#157: 4 Things You Must Have To Achieve Your Next Level of Success [Podcast]


Next Level

You’ve heard me say previously, “Life is lived on levels and experienced in stages.” Let me add on to that today in saying: what was excellent on the previous level is mediocre at best when you arrive at the next level.

How many of you would consider yourselves in a place today, where you realize what you’ve brought to where you are may not get you where you want to go?

Today, I’m sharing four things I’m certain we all must have if we’re going to make the jump to our next level of success. Here is my exclusive list of 4 Things You Must Have To Achieve Your Next Level Of Success.

The Gist:

I want to be clear in saying the four things I share today are essential factors for our success, however, each person has to examine their own situation and determine how to go about facilitating change and progress.

This includes taking a close look at:

  • Relationships
  • Habits
  • Beliefs and Attitudes
  • Context and setting
  • And so many others

What are the four things?

  1. Innovation
  2. Collaboration
  3. Determination
  4. Accountability


  • Innovation frees us to create.
  • Innovation fosters the advent of revolutionary solutions
  • Innovation changes generations.
  • We often become the prisoners of the status quo.
  • Innovation chooses to break the mold.


  • Collaboration is the process of two or more people or organizations working together to realize shared goals.
  • It is the act of working jointly with others in intellectual and practical endeavors.
  • It is the process of coming together in community around the common goal of each person being better, accomplishing more, and achieving together.
  • One of the biggest hurdles we must overcome if we are to take our lives to the next level is our cultural bent to isolation and working alone
  • The greatest innovators and companies in the modern era are ones that bring together diverse groups of people, and allow them the creative freedom to collaborate and solve problems.


  • Determination is a DECISION that settles and ends the controversy.
  • It is a firm, definite, and final calculation that leads to movement and change.
  • You cannot go to the next level if you can’t make the DECISION.


  • Accountability is quite literally the willingness to answer to someone for your actions, commitments, and attitudes.
  • If you have no one in your life that can call you on the carpet, you are going nowhere.
  • Who do you have in your life that you have given permission to hold you accountable?

In Summation:

These four things validate the real value in the Mastermind.

2. Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We are launching a brand new, next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …


To apply for membership with the Strategic Influencers Mastermind Group, please click the link below, and you will be directed to an online application. Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
