Everything you do in your business life today has helped you get to your current level of success.

You might define your current level of success in terms of your income, your current number of clients, or your status and recognition within your community.

Having gotten here, you WANT MORE. "When you have learned to appreciate what you have and where you are, then the time is close for you to let go and move on to the next level. There is always a higher level. But you can't go to the next level until you leave the one you're on. This is where the Spirit of Wisdom will give you divine discontentment." p. 54 The Spiritual Millionaire, Keith Cameron Smith.

If you're experiencing divine discontentment, that simply means that you want something more.

Here's the key: in order to receive more, you need to leave the level you're on. The level you're on is not a physical place. If it were, you'd just get out of your chair and walk away!

The level you're on is a mental, emotional, and financial place. It's the result of everything you've been thinking, speaking, and doing up til now. In essence, the way you live, the way you think, how you speak, even what you eat – it all supports you at your current level of success.

Do you want MORE success? You get to define success. Does that mean more clients, more money, more influence, to start a movement, more time off?

To get more, you have to break out of your current set of habits. Those habits help you maintain the level of success you're at: financial and otherwise. To get more, you need a new set of habits. Ultimately, you'll change the way you think, speak, act, and yes, even eat! Fortunately, one change will lead to another, so you don't have to toss out everything you're doing today. You can start moving to the next level by changing one thing.

If you're at five figures and you want six, you need to think, speak and act like a six-figure business owner. If you're at six figures and you want seven, you need to think, speak and act like a seven-figure business owner. If you want to be a top direct seller, you need to think, speak and act like a top direct seller.

I'm going to go in depth on what this looks like during a special two-part teleclass coming up in April and May. For now, I recommend two ideas:

Change your physical environment. If your office is messy, clean it up (just put stuff in boxes if you need to, vs. turning cleaning-your-office into another task that you're not doing). If you like your office, what about adding in more art work or flowers or candles, to make it even more special?
Change your routine. If you work in one room, try another one. If you work at home, go to the coffee shop or library. Which changes your physical environment as well, so this is a two-for-one tip.


Have fun mulling over how someone at your next level thinks and acts! Really let your imagination take you into this. All those ideas are possible for you. You absolutely can create your next higher level of success.
