How This Couple Discovered Their Strongest Life

If you’re not getting the things you need, don’t wait…change. How? By choosing to change. You have to make the choice.

Today we are talking with some fantastic people. Mike and Cathy have been through Next-Level Life individually, and had phenomenal experiences. We like to share these stories, because we get people asking about Next-Level Life events all the time, wanting to know what it’s like, and wanting to hear about the process and results from the inside. This is Mike and Cathy’s story.

Here’s our conversation:

Q: What was life like before your Next-Level Life Events?

Cathy: Life was full of misunderstanding. I did not know how to get perspective on what was happening, how I was reacting, and what the reality of the situation was. There was a lot of confusion. I thought what we did was normal, I told myself,  “It just, is, that’s how it is and how I deal with it.” I didn’t realize I was confused. I was used to seeing the same results…

Mike: It was a lot of anger, hurt, frustration…insecurity. When I tried to grasp for control, and people didn’t understand that I was trying to make things better, I would hurt people in the process. I was a control freak causing damage to my family, that’s not what I wanted to do. It was an insane spiral of me feeling insecure, and grabbing for control.

chris-quotes-for-social-7

Q: Why did it take you so long to decide to come through the event?

Mike: Self-worth. I didn’t feel like I was the guy who could be successful with the tools from the process. I wanted to be that guy, but couldn’t see myself that way. My internal conversation was 24/7, and very self-deprecating. The other thing that scared the heck out of me was, I didn’t want to come in and have all my past brought to the surface, stuff that I was unaware of. It was stepping back and trusting you guys when you said, “this isn’t going to uncover things from your childhood that are hidden to you right now…” This event is not about that.

Q: What are some specific things that were holding you back in life? Period.

Mike: I did not realize it until Next-Level Life, but I very much had a victim mentality. I allowed it to drive so many decisions, along with fear, and it paralyzed me. I was my own worst enemy.

Cathy: Being a mom and wife, I realized that I was putting off my own self care so that I could take care of my family. I wasn’t taking care of myself.

…and how did that work out for you?

Let’s say that things are much better now. *laughter* I came through Next-Level Life realizing I have to actively love me, as much as I am pouring into loving others. I can do what God created me to do, without making myself lesser to that service.

Q: How were your Next-Level Life events…?

Mike: I came away with the record of most sheets of paper… *laughter* I have never had anything lay out my life in such clarity. I had issues with family…they trained me a certain way, and I trained my children that way. I vilified people because I was hurt so much, and when I went through Next-Level Life I literally came out with a different perspective, rather than putting someone as the “bad guy,” I understood and felt empathy.

It was THE MOST freeing experience.

I came away with peace I had never experienced before. I was scared (that word doesn’t do it justice) to do the event, but I needed something else, more. I didn’t have the answers…The answer to why I was where I was.

As soon as I came back I began implementing, changing.

It impacted me like nothing I’ve done in my life before.

The change in me and the change in Cathy has been so substantial, we have one child coming through in a few months and another child coming through Summer of next year. These are adult children that are making the decision to come on their own because they’ve seen the change. You can’t get your kids to do stuff like that if they’re not genuinely seeing the benefit.

They are seeing their dad become a dad.

Cathy: My Next-Level Life event was powerful, eye-opening. It wasn’t just gaining perspective, it was shifting perspective. Everything is right there in front of you, and there are things that you are missing, that you’re just not seeing. That baggage you come into adulthood with, the perspective on that can be shifted because you have someone guiding you and walking you through seeing things from a new set of eyes. There was no taking sides. It’s done kindly, lovingly, and strongly. I didn’t feel strong-armed into seeing or feeling a particular way. I was challenged on “is that reality? Or are you just carrying a perspective you came in with?”

Life doesn’t stop happening after the event. For you guys, you went through some really tough stuff AFTER your events. How did you guys deal with that after your Next Level Life events?…

To hear the full interview, listen here:

The thing is, your life does not get better by waiting around, by someone coming and taking care of it for you. The government is not going to do it, your family is not going to do it. Your life is not going to get better by chance, it’s going to get better by change. To have change, you have to make a choice. Learn more about Next-Level Life

Why Biblical Perspective Grows Your Business, And How to Get It

September 20, 2016 | By | No Comments">No Comments

Subscribe in iTunes

You don’t need great experience to pull off that business venture or big transition.

