We become like our friends…

We become like our friends…

 

The people we surround ourselves 

with either raise or lower

our standards.  They either help us

to become the best version of

ourselves or encourage us to

become lesser versions of ourselves.

We become like our friends.

No man becomes great on his own.

The people around them help

to make them great.

~Matthew Kelly

We tend to gravitate toward the people

that share the same interests that we do.

 

We may have something in common with them to start with,

and then as we spend time together, we become more alike.

 

We share commonalities and abilities,

perhaps even religious affiliations.

 

As time goes on, only the people that we find similar

and that we can really get along with become close enough to influence us.

 

At that point they may draw us closer to our true selves,

or influence us to become lesser versions of ourselves.

 

They either raise or lower our standards.

 

So be careful who you choose to hang around with

because you will become more like them,

whoever they are.

Disappointment…

Disappointment…

For most, disappointment isn’t the problem; it’s what
they do after they feel disappointment – they quit.

Disappointment is just the excuse small people use to justify

their urge to quit and to enjoy a life of ease over the hard work and trial necessary for real achievements.

More conscious people see disappointment as a common

and harmless reality of having high aims and standards.

If we are not disappointed from time to time, we are not attempting anything new or bold or significant. So let

us realize disappointment is necessary and holds no real

power over us. In truth, disappointment often dies when

we adopt a learning mindset. Rather than being saddened

or frustrated to a point of failure, we must simply become

curious, asking, “What can I learn here that will help me alter my approach?

What lessons must I understand so that next time I can be even more of my best self

and provide even more of my best service to the world?”

Disappointment can be viewed in a number of ways.

 

The easier it is for you to deal with it,

the easier it will be for you to get on with your life after facing it.

 

If you make a lot out of something that you don’t think went right, you may end up suffering a lot.

You may even feel devastated.

 

Being flexible allows you to weave in and out of various situations

without being affected by them adversely, or being disappointed.

 

Do your best to allow your life to happen

without holding on too tightly or trying to influence someone else’s fate.

 

Accept disappointment like a grain of salt.

Small and insignificant yet necessary in the flavors of life.

Civility…

Civility…


Practice Civility

toward one another,

admire and emulate

ethical behavior

wherever you find it.

Apply a rigid standard

of morality to your lives;

and if, periodically,

you fail

as you surely will,

adjust your lives,

not the standards.

~Ted Koppel

 

*

Keep up your standards and live your own life no matter what any one else does.  And if you fail yourself or others, and mess up at any time just readjust  your self and keep on going.  Doing the best you can with what you have.

Follow the rules that work the best for you and your loved ones.

Raise your standards

Raise your standards.

Raise your expectations.

Raise your minimums

of what you will allow

into your life that does

not honor or respect you.

 

Be bold, push the boundries,

and you will be rewarded.

~Brendon Burchard

 

Raise your standards and keep them high.

When we have higher standards for ourselves, we help bring the standards up for others too.

It’s amazing the affect we can have on those around us, simply by being a good example.
