What if I told you that you can become more and achieve more? What if I told you that your dream can become a reality. Maybe you are currently stuck and don’t know what move to make next. Or maybe you are doing well but would like to grow beyond where you are. Whatever the case, here are three keys to your next level, be it in life, career or business.

Key #1: Create Clarity

Clarity is king! With that in mind, why don’t you stop for a minute, take a deep breathe and ask the following questions? What do you want? Why do you want it? Answering these two clarity questions will help you determine your destination, as well as create in your mind, a sense of purpose or motive, that provides the drive to get to where you want to go. In other words, creating clarity, is getting clear on the future you hope to create, and will position you for greater levels of success.

Key #2: Build Competence

It is impossible to be a success in any sphere of life or business, without a certain amount of competence. Competence, which is having the skills or ability to do something effectively and successfully, will be a prerequisite if you are to take things to the next level. Build your competence therefore, by learning the skills required to do what you said you wanted to do during your clarity exercise. Practice those skills until you are unconsciously competent where they are concerned. This means you have become good at what you do, even to the point of being masterful.

Key #3: Execute

To get to the next level you need to take the necessary actions for getting things done. The job will never get done by wishing; only by doing. Remember that when you decide to do something it’s just the beginning. Interestingly enough, the difference between successful people and those who are not, isn’t that they are smarter but rather that they are much better at execution. Hence, in order to win you must execute!

So do you want to take your life or business to the next level? Then you must create clarity around what you want and why you want it. You must also build competence by mastering the skills required to get you to where you want to go. Finally, you must execute, by consistently taking action until you hit the desired target.