The fear of failure, of not being capable, is overcome by understanding. Maybe you’re here: you don’t feel like you know everything about how to get started, what to do, or how to make it work. Here’s my suggestion, fill in the blanks! You must have great perspective to not have fear.

When it comes to fear, what most people are missing is quality perspective. I see this ALL the time. Here’s my rant…

God’s not going to call you to do something, then let you fail.

One of the biggest misconceptions that people have, unfortunately from decades and decades of bad Christian teaching, is the belief they are standing on a rug and God is holding onto the edge to just yank it out. That’s horrible teaching, it’s not true. God has a plan to prosper you.

We don’t believe God has our best interest at heart.

If God is telling you to do something, there is NO reason to not step out there. He’s not confused or changing his mind. Step out and pray for help with unbelief. That’s the faith side of it. The business side of it is a little different. 

Here’s what you’ll discover on the business side this episode:

  • What categories you need to gain perspective on for you business
  • How to define your platform
  • Forming a plan for reaching your audience
  • Differentiating yourself and your offering in the market
  • How to advertise to grow your brand and connect with your ideal customer
  • Determining the demographic that will be receptive to you
  • How to tailor your message to your audience
  • How to get your product or message in front of people

You can’t just sell a product. If you do, people will be bored with you. You must become relevant to your customer’s life. Speak to them in a way that makes them think, “Man, that [fill in your name], I want more from them.”

GAIN PERSPECTIVE.

When you gain this perspective, you actively remove obstacles from the table. What is left over becomes a clear picture of what you go after.

When “Going with Your Gut” is Holding You Back

“The fear is not going to do anything for you. That surface level response needs to take a hike.”

On today’s show we have four phenomenal questions from our podcast listeners! We hit social media and creating a greater tribe, social anxiety and networking, surface level responses, distance communication with your team, how to bring perspective to leadership, and when having a remote team is detrimental to your business. WOW. We have a jam packed episode today. Let’s dive in!

Here’s what you’ll discover:

  • Strategies for video advertising on social media
  • Tactics to create loyal customers
  • Social anxiety and what it has to do with your Root System
  • Why networking does not come naturally for some
  • What TO do and what NOT to do in distance communication at work
  • Bringing new perspective to your leadership team
  • When a remote team is detrimental to the business

On some of these questions, we blow past the surface level response the listener is focused on and get to the core of the issue. Here’s taste of our conversation on social anxiety:

“As long as you keep seeking human beings for that affirmation you will never solve the issue that you’re feeling right now. Man can’t do anything for you in that area. It will only happen if you put God first, if you make him more important. Is there one person on earth that can impact eternity? No man can impact your soul.

The fear is not going to do anything for you. That surface level response needs to take a hike. Discover what’s in your Root System that has caused you to feel unworthy and not good enough…”

Subscribe in iTunes

“Doing your work as unto the Lord…” how to turn a church buzz word into a successful mindset.

TODAY our conversation is centered around the #1 thing I have done in my life as far as growing a business and work. Our first caller asks, 

“Professionally, how do I get a game plan to go to the next level and become a top performer in my field, and also be able to spot business opportunities.”

Here’s a taste of what we talk about:

  • Doing your work as unto the Lord: how to turn this from a church “buzz word” into a successful mindset
  • The one factor that overrides a growth mindset, financial planning, and diversification
  • The big “difference maker” between career fulfillment and failed events
  • Where society’s concept of “hustle” is greatly lacking

Then we dive into setting culture:

  • How to motivate team members to complete tasks
  • How to successfully bring on new hires (to get work done you need them to get)
  • You have to force the culture that you want, or other people will force it for you.

“You’re going to have to come up with their ideas.”

Ever felt like fixing bad culture in a business is an uphill, almost impossible, battle? It is when there are cynics and naysayers resisting change. I was talking with Jim Collins years ago, and his definition of a cynic is…

A hopeful person who’s tired of being let down.

