A standard is an internal goal. It’s your inner drive to achieve a result. It’s a reflection of what you consider to be acceptable or unacceptable behavior regarding results. It’s your self-imposed measure of excellence. In summary, it’s your personal commitment to be at your best when it matters the most.
Search your heart and honestly ask yourself “Am I curious or serious about superior sales results? Committed or just interested? Playing around or playing to win?”This gut-check is critical because a superior commitment is the basis to achieving superior results in business and in the business of life.
The good news is that if you’re just curious about achieving superior results, you can still produce good results. The bad news is that you’ll never achieve great results. Why?Because your results will usually be commensurate with your standards. Low standards produce weak results and high standards produce superior results. So if you want to achieve new results then you must step up and set new standards. Make sense? Your results are giving you feedback. Are you listening?
Don’t be casual about your standards because casualness leads to casualties.

It’s because the best rewards are always at the next level. If you think you’re at the top, please know there’s always another level. And you’re not going to be fulfilled until you find it. Do you need help raising your standard, to achieve the results you seek? Reach out to me, we are here to help.
