To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned man's character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours.

A higher standard

If things are not working well for you where you are, raise yourself to a higher place. Choose to raise your standards.

Consistently expect more of yourself and you will get it. The quality of your life is driven by the quality of your standards.

Are your efforts not bringing the results you seek? Then find a way to improve, enhance and expand those efforts.

Yes, you can do it. There’s always room for improvement, and with each little improvement you raise your standards and become more effective.

Don’t fall into the trap of blaming the economy, the weather, other people, or cruel fate. Step up from where you are to a higher place, and commit to making a better life for all those around you.

Align yourself with your highest, most authentic purpose. Life will always meet your standards, so raise those standards high.

— Ralph Marston
