Are you ready for the next level? It's easy to say yes when we think about all of the benefits the next level offers. When we stop to evaluate what's necessary to reach our desired level and to stay there, we must ask ourselves if we're ready to do what's required. "To who much is given, much is required," as noted in the scriptures. In other words, as you move up to the next stage in life, you'll be required to sacrifice more of yourself, gain more responsibility and you'll have to take the steps to gain more knowledge about that new level.
The question to ask yourself now is, "Do I have the character to sustain me at my desired level?" Be honest with yourself, in order to properly assess your daily habits, decision-making and your current lifestyle. Once you've acknowledged the areas that may be lacking, decide what changes you needs to make. Some of those changes may include a daily exercise regimen to feel more energized and to improve your mood, so you can successfully manage your new responsibilities. Perhaps you need to create a structured workflow that will empower you to be consistent with completing day-to-day tasks and commitments. Decide what new goals you need to set that will help in launching you forward to that next level.
Whatever changes you need to make, in order to position yourself to level up, begin taking steps right away. Write down what you plan to change in your life, make the necessary adjustments and execute. Don't try to make big changes in one day. Start small and slowly increase your capacity along the way.
Your present state is your platform to practice and demonstrate to God that you can be trusted with more. So maximize your current state by making the most of it. Level up, today!
