“Leveling up” is making tomorrow’s you better than today’s you.
Leveling up is striving for at least 1% self-improvement in a day.
Getting 1% better means spending time and energy doing things that are dedicated to becoming:
- more positive
- more educated
- more well-spoken
- more generous
- more patient
- more focused
- more experienced
- more comfortable being uncomfortable
Pick something. Improve 1% on that one thing today.
You have too much opportunity to stay the same as you were yesterday. Too much ability to be static. Too much potential to not capitalize. Too much fulfillment to miss out on.
Leveling up might demand turning the TV off and cracking a book. It might require getting more sleep tonight, or waking up early tomorrow to exercise or read or stretch. Leveling up might mean paying for a gym membership that is too expensive so that you are forced to actually go. Leveling up might mean setting up your paycheck to auto-save so that you stop spending your money and wondering where it went. Leveling up might involve learning a new word, or taking up a new hobby or skill. Heck, it might even be as simple as having better posture when you sit or stand. It’s that easy to improve and make the tomorrow you 1% better than the today you.
Whatever it is, do it.
