The #2 in the 11 most common rules to be awesome every day is to raise your standards.

Have you ever wondered what separates high achievers from everyone else? What separates the extraordinary from the ordinary?

If you asked 100 people, you are likely to get 100 different answers. And their answers will range anywhere from self-belief and wearing the exact same style of clothing every day to living with a sense of urgency and being lucky. Often when answering the question about what separates ordinary from extraordinary, you will hear someone invariably suggest the catchphrase, 'giving a little extra' or 'doing a little extra' with an emphasis on the word extra.

But there must be more to what separates high-achievers or extra-ordinary achievers from everyone else.

Think of this. If you are into sport and say you are a soccer fan. What separates players like Lionel Messi or Christiano Ronaldo? Or what separates quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Payton Manning or more recently Aaron Rodgers from the rest of the quarterbacks in the NLF? Equally, you could ask what separates Serena Williams, Steffi Graf or Martina Hingis from the other women's tennis players?

Do they have more talent? Is it that they are more naturally gifted? Are they bigger or stronger or more skillful?

In some cases yes and in many cases no. Some of these people are bigger and stronger and some of them have a little more natural talent then their fellow competitors, but I don't think that really is the answer.

In all honesty, when you consider the very best high achievers in golf, cricket, rugby, football, tennis or soccer, the high achievers in law, accounting or engineering and in almost every field, it is not because they are stronger, smarter or more naturally gifted. It is not because they have been to the best schools, come from the best families or even have the most money.

What I have noticed is that there is one overriding thing which separates the high achievers from everyone else and that is a constant drive to set and meet a high set of personal standards. You know, those expectations you have of yourself. The benchmark you set for yourself. Personal standards.
