Taking it to the next-level is more than a catchy slogan for a t-shirt, tattoo, wall poster, or bumper sticker. Taking it to the next-level needs playing out the current level, which takes some gut-spilling. Going to the next-level before some guts are spilled at the current level is delusional.

There’s a natural struggle at every level of competition in jobs, business, sports, working out, anything where achievement is a goal and by-product. The natural struggle is the gut-spilling requirement to move to the next-level. The natural struggle won’t give you a free pass.
