I remember many occasions when I have acted below standards.
But the fact that I am conscious that I have acted below, shows that somewhere in mind, standards are there. I am comparing my deviation with those standards.
Does this not prove that I am a man of standards?
Probably not. Knowing high standards is good. But not living up to those high standardseven when knowing those standards, is “Failure of a Man of Standards”.
Some psychologists suggest, we should lower the bar of our standards, so that we can feel “Good Enough”.
But the true pleasure lies in climbing a mountain and fixing flag at the top of mountain. True pleasures are in living up to the high standards which may have been set in our mind.
