Set Your Own Standards

It's time we stop judging ourselves compared to what others are doing. I did this for years, and it made me very dissatisfied with myself. I was never content with who I was or what I was doing. I came across this David Goggins quote and I loved it! "I set my own standards. I started to reinvent the wheel for myself. I didn't follow the crowd. I did what I had to do to get where I had to go, and in doing that, that's where true growth is. It's okay not be exactly like everyone else. It's okay to NOT follow the crowd.

Tired of Buying Expensive Shorts that Don't Fit well? Awhile ago, I bought a nice pair of shorts for $70. Each time would wear them, as the day would go on they would get more uncomfortable.
