How to Improve Your Life By Raising Your Standards | Change Habits to Raise Your Standards


In this video I will explain how to raise the standards to live better quality of life and if you don’t know what your standards are or how high they should be then please stay tuned this video is also part of seven day challenge sheet series so at the end of the video I will be giving away personalized challenge sheet so you can start to execute towards your goals. Hey guys this is Janis from “Driven by Goal” helping you to achieve your goals our standards reflect who we are in every aspect of our lives from our relationship to how we look our finances everything is controlled by our standards furthermore these standards were most likely set subconsciously influenced by environment taught by our parents and teachers in schools and most of the times these standards are lower than they could be which means we’re not reaching our full potential and this is exactly why raising the standards are extremely important to live a successful life and reach our goals so why you should raise your standards the chances are that there are many things that you think you could do to improve your life like losing some weight for example or getting extra hours of sleep or maybe putting in an extra hour of work or study yet you never do that this is because your standards are too low and by raising your standards you turn your shoulds into must which allows you take you control of your life and reach your full potential so let’s start with identifying the standards first we must identify our standards in order to improve them and that is done with the simple self analysis how about your appearance what standards do you hold towards your weight and certain people have a certain standards toward their appearance models for example have very high and clear standard and nothing above is acceptable same goes for the boxers who want to stay in a certain weight class to compete the question is what standard you hold towards yourself and if you’re happy with how you look and how you perform then that is fine but if you’re not then you just identify the area well you should raise a standard what about your room is it tidy and organized or is it messy and full of chaos the state of your environment directly reflects your standards for it is your standard to be tidy and organized person or do you accept yourself as a messy and unorganized person because you are what your standards towards yourself are I want to share four areas of your life well you can raise your standards number one is health have you ever said to yourself that you’ll go to sleep on time but you never do have you ever thought to yourself that you will start to eat healthier starting from tomorrow but you never do then that’s your standard for your health if you actually want to improve your health you have to commit to it right now number two finances do you have a savings for a rainy day are you following your spending regularly if not then you probably consider yourself as a person that is bad with the money and that’s exactly right there is your standard of course if you don’t want to leave it like that then you will have to do some work on your standards towards your finances number three is relationships your relationship should bring you a joy and happiness meeting your friends should be fun and interesting rather than enforced and for the sake of having the friends who always needs your hand but when you need something they’re always busy if you raise your standards here you can have the friends that inspire you and you look forward to meet them each time number four your attitude your attitude shapes your life from the very moment you wake up to the moment we close our eyes to get some sleep what we think we are is what we are because our minds shape us into reality and if you don’t like what you are then you have to raise your standards towards yourself so how to raise your standards by now you have probably identified some unacceptable or lower than expected standards that you hold it might be spending money ineffectively or eating unhealthy or wasting time on unproductive activities like watching Netflix or just randomly browsing web there is a great method by Tony Robbins whereby you identify your existing standard and then you rewrite it with a new belief it is a thought process that has to be accepted by yourself we often wait until somebody is pointing the finger into our face or we get embarrassed or disappointed with our low-hanging standards until we take a notice of it and improve it but it doesn’t have to be like that it can be self initiated process to improve ourselves so here is an example you current belief might be that you’re bad with money so you should rewrite this belief and you could say it to yourself I have full control over my finance but this is only beginning you must also act on this new belief follow your spendings each week to see where your money actually goes I decide to give yourself a consideration period for any purchase above a certain price tag instead of spending your money decide to transfer some of your money to your savings account and that is how you do it you identify the area of your life where you want to improve your standards and then you rewrite your existing beliefs once you’ve done that look into the actions that you can take immediately to raise your standard don’t wait for tomorrow because tomorrow will never come it is always one day away so do it immediately and I’ve made it super simple for you if you want to take an action I’ve prepared a challenge sheet so you can take the knowledge that you learn in this video and apply it into the real-life actions over the following week just before we jump into this week’s challenge I wanted to share another example of standards from the real life I remember when I was in the school I was very good at sports so what I was expecting was to have only excellent grades in sports any kind of sports whether it was throwing or running or jumping I was always expecting a high marks and that’s how I performed whereas other guys who weren’t as fit they were quite happy to get average marks and they actually were very happy to get average marks because that’s what they standard were but if you have a look from different perspective for example in the math I would be quite happy to get medium marks in math same as they were happy to get medium marks in in sports and those same guys who were medium in sports were getting or were setting their bar higher into the math so they were performing much better in the math I hope this helps to illustrate that the point I’m trying to make that the standards have set for each person on each different subject or each different topic and all you have to do if you want to raise your standards is to make it conscious decision and put work and effort to achieve your higher standards so finally this week’s challenge so this week’s challenge is to identify one of your standards for your health finances relationship or any other aspect of your life that you deeply care about and raise the bar keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be a significant change you can improve over the time and raise your standards slowly bit by bit to get your challenge sheet go to the description box below and download it from there
