Recently TheXfvctor released his new “Raise the bar” video series and I found it really inspiring to know that a young Jamaican Disk Jock was taking a different approach to how the world see DJ’s. As I watched the video more it lead me to ask the question “What Does It Mean to Raise the Bar?” Personally I’ve learnt that the business and entertainment landscape is always changing so you have to get with it or get left behind but most of all you have to stand out in whatever you do. Raise the bar and change your life .Here are 5 ways you can raise your bar and change your life.
1. Get out of your Comfort Zone
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” I always hear people complaining about how things aren’t going their way and how they aren’t reaching were they want to go in life. It’s simply because we get comfortable with where we are in life and we keep on doing what makes us comfortable , leaving little room for change. In order for us to get outside of our comfort zone we have to do things that are going to makes us uncomfortable but what’s the worst that can happen ?. It better to do something that you’ve always wanted to do more than living with regret and always wondering what if you did.
2. Believe in yourself and your Dreams
One of the most important things I’ve learnt is that if you don’t believe in yourself or your dreams no one else will. People follow and look up to persons who are living their dreams they tend to ignore the persons who lacks confidence, does this sound like you? I hope not. A little confidence goes a far way and once you believe in yourself and your dreams anything is possible Just believe.
3. Do It With Passion
Not everything that works for other people will work you. Just because you see people from the industry that you are in doing something that doesn’t mean it will work for you. Stay true to what you believe in. When you find something that you are passionate about you’ll know because you will wake up every day and think about it and how you can make it better. If you don’t find what you are passionate about as yet don’t worry it will come, and for those who have found their passion already, work on what you do best and make a difference.
4. Do It Big
If you have a big idea on how you can make your brand or business strive work on it and make it happen. What’s the worst that can happen from trying? Exactly. Doing it big means thinking about how you can take your idea from point A-Z. Sometimes doing it big means to execute your plans as effectively as you can. The bigger the better.
5. Be Different
In a world of copy cats set trends that people can follow. The first trend you should always set is to always be yourself. Don’t fake it, just be you. In order for people to believe in you and your brand they want to see the real you. Being different means taking things to the next level ,think outside the box , think how you can improve on what’s already been done , keep it creative and raise the bar.
