If you want to start living life on a new level you must raise your standards to a greater level, observe the people at the bottom, middle and top, look at their standards, all three levels of people have different standards, some of their standards may be similar in some aspects, however the most important standards are the ones in which successful and unsuccessful people differ greatly, which are, work ethic, commitment, focus, ambition, determination, aspirations, action, consistency, persistence, vision, courage, motivation, personal responsibility, humbleness, passion and integrity.
The people at the top excel in most of the above mentioned areas, they have developed these skills to a higher standard, they raised their standards in these areas so that they can go from where they were, to where they want to be. Do you think that the successful people of the world have the same standards as the people at the bottom, if they did they would be in the same position as them. Start to demand more from yourself, observe the masses and see what they do, and do the opposite.
Work hard, work smart, set goals, make plans, plan your days and use your time effectively, be known for your hard work and be smart with your time. Be committed to success, learn everything that is relevant, and do what needs to be done. Focus on one task at a time, do not try to do a million things at once. Be ambitious and aim sky high, who said there were any limits, limits only exist in our minds. Be determined to succeed and aspire to become more and achieve more. Be action orientated and talk less, write out what needs to done and go achieve it. Stay consistent, it is daily consistent action that matters the most, every single day you have to make time for success. Persist until you see results, keep on moving forward, find a way or make a way, if you persevere you can accomplish anything. Have the vision to see who you truly want to be and believe it with certainty. Be courageous and take action, don’t be held back by your fears. Motivate yourself and push yourself everyday to become better and take personal responsibility for your life and know that it is up to you. Be humble as you rise up and help others along the way. Be passionate about what you do and give it your all, it’s all or nothing, you must go in one hundred per cent. Be a person of integrity, if you say you want to become a successful entrepreneur then do what needs to be done, it is either you want it or you don’t.
The standards of the people at the bottom and middle are low compared to the people at the top. No ambition, no goals, no courage, no drive and no consistency. Do you want to live like everyone else, people are struggling in life because of their low standards, their standards are leading them to failure, but they seem unaware to the fact that they are the ones who hold the keys to their success. When you change for the better, your life will change for the better. When you raise your standards, you will see your standard of living change.
What you have now is a reflection of your standards, if you have not started your entrepreneurial venture it is because you’re not serious and your commitment standard is low, if your commitment was high then you would’ve started your venture and you would be making progress. Take action today, use what you have now to get you started, just take the first step.
Where do you want to be in five years time, if you want more, start to do more, demand a higher standard from yourself and get busy working on your dreams, today is the day to raise the bar and raise your standards, no more living like the average people, it’s time to go into a league of your own, separate yourself from mediocrity, and step up to the league of the greats.
