Standards

A personal standard that is given to us by our family is called a Principle. Our family is the principle source of our standards.

A personal standard that is given to us by our church or religion is called a Moral. The church looks after the moral standards of its congregation.

A personal standard that is given to us by our Philosophers is called an Ethic. Philosophers are life’s rational thinkers and the ethical way is the rational way.

A personal standard that is given to us by our Government, either centrally or locally is called a Law or Bye Law. Governments legally enforce laws on behalf of their electorate.

A personal standard that is given to us by our society or peers is called Etiquette or Manners. Etiquette is the manner in which our society expects us to behave.

Personal Standards of behaviour are driven by our personal beliefs that we have obtained and accrued from our family, our religion, our philosophy, our government and our society, race or creed.

Our personal standards are our fate, which decides our doom or our fortune.

Our personal standards define the boundaries that create the comfort zone that ensures our survival in life.

Personal standards have value but they are not our True Values.

True Values are unique and exclusive to our Self, they are not standard.

    Adopting other people’s personal standards limits our perspective and our reality. Owning our standards is living our own True Values, which are the attributes & attainments of our True Self – our Soul & Inner Coach.
    Other people’s standards will make us either selfish or unselfish. Living by our True Values will make us Truly Selfish and aligned with our True Self.
