Are you settling for bad food and an unhealthy lifestyle? Is your body not as healthy as it could be? While binge-watching YouTube videos recently searching for motivation, I heard Tony Robbins say three of the most powerful words I’ve heard put together in my life: “Raise your standards.”
This means you should:
Raise your standards when it comes to relationships
Raise your standards when it comes to your work and career
Raise your standards when it comes to your habits
Raise your standards when it comes to taking care of yourself
Raise your standards when it comes to your health and fitness
Raise your standards! Why settle?
There are so many people in the world who are unhappy with the way they look and feel, or where they are in their lives, but then do nothing about it. Then you get those who decide to raise their standards and to start making better choices to help them get the lives they want.
They start to pick better, healthier foods.
They might start spending more time with people who lift them up and encourage them to live better and spend less time with people who try to lead them down an unhealthy path.
They might start working out to help them get fit, become more mobile, and age better
They can start to go to bed on time and get more sleep than they used to
They might try to learn new skills
They might decide to search for a better job, one that will be more meaningful
There are many many ways to improve your health. If you decide that you want to raise your standards when it comes to your health and habits, with each change you make, you are levelling up, and you are raising your standards for living.
You don’t have to set your standards ridiculously high, but I do think it is very important to aim up in life and to try to be the best you that you can be.
All you really need to do is be better than you were yesterday. Small changes over time can make completely change your life. In three years, you might look back and be amazed to see just how much your standards have changed.
Listen to Tony and listen to me now: raise your standards.
