“Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When people ask me what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thin was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming.” ~ Tony Robbins; American author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach.
Most people in this world act like they do not like themselves, as they dumb themselves down for other people just to fit in with the fools of a group, whether family or friends, and as they engage in their own depressive thinking while putting themselves down in front of a mirror also; thus lowering their own standards to mediocrity and self-pity every day more and more.
They are like beggars asking for love and attention, mistreating themselves and belittling themselves and their lives; consequently, this shrinks the human mind and brings all sorts of distortions of reality.
And because you cannot see reality now, namely that you can do more and be more for yourself, you drown in your own ego while you distance yourself from all self-love which can help you experience all happiness.
There is no more love you can have towards yourself than self-respect, because this self-respect creates mighty confidence and strength from within so you can say no to lower standards in the world, so you can raise yourself above those negative thoughts you may have and the inferior influence from people around you.
So, remind yourself that self-discipline in this is to love yourself and care enough to create the greatest life for you. Worry and work on yourself, do not listen to others. You are THE ONLY creator of your life.
