Who do you look up to? Who is your role model? Why have you chosen to shape your life in the way that you have?
These questions all deal with one vital concept: Setting the bar for your life.
Have you ever bothered to define what you expect to achieve in your life? Most people in this world do not take this step. It is easier to live a life without expectations… to live without accountability to yourself or to others. Living in this manner requires little thought, reflection, or intention.

Which category do you fall under? Are you satisfied with existing, or do you have the desire to truly live with intention? If you believe yourself to be in the latter category, take a moment to examine your life from the beginning to now. It is easy to say “Yes, I am a person that chooses to live well”, however it is quite difficult to admit that your life up to this point has been less than intentional.
Regardless of where you find yourself in at the moment, now is the time to set the standard for your life. A good first step is to lay out a list of measurable goals that, if accomplished, will improve the quality of the life you live and will be of benefit to others.
Ok, time to take action.
