A number of people tell me their story; about all of the things they wish to do and some of the things that they have tried and then ask me “why am I still not successful?” Well I have the answer right here for you:
You Must Raise Your Standards!
A higher standard is a higher expectation of your own self. It is the only way to permanently create an everlasting change in your self-development. You have to be 100% certain, there MUST NOT be “I should” or “I would, If I could” you MUST have certainty and you need to start using stronger words, even when you are thinking to yourself about where you want to be.
The power of the voice in your head that you create is stronger and more influential than you think. You need to re-enforce the confidence that you need to reach that next level of success.
Are you willing to get a little uncomfortable? Ask yourself that honest question. Do you really deserve success? Because I believe that anything worth having is worth fighting for, and if you don’t absolutely want it enough then you won’t get it, it’s as simple as that. The resources, the people, the opportunity to learn through experience is all there, you just have to find a way to get it, and that ultimately comes down to the question of “How bad do you really want it?” YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO EXECUTE, no matter what the cost is.
Our Physique is a reflection of the standards that we set in our life. If your standard is to sport a healthy figure and live a long and prosperous life then you will hit the gym or go for a run, eat healthier food or even give up smoking etc. Even when you know the amount of work you have to put in will be highly demanding and over bearing at times, you will stop at nothing because you know the eventually the final outcome will fulfill your ideal desires.
Take an honest look at yourself. What standard have you set for yourself, was it years ago you set the standard and you are not happy with how things have turned out today? Then it’s never too late. Find the area of your life that needs improvement and change your SHOULDS into MUSTS! Make it a “For Sure” in your mind that there is no other option; it is a definite with you.
Find out what you need to do to really
What is your environment like for you? If the environment is limiting you from raising your standards, then moves and changes the playing field, whether it is that you decide to move away from negative people in your life, you make more of a conscious decision to avoid negative temptation or you find an arena where you are challenged to achieve your outcome. That means that you surround yourself with people who have a higher standard and are positive, not negative in the way they look at life and challenges that come their way. As corny as the quotes “Who you spend time with is who you” and “ ” may sound, they are true and it has been proven by anyone who lives by them. Surround yourself with people who you can grow and learn with, not people who will only drag you down.
"We only get what we believe that we deserve. Raise the bar, raise your standards and you will receive a better outcome." - Joel Brown.
