About Creating Drama – A Chart

Drama! Who doesn’t like drama? Everyone likes some drama. Everyone really likes drama when it involves other people. Sometimes, we even like a little drama in our own lives. It keeps life interesting.

What most people do NOT like is hearing about drama all the time. Seriously, that kind of nonsense is not healthy. It is not healthy in the sense that no one needs so much drama in their lives. It is not healthy in that the more drama is constantly being shared the more people will want to stop hearing about it.

They will also equate the individual sharing the drama of others as the kind of individual that is sharing their own life to others (drama or not). The scary part is that when no drama is available, these individuals will create drama only to validate their own existence.

Great Individuals, Great Leaders do not become Great because of the drama they create, especially when there is none to create.

Those individuals with the low standards and boundaries are the first ones to look at when drama is being created out of thin air. Through whatever misguided sense of having to make themselves the center of attention by sharing or creating any kind of drama are NOT a leader anyone wants to follow. Ultimately, they will become the individuals that no one will want to have around.

Again, you create what you make and you get what you give.

Maintaining Above Average – A Bell Curve

Maintaining an Above Average level of Standards can either be the most difficult thing you can do or the easiest thing to do.

Maintaining an Above Average level is most difficult when you lack the discipline, the commitment, the dedication, and most of all the SELF-RESPECT to move beyond what you know you must do.

Having the Self-Respect, Discipline, Dedication, and Commitment must become almost second nature.

Once you move up to a higher level of standards, the same need remains for discipline, dedication, commitment and most of all, Self-Respect. The need remains because as I continue to mention it is hard work to keep raising your standards.

The moment you slip and decide it is “too difficult” to keep putting in the work is the exact moment you fall back into your past and welcome back with open arms all that has kept you down.

I am not here to tell you to get to work, but I am here to tell you, you get exactly what you put in.

Until Next Week, I am David Guerra and I approve this message.


Your Standards & Boundaries – A Chart For You

Then comes setting your boundaries. Plain and simple if you have NO BOUNDARIES then that is just an open invitation to let anyone into your life. Most certainly, there is the possibility that High Quality individuals may enter your life but if you have little to no boundaries do not expect those High Quality People to stick around or arrive in herds. However, those that will arrive and stick around are those that with little to no boundaries themselves as well as little to no respect for themselves, let alone any respect for you.

Another certainty is that having few boundaries will certainly attract those individuals that will do everything they can to test your boundaries (at first) then abuse the fact that you have little to no boundaries. So, yes, they will use and abuse you because of your failure to make, identify, and maintain any type (or kind) of boundaries. That is because they are ONLY in it for themselves.

Set your Standards/Boundaries HIGH and the only people you will be attracting are those that also set HIGH BOUNDARIES for themselves and expect others to RESPECT those boundaries and standards, no questions asked because they are giving respect in the first place.

A reminder: To Raise Your Standards and Set Boundaries, they have to be permanent. For those of you that think it is cute to say your standards are higher than your heels. Your heels end at your ankle and that is STILL pretty low to the ground.

Lastly, when it comes to setting Boundaries & Standards, they cannot be in form of a band-aid because others expect it and all you want to do is half-ass it. Remember, Success NEVER comes from doing anything Half-Ass.
