#258: The Next Level Challenge (Part 1)

What is it, why should I pursue it, and who is responsible?


next level challenge pt 1

On today’s program, I want us to begin to explore what it means to take our life and leadership to the next level.

I’m also going to be sharing with you why the next few weeks are so very strategic for me, for our podcast, and for our work, AND why what we are sharing is going to make a massive difference in your life.

For the next two weeks, let’s talk about The Next Level Challenge: What is it, why should I pursue it, and who is responsible?

What Is The Next Level? 

  • Let’s begin by considering the meaning of NEXT LEVEL.
  • The term “next level” is not necessarily defined in the dictionary, but if you look broad and deep enough, you will deduce that “next level” is somewhere different than where you are right now!
  • It’s higher, farther, more productive, more lucrative, more influential.
  • It is outside of the ordinary; beyond normal; a notch above the status quo.
  • It represents better, bigger, and MORE!

What’s At Risk:

Are you willing to settle for what is getting you by, or are you ready to go after ALL that is available to you?


  • Health
  • Marriage
  • Relationships
  • Finances
  • Spiritual life
  • Mental/Emotional Well-being
  • Education/Personal Development


  • Dreams/Goals
  • Business Endeavors
  • Career/Job
  • Charitable work
  • Social contributions
  • Making a difference
  • Serving your community


  • Pastor
  • Staff Member
  • Para-church ministry leader
  • Marketplace

Wherever you are, whoever you are, there is a NEXT LEVEL waiting for you even now!

Closing Thoughts:

  • What if you had an option to do something different?
  • What if you could pivot to more meaningful work?
  • What if your WHAT, WHERE, and WHO were to change substantially in the next 12 months?
  • What if you could dream without limitations?

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We have recently expanded for a few openings in our 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.
