Your High Standards Determine How You Put Yourself Out There

A lot of decisions that people make are the result of the standards they have. It’s all about the higher the standards – the higher the expectations.

On one hand, there are people with high standards, and on the other hand, there are people with low standards in life. What standards are you choosing in your life?

For those people with high standards, everything must be taken into an account and nothing can be left out. They want nothing but greatness for their life, so they reach their full potential. And then, there are people who settle for very average goals and it brings them mediocre results. Don’t get me wrong, none of them is mistaken. It’s just the different path people choose to follow in life.

People hold themselves on to high standards in life because they know what they want to accomplish. If they don’t accomplish what they put their mind to, they get stressed. And stress can be a “drive” if they channel it as such. It’s what drives them forward to get better and better.

If you have high standards in life, you can probably find yourself associated with a great network of friends and colleagues. Also, to have high standards in life means that you choose your significant other carefully and you make sure you are treated with respect and dignity.

Unfortunately, more often than not, there are times when you forget about your standards and make poor decisions. You’ve probably fallen for someone who was clearly a bad choice for you. Maybe they were already in a relationship, or maybe they were not interested in being in a serious relationship.

There are times when you find yourself sending mixed signals and messages to someone who is not that into you. But, however, there’s no shame in trying it out with someone and seeing where it takes you. Just put yourself out there and in time you will learn what you need. Going out and dating and being in and out of toxic relationships doesn’t mean that your standards are getting lower.

In fact, that is how you will know what kind of person you need by your side. Never be ashamed for putting yourself out there. At least you are brave enough to search for love. 

People with high standards in life are in a constant search for love. They are not afraid to put themselves out there more than a couple of times and to try and date. They are sure that they will find love sooner or later because they are aware of their expectations.

People with high standards always try more and ask for more. They know what feels satisfying, they know how to stand out in a crowd, and they know what kind of a person they need to stand beside them.

I honestly admire people who know what they want in life and who do everything in their power to set their goals straight. No matter how high those goals are, the determination they have is astonishing. That is why I support everyone who enjoys the life they create for themselves.

Remember that your high standards got you to live a better life and be someone better.
