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.

"The best leaders are dedicated to helping people improve, and inspiring them to learn from others. WithElevate, Robert Glazer gives the inspiration and tools to help anyone expand their capacity, achieve their goals and lead the people around them to take the same path."

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.
