Raising Your standards, are they high enough?

Let’s talk about raising your standards. The question is are your standards high enough? When I was beginning to pursue my goals and dreams of making a great income online, and to be able to obtain financial freedom in my life to leave my full-time job (which I have since accomplished), I had to learn how to raise my standards and must-haves. What I mean by this is we often in life don’t always get our should do’s, or someday wants, but we usually always find a way to achieve and obtain our minimum standards and must-haves list for our lives. So part of my learning how to achieve the goals that I had of financial freedom and income results, was to learn how to raise my standards and must have list to a higher level. Raising your standards is actually a huge part and key to achieving your goals and dreams.

For me replacing my job income to live life on my terms was non-negotiable, and making my first $4000-$10000 per month online to earn my freedom and become a full-time entrepreneur to accomplish my goal and dream became my minimum must have and standard for my life. It wasn’t something I was going to “try” to accomplish, but it was something that I was going to accomplish as a minimum standard for my life. In my mind I set it as such a strong standard in my life that I was SO determined and focused to make it my reality that it didn’t matter what was in my way or what hurdles I had to overcome I was going to make it my reality, and I was going to do it as fast as possible. When you make this resolve of your goals mentally it really changes the game, and really puts you in a state to really achieve what you are going after at a rapid pace.

I want to challenge you to go ahead and list out your dreams and goals that you are really serious about making a reality in the near future in your life. Then I want you to make them your minimum standards of what you MUST make happen in your life, and you will not stop going 110% until you at least those minimum standards you define become realities in your life. Make sure you are real with your self, and ask yourself if you are raising your standards, and are they high enough? Raise your minimum standard bar for your life goals, and then put “S.M.A.R.T Goals” (Check out my post on smart goals) in place to actually make them happen in your life. Make your goals so vital in your life, that you will NOT relent until they happen in your life, make them so important, so life and death if you will, that your goals and dreams become such a standard that nothing can even think about standing in your way. If you do this, and work your SMART Goals consistently, you will change your mental state and take such massive action that you will be amazed at how fast you can make those dreams become your reality.

Go ahead and take a few minutes and really think about this, think about what you really want in your life. Think about how you can be raising your standards. Think about what you want to really become a reality in your life in the next 6-12 months, and then set those as your minimum standards of what you are GOING to accomplish no questions asked! Once you have defined this, go ahead and turn them into “S.M.A.R.T Goals”, and start taking more massive action then you ever have in your life to make them happen.

We want you to know that you can do this, and you can truly make your dreams and goals become your daily reality!