Here’s what you’ll discover on today’s episode:

  • How to lead in a change-resistant culture
  • How to motivate employees when your supervisor has lost hope
  • The right questions to break your team’s negative mindset
  • How to implement change when the leadership team is stagnant
  • The questions you have to ask to fix a broken culture
  • The best approach to combatting cynicism in a leadership team
  • How to cut through bureaucracy to reach a solution
  • How to unite leadership teams and third parties, get them “on the same page”
  • The process of setting goals with multiple areas in your business

“If people don’t know where they’re going, they only give you half of their productivity. When they don’t know what the business is doing, they come in and do their “j-o-b” with no desire to grow or learn more.”

We have two incredible interviews on the show today!

These leaders have called in with questions every entrepreneur and leader should be asking…

“I think my meetings suck.” We tackle this statement and what to do about it….

Here’s a taste of what we talk about:

  • Where your time must be focused as an entrepreneur
  • How to increase your team’s productivity
  • The 5 steps to becoming a stronger leader
  • What your meetings should look like
  • How to re-energize your business
  • How to increase the loyalty of your team
  • Keeping momentum in your business

Our second guest asks,

“How do I re-invest myself after working for a leader who tarnished my reputation and then was eventually let go?”

We dive into:

  • The best mindset in business
  • What’s holding you back from being a stronger leader
  • Recovering from setting unreasonable goals for the team, micromanaging
  • How to turn a conflict situation into a growth experience
  • How to set expectations for your team

One of THE most important things you can do for your business is to serve the daylights out of your team, and set them up for success.

I want to hear from you on this! Comment below with your questions, challenges, solutions, or stories.

Why Entrepreneurs Plateau in Their Business – Part 2

iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

subscribe-itunes-button

Welcome to the show, Nevin! He was our first podcast live call in Q&A guest! We brought Nevin back on to dive even deeper and get really practical…

If you have questions that you want answered, solutions you need, things that are holding you back… Let’s talk! I will give you the best solution I possibly can. It’s really easy. Get on the schedule here.

TODAY we are diving deeper into why entrepreneurs plateau in their business, why Nevin plateaued. 

While there are common generational and external influences for many folks…this is truly a personal discovery process. Nevin and I unpack what this process looks like, here’s what we walk through together:

  • Recovering from the endless cycle of people pleasing
  • The universal “empty” feeling, and where it comes from
  • How to get self-worth from God
  • The right and wrong places to gain self-worth

This is so important…

Worth from people lasts about five minutes. Trying to make yourself feel good by making others happy also lasts about five minutes. How do you get that happiness from somewhere else? We’ve been trained. We’re programmed to think,

“If I don’t take care of them in their struggles, I’m not a caring person, I’m a bad person. Or…it’s the right thing to do.”

We have this unhealthy mindset:

My worth tanks if I’m not constantly making someone else feel better or better about themselves.

You have got to get yourself out of this place! Where should self-worth come from?

I believe your greatest worth, period, is the act of love that happened with the cross.

What is Really Holding You Back?

“All I got to do is work hard and then everything’s going to show up, right? Then it doesn’t.”

Be honest…how many “life hacks” are you trying implement this week? How many lists, habits and resources do you invest in monthly?

Timeout. 

There are plenty of tools out there to fix “the problem” or increase your productivity. But before you invest in a solution, ask yourself…

  • Do I really know what’s holding me back?
  • Do I have correct perspective, not just people’s advice and opinions?
  • Why am I responding the way I am?
  • Am I looking at my business and life the right way?

5 Strategies the Strongest Decision Makers Use Every Day

iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

Subscribe in iTunes

“Many people, and you see this a lot with the younger folks, have not been trained to think for themselves. Listen! I’m calling out my own generation too.”

We are launching a live Q&A show!! You get to call in and have a conversation with me, so if you have questions that you want answered, solutions you need, things that are holding you back… Let’s talk! I will give you the best solution I possibly can. It’s really easy. Get on the schedule here.

TODAY we are talking about surface level decision making.

This is something that I see a lot of people doing…and it absolutely holds people back in their growth. We have not been trained how to make good decisions! Because of this, we end up with what I call surface level decision making.

Definition: Making a decision on the first thing you see, taking information from what’s right in front of you, and not digging any deeper.

