Make Deposits Toward Building Your Standards

Andy talking to a crowd

I always talk about how achieving anything great in life is a slow process…

Well, the same concept applies the other way around too.

99% of the time, a person doesn’t go from highly successful to a complete nobody overnight.

It’s a slow process that the average person never senses…

Until it’s TOO LATE.

See, every time you don’t wipe the piss droplets off of the toilet seat…

Every time you don’t clean the small speck of dust off of your counter…

Every time you let a small detail in your work slide…

You are making a withdrawal from the bank account of your “standards.”

You think that nobody will ever notice it…

And it’s such a small thing that you will never get in trouble for it…

Except you are WRONG.

Those small and almost negligible withdrawals from your “standards” bank account don’t look like much on a daily basis.

Just like you say every morning to yourself…

“Oh hey! It’s just a $5 coffee. It’s nothing.”

You do that every day...

And then at the end of the month…

You say, “Oh Shit! I spent $150 on coffee!”

That’s how your standards slip.

Day by day…

Inch by inch…

And after a while…

You go from a great performer…

To a person who is barely making ends meet…

Don’t get comfortable with your small wins.

Hold yourself accountable for every single thing you do…

Especially when no one is watching.

The more you deposit into your “standards” account by doing exceptional work and paying attention to the details…

The more success you will have in life.

Just like your bank account … no matter how good or bad your standards are right now...

You can start making deposits today to make them better.
