage in weight training and build a toned, muscular body that turns heads.
There’s no limit as to how far you can go when your standards you hold yourself to are high.
As you improve in life through your own effort, you’ll develop a healthy sense of self-esteem and more confidence. Success breeds success.
You’ll have better self-discipline…and this will translate into you achieving wins even faster.
This is why high-performance individuals keep winning. It’s almost as if they have the Midas touch.
In reality, what they have are high standards which have caused them to have excellent habits, and self-discipline which keeps them winning.
So, ask more of yourself and of life. You can transform your life if you’re willing to step outside your comfort zone and go after what you want without settling for less.
“Set high standards for yourself and don’t settle for anything less. You are the best judge of yourself and your capabilities.” – Tony Robbins