Becoming a strong decision maker… requires #mindset change.

Here are the five of the strategies we cover on the show:

  • How to solve the problem” with persepctive
  • Mindset: digging in when decisions are complicated, impossible and painful
  • The right way to research: taxing the collective intelligence
  • Spending time in prayer
  • Writing it down!

If you want to be on the show and have your question answered by me, it’s easy to do now. Get on the schedule here.

Why Entrepreneurs Plateau in Their Business

iTunes Stitcher Radio SoundCloud

There’s something that we are going to be doing more of, and that’s because you guys said you loved it.

We did a live call-in show a few episodes back and had phenomenal responses to that. #welistened

We’re going to start doing some of the shows as call-in! We will walk through whatever questions you’ve got. Get on the schedule here.

#ASKCHRIS is back! 

On today’s show, we’re tackling two killer questions from our podcast listeners. Here’s a taste of what we talk about:

  1. Why entrepreneurs plateau in their business + life and what to do about it
  2. Tackling negative management and creating culture as a team member

We dive into…

The ultimate goal is not for you to just focus on you. The ultimate goal is for you to also help and serve people as well in this process.

From Next-Level Leadership Live Event 2016: Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Masterminds and Behind the Scenes

Chris speaking centered from back

Day Two of Next-Level Leadership Live Event started with incredible energy.

David Branch Audience profile

One of the day’s highlights was hearing from the Next-Level Mastermind Coaching clients. Mastermind Coaching group members joined Chris on stage and talked about what it’s actually like to be a part of this team and accountability group. The Mastermind team opened up about the huge impacts of Next-Level Life, StratPlan and Mastermind Coaching groups in their personal lives and businesses.

The BEST part of Q&A was during a story told by one of the Mastermind panel members on enforcing culture and how they resolved an ongoing sticky situation with a client. To best explain how they solved the problem and brought strong communication and productivity back to their office, they said…

 “We LoCurto’d him, yes you’re a verb in our office.”

Laughter erupted and continued as another panel member agreed,

“…you guys LoCurto’d the heck out of him.”

Mastermind Q&A

The Next-Level Mastermind Coaching panel was powerful. Attendees took notes and began submitting their applications to join a team to see the same results and drastic change in their lives and businesses.

…You might be reading this and realize you missed the event. You still have a window to learn about the Next-Level Mastermind!

Not sure?

Let’s walk through it…

  • You would love to freely access the wisdom of successful entrepreneurs and leaders to gain practical, experienced-based advice on how to grow your revenue without reinventing your entire business.
  • You haven’t established a reliable, consistent community of like-minded peers to bounce ideas off of and gain wisdom from… people who “get it” when it comes to leading and growing a business.
  • You are not at peace with how much time you spend working versus time with your family or doing things you enjoying life.
  • You know what the problems are in your business, but you’re not sure how to fix them.
  • You’ve hit a plateau in your leadership or business growth and don’t know how to get over it…

if you mentally checked yes to any of these… The answer is you need more infoYES, SEND ME MORE INFO!

 We would LOVE for you to be a part of what we do, and gain access to:

  • Quarterly 1 1/2 Day In-Person Retreats

 

 

  • Exclusive Next-Level Mastermind Member Accountability Group calls

 

 

  • Unlimited Access to Chris’ Head Client Coach

Rabbi Daniel Lapin

We had the honor of having Rabbi Daniel Lapin speak to the attendees, and to us.

As Rabbi Lapin shared his wisdom and principles, heads nodded and verbal agreements echoed across the room (in the audience and at the Chris LoCurto team table in the back). We extended the Q&A because the entrepreneurs and leaders could not. get. enough.

Rabbi Lapin empowered us all with content on integrity and virtue in business, ancient jewish wisdom on finance, the reward of specialization and perspective on CEOs and finance in our culture today.

Business encourages virtue. How? By your consistency. That’s called reputation: people rely on your credibility. If that changed…you would not be in business for long at all. Integrity really matters.

To get a behind the scenes look at the empowering, game-changing event that was Next-Level Leadership Live Event 2016, here are some highlights of what our attendees saw and had to say:
