The Next Level Life Blog

Bill Hargenrader the Next Level Life

What is the next level life?

Like most people, I have had many ups and downs in my life, many failures and many successes. Through it all, there is one belief that has served me well; the belief that we all have the ability within ourselves by using our thoughts and actions, along with the right strategies, to truly transform our lives. The ability to take our life to the next level despite our current circumstances.

I got my first taste of this truth at the age of 8 when I spent 3 years in a mental institution for a crime I did not commit. This (unknowingly at the time) set me on a lifelong quest of learning and discovery to figure out what the best tools were for us to truly change our lives. The Next Level Life is the culmination of those experiences.

The Next Level Life is many things to many people. For some it is getting yourself out of a hole that was dug for you by circumstance, or by your own actions. For others it is aspiring to live a life at the next level, with more meaning, passion, purpose, and freedom. For others it is advancing the aims and progress of humanity, actively improving the quality of living for our brothers and sisters, and raising the consciousness of the collective human identity of the planet.

And for some it is a combination of all these elements. 

Maybe you feel an uneasy stirring. A whisper in your thoughts. You might be fed up with how life turned out, or maybe you are successful but know you can do better. Not just better as in more efficient and productive, but better as in you know there is more to life than this, that you can do more, be more, and go to bed proud of the person you were today because your actions this day meant something more than just checking the box or advancing someone else’s agenda.

Living the Next Level Life is standing up and saying I’m tired of mediocrity, the status quo, the self-sabotage, and deciding to do something about it. I will model those who have come before me who have gotten themselves to the next level in life and business, and I realize that in order to get to the next level, I need to live my life at the next level right now.

My intention with this blog is to do my part, to contribute my knowledge, experience, tools, and relationships to show how you can live the Next Level Life. In doing so you not only improve your own life, but give permission to others to do the same for themselves.

I’ll post more on my experiences in the mental institution in another blog,  but for now leave a comment below letting me know what the Next Level Life means to you.

And remember, if you want to change the world, you have to start by changing your world.

    your story is life changing in so many ways. I can’t wait for you to share the rest of it so that others may benefit as much as I have from it. Carry on brother, carry on.

    • Thanks for the kind words Kip! Carry on I shall! It’s all about helping each other get to the next level. Through helping others we help ourselves =)

  2. For me the next level is when you fell who you are, from where are you from and where you want to go, is when you feel the life in the ethernal instant of criations. Is when you have one unique rule do everething you want without hurt someone even if that someone is yourself. When you understand that have no differnce between you, the others and the “torus ecosistems” that where we are and not “egosistems”. We are all peaces of one big engenie of harmony flows. So that’s it for me. I like a lot your text… it flows with my belives thinkings. tks for share.

    • Thank you for sharing! There are a number of universal truths that transcend boundaries of culture, language, and geographic location. Recognizing this not only helps for us to achieve more individually, but also enables raising the consciousness on a global scale to the next level as well. =)

  3. Hi Bill! New to your site, I found you as you followed me on Twitter, reading this has really peaked my interest. I have had trials and tribulations with obesity which doesn’t compare to your story but it has set me on a path of helping people. I’m looking forward to read more about your life, I find connecting with others who have amazing stories inspiring! Keep doing what you are doing! The world needs more brave people like yourself helping others 🙂
