Editorial Review

Elevating is challenging yourself to keep thriving; to keep pushing yourself beyond your limits to achieve your goals. People don't elevate because they're gifted or because they've got some talent that others don't. They elevate because they've found a way to keep improving themselves and reach their full potential. And so, elevaters are not a product of an innate gift, but a product of hard work. Believing otherwise might make you feel better about yourself, but it also means you'll stay exactly where you are forever.   Although not scientifically proven by any means, this book presents you with an explanation of capacity building and how it helps people elevate. Elevate: Push Beyond Your Limits and Unlock Success in Yourself and Others also provides you with actionable steps you can follow in order to build your capacity in a methodical and timely manner.

On every page, Glazer's advice is both encouraging and realistic and he masterfully combines real-world examples and clear framework for anyone to reach a higher level of achievement."

"In an act of real generosity and vulnerability, Glazer shares his recipe for integrating spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional growth to build one's capacity. We can all learn from his example, his wisdom, and also the mistakes he's brave enough to share on the journey to elevate himself and countless others!"

There is surely nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency what should not be done at all.

A big part of having a positive attitude revolves around living in the present, something most people find increasingly difficult to do.

Building your spiritual capacity is really a journey of self-actualization, a path of discovery about the unique motivations that you have within you. It’s the motor that is driving you, either unconsciously or consciously.

When you are doing things aligned with your values, you feel energized. When you aren’t, it drains your energy, and you feel out of place.

To grow, you need to learn. To learn, you need to know where you can improve. To improve, you need to be self-aware. It’s all a virtuous cycle that begins with believing that you can always get better and being open to being shown where and how.

For most of us, it is actually the lowest points that define our character and resolve and help us clarify what we want most in life. Failure and struggle are the path to success, not an obstacle.

The greater your intellectual capacity, the greater your level of achievement with the same or less expenditure of energy.

If you don’t really want to fight for it, you need to be willing to give up and move on without guilt to apply that energy elsewhere.

It’s easier and more convenient to make excuses. It’s more difficult—and far more rewarding—to believe you are fully in control of your own destiny.

Remember, great leaders don’t create followers. They create more leaders.

It has long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
