Do You Have High Standards?

Do You Have High Standards?




While watching a short Anthony Robbins video on the subject of goal setting, a particular statement caught my attention.


"You don't always get your goals but you always get your standards"

~ Tony Robbins


The above statement is an insightful observation suggesting that all results, good or bad are directly linked to the standards we keep. This may not be a revelation to you; however I suspect many people have not made the connection between the results they're getting in life and their standards (personal benchmark of acceptance).


If every choice made is a reflection of the standards we hold ourselves to, how high are your standards?

On a daily basis you are revealing your standards in the way you approach your work, family life, friendships and associations, condition of your health and dietary habits. All decisions made in these areas speak volumes about your level of self-accountability. The more self-accountability you have, the higher your standards. In contrast, the less responsibility you take for your personal outcomes, the lower your standards tend to be.


No one will readily admit to having low standards but I think we can all agree there is always room for improvement, especially if we're not getting the results we want. Poor results are nothing but an indicator that we need to 'raise our game' or up our standards. In all honesty, it's just not possible to get great results if we are operating on a sub-standard level.


How to raise your standards
Raising your standards requires the willingness to be honest with yourself. For example, you may practice high standards in some areas of life but fail to hit the mark in others. So, take a moment to think about the areas in your life which would benefit from an elevation of standards. For example;

Is your current approach to work giving you the results you want? Perhaps you could 'up' your standards by becoming more efficient. Take more care in the planning and execution of tasks by aiming high with your goals but remaining flexible. Start as you mean to finish with the expectation of a favourable outcome. High standards attract high praise, and we all like a nod of recognition for the good efforts we employ.

Health and wellbeing
It is often said 'you are what you eat' and therefore the foods you choose to consume are representative of your personal standards. You don't need to be a health and fitness guru to know that a diet full of refined foods, high in sugar and unhealthy fats will never deliver essential vitamins and minerals. In fact, such a diet will deplete the body of energy and increase the risk of developing serious illnesses. Whether we frequent the gym or spend lengthy periods of time on the sofa watching TV, our standards never lie and are on display at all times for all to see. When making decisions on what to eat or being active, think about your current standard of operation and how you could take it up a notch or two. The great thing about standards is 'you' get to set them.

'You are the company you keep'. Have you ever stopped to consider the quality of the people you surround yourself with? This question is in no way insinuating that some people are superior to others, rather it is acknowledging that there can be a positive or negative affect to spending time with certain individuals. While some associations uplift and inspire you, others have the capacity drain and derail you. People with high standards tend to seek the company of those who are like-minded. In contrast, people of a negative disposition will seek the company of those who share their pessimistic outlook. The danger is it's very easy to let your standards slip to the point of surrounding yourself with those who will not only welcome but encourage you to lower your standards to a level to match theirs. Think about the impact of your current associations, what value do you bring or receive from these relationships?

It's important to identify whether you have surrounded yourself with complainers who prefer to blame others for their misfortunes, or positive action takers who are constantly looking to raise their standards.

It's far better to miss a goal but maintain high standards throughout, rather than hit a goal and fail to uphold any standards at all.
High standards will always shine through and reveal your true strength of character. Make the pursuit of high standards your priority and your end results will speak for themselves.
