“We all act consistent with who we believe we are.” – Tony Robbins
IT= your: self, body, finances, relationships, job, business. The belief about who we are is the belief we have today and reflects what we have determined is acceptable for us, our standards. You are the person you are, doing what you do, in relationships with your current partner and friends based on your standards.
If you don’t like where you are right now in one or more aspects of your life, RAISE YOUR STANDARDS. You set them in the first place, so you can change them. You decided it was acceptable for you to earn $35,000 at a job you don’t love. You decided it was acceptable to not look put together and polished. You decided it was acceptable to eat foods that have made you sick or overweight. You decided it was acceptable to not have what you want.
Whatever level of fitness you are right now reflects your standard around health and fitness. It has nothing to do with your age, your weight, or your goal (excuses) but your standard of what you decided at some point in your life is acceptable for you.
The same goes for your relationships, financial situation and your job or business. Wherever you are is where you decided it was okay for you do be. If you don’t love it, CHANGE IT. Really it’s that simple. Set a new standard for yourself and then be so focused on implementing it that you don’t hear the doubters, naysayers and haters or people who are annoyed with the new standard- including the ones in your own head. Put up post-it notes to yourself in your house, car, purse, work. And then take action.
Whatever you decided was acceptable at some other point in your life may not be acceptable any longer but you don’t know how to change it. Changes starts with deciding where you are now is not good enough. It’s not even just “not good enough”. That sounds wishy washy. Make up your mind that it’s literally not f*cking good enough. Get passionate about it.
According to Tony Robbins, “wants and goals don’t get met consistently but standards do”. Everything is changeable.
You have the power to change anything and everything you don’t love.
You can’t change someone else’s standards, but you can change your own. It’s all about you being the best you.
Unless you already love everything about you and your life, higher standards= happier you. I promise.
