IKONIC AUDIO ARTICLES
Yes, it’s another tweet inspired article but this one touched my soul. When I think of high standards I’m not referring to Gucci table cloths and Red Bottoms but I imagine that thick line that one draws between what’s acceptable and what’s unacceptable. For example, I require a man to open the car door for me, him merely unlocking the car and expecting me to hop in – no – that’s unacceptable to me. Baby Mama drama – unacceptable. Situationship mentality – unacceptable. Chronic Netflix & Chiller’s – unacceptable. Lack of goals – unacceptable. Lack of consideration – unacceptable. Self-sufficiency – acceptable. God fearing – acceptable. Dream chaser – acceptable. Spiritually inclined – acceptable. Goal-crusher – acceptable. If I allow the unacceptable traits and characteristics to take life and root into my potential relationship I would have to compromise for a lower quality experience.
One more time for those in the back.
If I allow the unacceptable traits and characteristics to take life and root into my potential relationship I would have to compromise for a lower quality experience.
Why should I do that? Why should you do that?
Set your standards and stick with those standards, only bend those standards when you deem necessary.
If you’ve tethered yourself to those high quality standards and then lowered them for a person of interest, please don’t expect high quality results. Do you go to McDonald’s expecting Red Lobster quality? No, thus you need to stop doing that in your relationships, in your work, in your friendships. Don’t let your standards fall in any aspect of life rather that’s relationships or your career or in your parenting etc. Low quality experiences are not enjoyable, their frustrating, their demeaning, their time consuming. You can’t get your time back. However, let me be clear, your standards should be directly correlated with what you bring to the table. Don’t expect a promotion at work when your a lazy employee. Don’t expect Birkin bag gifts when you don’t even make the cost of that purse per year. Don’t expect your kids to listen just because you will them to, you must practice discipline with them. Essentially, be realistic and be willing to reciprocate the energy you desire.
You got this!
