Hello Everyone,

"Excellence is not a skill, it's an attitude."

- Ralph Marston

Standards guide our actions and decisions. They are not just goals to achieve; they are reflections of our character and commitment. To raise the standard means to elevate our aspirations and to align our actions with higher ideals. It is about setting a precedent that improves your life and encourages others to follow.

"The standard you walk past is the standard you accept."

- David Morrison

Being the standard is about embodying the values and principles we advocate. It's a conscious choice to live by example, influencing others through our actions. This requires continuous self-awareness and integrity, as our actions set a template for others in our community.

How can you, in your daily life, elevate the standards for yourself and those in your community? 

This Week's Charge:

Identify one aspect of your life or community where standards could be raised. Commit to one action this week that will improve your situation and work to set a higher standard in that area. Document your action and its impact on you and those around you.

Forge Forward,

Jon Mayo
