Why you should never lower your standards or settle for less than what you are capable of having or becoming in your life. Why you will never be satisfied or happy with a mediocre life or giving up on your dreams and desires.
In this video coaching newsletter I discuss an email from a viewer who is struggling with the reality that he is now in his mid forties, but he’s not in a relationship yet where he can have children. He has many friends and family who are younger and who are already parents. He’s starting to worry if it takes him another ten years to find the right partner that by the time his kids grow up he will be in his 70’s and on the verge of dying.
He’s starting to wonder if he should settle and give up on what he really wants. I discuss why his line of thinking is flawed and how he should change the way he looks at things so he can become the man he’s supposed to become, and still have the life and lifestyle he really wants.
“Human beings are wired to succeed. We are wired to seek out and obtain the best for ourselves. Having the perfect life, career, body, friends, family, lovers, business, lifestyle, etc., is a process that is just as much about who we become or need to become along the journey of our lives, as it is about having standards for ourselves and knowing what we want and why we want it. All great things take time. Sometimes the things we want will take decades to accomplish. Being mediocre or settling for a life that is less than what you are capable of living, is simply giving up out of fear that it won’t work out for you, or fear that you don’t deserve to have what you want. Someday your time on this planet will be over. Give life your best shot and never give up on the things that make you smile. Living a life full of regrets is not where you want to end up when you get old. Knowing you did your best will always give you peace of mind and leave you feeling content no matter what happens.” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
