Raise Your Standards

What does it mean to raise your standards, and how do we do that?

You are living by your standards right now. You. are. living. your. standards. right. now. Hear me what I mean by that!

If you are single, that might be because your standard is to not be hurt again. Some people are in relationships, but they are not happy, that means their standard is to only be in a relationship, no matter who that person is. And I think that is really dangerous. I hope you get the point?!

Raise Your Standard

So how do we raise our standards in both situations? Well, in the first scenario, you can do something like, go for that relationship anyway, if you have a chance, but try not to be hurt again, because hey, you wanna give him/or her a chance. Right?! Give love anyway, be support, but not expecting anything in return, because you wanna be a partner of example. Hope you get it?!

The second scenario can be something like; continue to have someone in your life, but try to make it meaningful, try to learn from each other, have fun, support their partner in any endeavor, whether you understand their actions or not.

So what happens when we raise our standards?

Everything in our lives starts to be better. Our relationships, our health, our work, our confidence, the way how we see ourselves and the world, how we interact with people, our mood. We start to be more happy, joyous, feeling content, we have better connections with the God, etc.

To raise our standards in all areas of our lives, we need to truly want that. We need to want that next level life. And do whatever it takes to level up.

I have a meetup every Sunday that I organize about: “How to take our lives to the next level”. If you wanna join our Sunday Meetup conversations about this topic, you can sign up HERE. It lasts for about hour and a half and we talk how to really get to that next level life in all areas.

What are some examples of the standards?

It is like a rule, some set of behaviours that people need to follow through. Similar like, you can”t go to church naked shoulders and mini skirt. Your skirt has to be to your knees, and you will have to have a sleeves, not the top. Also, Dubai city. There are people not kissing each other on the streets or holding their hands, people only do those things in the comfort of their home, not in the public.

I think Tony Robbins is the first guy that I heard from about how and why we should raise our standards. He is very passionate about this topic, and he is the first guy that is promoting raising standards. Enjoy learning how to raise your standard above in the video.

I love when Tony talks about raising his standard and moving to a big house, leaving his small apartment. Story goes like this; a friend of his offered the house to Tony, and Tony said yes immediately. It was weird at the beginning, to move from very small apartment to a big house. He lived all of a sudden in a very spacious environment, and of course, he felt like it is the right thing to do.

Of course he felt fear of how to pay for it, but once he got a taste of it, he didn”t want to return back. Nobody would like to. Once you get the taste of something that you like, you never want to go back .

And so, I am asking you question right now? If you raise your standard right now, in what area of your life would you first do that, and how would that change your life? I am sure, for 100% better! Can you do that right now? Ask yourself: “What has to change in my life first, in order to live more happy and fulfilled life?” And do that!

“Demand more from yourself on a daily basis to make your dreams a reality.” ATGW Source

Create hunger for more, create magical life on your own terms, and set higher standards. Higher standards can be achieved by you saying to yourself that you MUST work on your career, you saying you that you MUST find relationship of your dreams, MUST be more healthy and energetic, MUST be all the things that people want, even though they only wish for that right now.

The difference between you and them is that you MUST take your life to the next level, and they will only continue to wish for. Guess who is going to achieve goals? You or them? Of course, you! Because you MUST, and they will stay forever with the “should”, but never follow through.

Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When people ask me what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thin was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming.

Here is also a video that I made about raising your standard. I am so passionate about that, because hey, as I already said, the true changes are happening the moment when you say: “I had enough!” Watch it here: https://youtu.be/eNwwch3E29o
Life is very simple you guys. Just write down things that you really want. Write down how you want to be treated by people. How your friends should treat you. Who are your friends really. What is the place that you really want to live. How much money you must have on your bank account. Who do you must work for. What your job really must be.
You see?! There is so much more. These are only couple of things that you need to consider. And truly, when you say enough is enough, only then changes are happening. And you want that next level life, right? Everybody does, everybody. But you and me are not everybody, you and me are action takers, right? And we are going to make our reams come true, and live that extraordinary life.

How To Think Like Bill Gates

It took me quite a lot to read this book. It is full of years this and that, people that passed through Bill Gates”s life, their names, so, was bit harder to read that kind of book, for me.

But it made me think and realize how he thinks.

Let”s get to business!

Bill was encouraged to occupy himself with interests that would stretch the mind. There are those people that like to watch TV, be informed about other peoples lives, and those that are living their lives as best as they can. There is a huge difference!

Bill Gates was doing creative work, trying to build a programs, computers and whatever goes with it. Remember, your brain is like a muscle. If you are not stretching your brain, your brain dies. Do some work today, play a games that will stretch your mind. Read, read a lot.

Bill Gates always thought about himself how he could do anything he sets his mind to. Where would I be if I believed in myself in the past, as I believe in myself now. I would be in a completely different place. It is very important, actually it is crucial to believe in yourself. You gotta believe in yourself, and believe you can achieve all your hearts desires. He believed, and still believes in himself, thats why he is the one of the richest guy in the world.

He once said: “Smartness is an ability to absorb new facts. To ask an insightful question. To absorb it in real time. A capacity to remember. To relate to domains that may not seem connected at first” It is a credo that has served him well.

Don”t compare yourself with anyone in the world. If you do so, you are insulting yourself.

Find Your True Calling

Do you have something that fascinates you? Something that blows your mind? Something that constantly you wonder about? I am sure you do! So, embrace that. And start learning, research about that, and do some testing. Bit after bit, you will become familiar with this thing, and that will get the ball rolling, and soon after that, you will realize that only your brain was limiting you. Find your true love and intend to nurture it. That”s what Bill Gates did.

Gates possesses enormous personal resources and self motivation, but he also realized early on, that he needed to find like mids with whom to collaborate, if he was going to fulfill his grandest dreams.

You might have now your big big big goals, but if you hanging around with people that don”t have any goals in life, they are not driven by anything, you are not going to succeed in life. they will hold you down.

If you have some goals in life, make sure to find like minded people. People who will encourage you, people who will tell you: “You can!” Find people like this and stick to them.

A winning team needs members who are all prepared to learn from each other. Gates is blessed with sufficient self belief that he is not afraid to work with people who may have skills that surpass his in certain areas, and who are unafraid to challenge him.

If you are reading this and you read till now, I believe you wanna succeed in life. Is that right? Tell yourself! “I wanna succeed in life!” “I will succeed in life!” and “I am already successful!”

That is all grand, but do you know how to make choices? Do you? Do you know how to make a good one? Do you know what do you really want? You see, Bill Gates knew how to make a choices, and most importantly he sticked to this choices, that”s why he is succeeding.

Second important thing is to think more broadly. Let”s suppose you made a choice, and now you are thinking how to get there. You came up just to two ideas of how to get there, but there are many other ways, and you can tap into that intelligence, just if you think more broadly.

There is a lot more written in this book by Daniel Smith

How to Think Like Bill Gates (How To Think Like series)

I really hope that will help you realize how some big minds work. How and what do they think. I truly believe we all can tap into the greatness, just the only thing we need is to believe in ourselves.
