The Raising Personal Standards IQ Matrix and accompanying 29 page eBook explore the value of living life to your highest standards. By raising your standards, you begin to expect more of yourself in every situation. And the more you expect of yourself the more likely you are to succeed. You succeed because higher standards improve your performance and encourage personal growth and development. And because most people have low standards, your higher standards will allow you to take advantage of opportunities that others simply cannot access.
This mind map walks you through what it means to raise your standards. It breaks down a five-step process for raising your personal standards. It provides you with guidelines for living with higher standards. And it explores scenarios where you should be lowering your standards of performance. As you work through this map and apply these principles into your life, you will achieve more with fewer resources at your disposal.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Raising Personal Standards mind map.
- Your Personal Standards: The first branch of this map explores what it means to raise your personal standards and the resulting impact this has on life. It may even surprise you to learn that raising your standards impacts your choices, decisions, behavior, and actions. After all, your personal standards determine the quality of your results and the quality of the life you choose to live.
- Raising Personal Standards Process: This branch of the map explores a five-step process to help you raise your personal standards. This process presents you with step-by-step instructions and includes questions for self-assessment purposes. These questions will ensure you remain focused on creating your best life. The process of steps includes clarifying your goals, analyzing your current and desired reality, identifying mentors, defining your standards, and utilizing pain and pleasure to create desired changes.
- Guidelines for Raising Your Standards: Before you raise your personal standards, there are things you must take into consideration. This branch of the map explores the things you should do and the things you should avoid doing when it comes to raising your personal standards. Some of these suggestions are quite straightforward. There is, however, incredible power in simplicity.
- Lowering Personal Standards: At times, raising your standards may not be the best course of action. This branch outlines when you should lower your standards. There are specific circumstances when lowering your standards can be incredibly beneficial. You will, however, need to be vigilant and aware of these circumstances as they arise. This branch will help you gain that needed clarity.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for raising your standards and for achieving your goals. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively begin living a life aligned with your highest standards. And as your expectations rise, you will push yourself further towards the attainment of your goals.
