Have you grown to accept a lot of crap in your life? Are you spending to much time on jobs, tasks or people you secretly despise?
One way you can start creating an amazing life for yourself, is to raise your standards.
Figure out what you like and then raise your standards on that. Let go of all that ain´t good for you. It´s about time you stop settling!
If you deal with crap for too long it begins to seem normal because that’s what you´re used to, and you learn to deal with it. Without taking action, crap becomes a baseline by which to judge other experiences, crappifying other areas of our lives. It take torres on your self-esteem, your relationships, your health – I´m sure you can guess how miserable you risk ending up!
So right now I want you to put your hands up in the air (I´m not kidding) and repeat after me;
“Yay…..whoohuuu…I´m done settling! From this day forward I will raise my standards and I bring pure pleasure and happiness into my life!”
(feel free to print this and put it up on your board/wall for inspiration and to remind you).
Yes, I know it sounds like a very familiare ad campaign…but think about…how often do you really settle?
If you are one of those people who often hear yourself say; “I´m having what your having” or “I don´t mind which movie we are going to see in the cinema, you can choose” or “I´m happy if you are happy” …if you are a pleaser – if you are afraid to have your own opinion you´ll eventually stop feeling anything – you are at risk of being emotionally numb!
I´ll be the first to admit; I used to be that person! Just going with whatever came my way in stead of stopping, feeling and deciding what was RIGTH FOR ME! It wasn´t much fun at all!
You must raise your standards to live a better life – it´s as simple as that!
Today´s mind-blowing exercise:
Grab your journal and write the following down;
- What was your big magic moments in 2012? How can you raise your standards by bringing more of that into your life now and for the rest of 2013?
- What daily and weekly activities do you find pleasure and happiness in? How can you raise your standards by bringing more of that into your life now and for the rest of 2013?
- Are there areas in your life in which you let other people make decisions for you? How can you take your power back, raise your standards and stop settling for that? This if your life – you only get this one, don´t let others run it for you!
- What crap have you put up with for too long? How can you eliminate that or change that by raising your standards?
That´s all for today – let me know how it goes, alright! I always love to know
Happy weekend and much love, ChristinaMuch love,
