Raise Your Standards

If you’re committed to your own growth, to making the changes in yourself and in your life that you need to make, then you earn the right to raise your standards accordingly. When we raise our standards, it’s like giving ourselves a personal promotion. Promotions feel good. When we achieve that new level of status, people rise up to meet us at those new standards, and our lives improve dramatically in love, career and opportunity. There is no better feeling then watching your life change as a result of your own hard work, willingness to look truthfully at yourself and your life, and having the determination to change where you know it is necessary. It is not selfish to raise our standards unless we haven’t earned them. Fake people are easy to spot because their entitlement is always so loud and pompous. When we’re genuine, the hard work we put into ourselves is deserving of us raising our standards. Each change we make pushes us up to living at a new level of life. Each change we make also brings new levels of positive into our lives. As we see our own sense of self-respect increase, it will be mirrored back to us in how we are loved, treated and viewed by other people. That is the greatest gift. When we raise our standards we become kinder, more loving, more compassionate people. That is what life should be about. As we become more, life becomes more satisfying.
