HOW TO ELEVATE TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Today I attended Jesus House Brent Cross and Pastor Agu’s message on how to elevate to the next level was both timely and instructive, so I thought to share my notes in the hope that it will prompt you to take action like it did for me.

These are 7 points that we need to follow, if we want to elevate to the next level.


Knowledge

Wealth is not money. Wealth is knowledge. People who have knowledge are people who progress and elevate to the next level. The world is full of problems and people are desperate for solutions. The solution providers are the ones who will elevate. They are set apart because of their knowledge. God has called each of us to use a particular area to serve in the world. How much knowledge you master in your area will determine the success you elevate to, because people always gravitate to an expert.  We need to be cautious however, that if we seek knowledge outside of God, we may end up puffed up or arrogant.


Prayer

The journey of life is a spiritual warfare. The enemy attacks are devious and scheming. We know that Jesus who is the son of God spent time praying to his Father. So what is our excuse for not praying? Praying is the most important point for elevating to the next level. There’s a lot of wishful thinking in the world but in reality someone who has been on their knees has a better chance of victory over life's battles. What is your prayer pattern like? Your prayer life must match your dream.




Persevere

Jesus spent 30 years in training before he started his ministry. The process of maturity takes time. The body of Christ want magic. They want to see immediate results.  Many give up because they dont persevere. Ask anyone who has elevated to the next level and you will find that they have gone through a challenging journey before reaching great success. The route to success is many failures.

Plan

It is impossible to reach a destination without a road map. A goal without a plan is a wish. To hope is just to believe something will happen. One has to sit down strategically to plan. Most plans are abandoned because of no plan. So many businesses fail because they haven’t invested in a marketing plan.



Time Management

There is a time for everything under the sun. It is impossible to do anything without mastering time management. Take advantage of time because once it’s gone, its gone. Why not invest in time management training. This is a very important skill, as it teaches you to be more efficient. More efficiency increases profit to any business.

Focus

The final point that pastor Agu talked about today is Focus.  I believe that being focused is really about discipline. What you focus on you become.

This is a great acronym that he shared
F. Follow
O. One
C. Cause
U. Until
S. Successful



So that’s the message that I noted today. I hope you found it useful. There’s a catch. You need to do something. If you read this message but don’t take the necessary steps then you are unlikely to get to the next level.

Here are some ideas
·        Invest in personal development training
·        Invest in business training
·        Invest in some business books
·        Review your SMART Goals
·        Create an actionable Vision Board
·        Create a daily to do list
·        Acknowledge and list your wins
·        Set aside time for prayer
·        Download a prayer app
·        Read a proverb a day
