Level Up Your Life!

March 12, 2017

"You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else." Albert Einstein


If you have been following us for a while you know how big we are on self improvement. We believe that there is no such thing as achieving your ultimate level of skill and knowledge; there is always something new to learn, something great to accomplish. If you want to be successful, and, most importantly, satisfied with your life, you absolutely have to keep moving and keep leveling up. The idea of constant improvement, of always getting better and better at what you do, is something that can change your life. There are countless people out there who are very successful, yet they have refused to stop where they are. They continue to learn and improve and grow. Are you one of them?

One of the most depressing things in the world is the belief that nothing can change and that you're stuck. You don't need to live in a "certain" way. You need to keep improving whatever is working for you. You need to get better and better at what you do. If you have lost a job, make sure your next job is an even better one. If you have lost a competition show, make sure you come in better and stronger next time. You own your future and you can make it be whatever you want. 

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”  William Faulkner

Write daily, weekly and monthly goals

There is something magical about seeing your own hand writing down everything you know you want to achieve. Putting it on a piece of paper makes your dreams become real, achievable goals. Write down what you need to do each day, week and month to be better than you were in the past. You want to make sure you win this competition? Write it down along with small steps you can take right now to get closer to your final goal.

Work through your fears

Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will. What are you afraid of? Some of you may be afraid of failing, some of  people talking behind your backs. Whatever your fear, you can be comfortable or courageous, but not both at once. In the end, you have nothing to lose.Even if your plan doesn't work out you will acquire an amazing experience that will help you do better next time. 

Make decisions

This one may come as a surprise to you, but making daily decisions prepares you for taking control over your life and starting to levelTraining yourself to make decisions will ensure you are ready to step up your game when it's time.

How to Develop Your Self-Trust
How to Develop Your Self-Trust

November 10, 2019

Do you trust yourself? Most of us don't ask that question too often as we naturally tend to think that we all do. What many of us don't realize is that your level of self-trust can be different about different things. You may trust your instincts and yourself in some things, like driving your car or caring for pets, for example. But what about when it comes to making big commitments or decisions? Do you trust your intuition and reasoning to make decisions that are actually yours and makeYOU happy and not someone else?

No matter how you handled yesterday, there is nothing you can do about it now. Whatever tomorrow has to offer has yet to be unveiled – and you have no control over it. The only time you can control is NOW – so bring your A-GAME and make the best of it.

You may think you can just do it tomorrow  but tomorrow is a myth because there is always a tomorrow. If you are not going to do it now, then you may never actually get around to doing it. Make the best of the now and get right to what you planned to do.
