Do you often get disappointed by people? Are you frustrated with certain people? Have you gotten lazy or fallen into some negative habits in how you speak to the people you love, and to people in general? Maybe its time to raise your standards…for yourself, not others.
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Ephesians 4:29 NIV
Are you a person of high standards and high expectations? OK. But, are your standards and expectations mostly about how other people treat you? The key to great relationships and thriving in life is to demonstrate high standards in how you speak to and treat other people. It’s way more successful, and less frustrating, to build your expectations around what you can control…how you consider, speak to, encourage and build up other people.
Remind yourself every morning to be an investor in relationships, not a consumer.
Go to the notes section of your phone or laptop, or get a pen and paper out. Write down three standards for how you want to treat and speak to people. Remind yourself every morning to be an investor in relationships, not a consumer. Stop expecting perfection from other people. Expect more from yourself…more kindness, more truth and more encouragement
