Right before I launched my last book, Life! By Design, I hit an interesting crossroads… I was on the verge of breaking through my glass ceiling and I was definitely outside my comfort zone.

Have you ever been there before?

I was so close, but I set myself up for a little bit of self-sabotage.

I was in my head, and I was scared about what was on the other side of success.

In the middle of all that I called my coach and here’s what she told me…. “It’s easy to be complacent and underperform your potential.”

It’s easy because this is what everybody does. You have to be committed to live, work, and play at your best.

Too many times we set our standards lower to appease the people around us.

When you start finding success, cynical comments usually follow.
Because we all know that when you land that big listing, most people don’t congratulate your hard work.

They think maybe you found some shortcut or did something underhanded to get it.

Look at the realities of the world we live in… Most people don’t act at a level 10 because they fear how everyone else will react around them.

When you start to disrupt the status quo by being a 10 it affects the people around you.

I’m issuing a challenge: Are you willing to be a level 10 in all areas of your life with no apologies?

I want you to be a level 10, and you can do that with these three steps.

1. Stop giving your power away.

The first thing you have to do is stop apologizing for having goals and dreams.

Your drive and desire for success doesn’t require an apology.

What that ultimately means is that you have to stop caring what everyone else thinks about your ambitions and desires to serve others and your family.

When you get overly concerned with how others view you, you are giving your power away.

2. Be on your path; everyone else is on theirs.

We all have our own path to walk… You have to get rid of the mindset that if everyone else isn’t operating at a 10, “they are wrong, and you are right.”

They may just be at another place in their own journey, and there is nothing wrong with that.

When you encounter those friends, family, coworkers, and others who aren’t operating at a level 10, you make a small shift in the way you see them.

Simply say “I choose to operate up here, I love and respect wherever you choose to operate.”

No judgment; simply love them for who they are.

3. Put on your cape.

#SuperYou I want you to think big with me for a second… How would the superhero version of you act?

What would you be like if you put on that superhero cape and got to work?

What time would super you get up in the morning?

How aggressive is super you in sales presentations?

Visualize that super version of you… See yourself wearing that cape, and performing at a level 10 in all areas of your life.

I already believe in the super version of you, but you have to believe it too… You must accept the fact that you are winner, and that you were born to do something special.

You are meant to do something great!

I know you are more than capable and given the right actions and habits you can achieve the greatness you deserve.

Are you ready to be a level 10?
