“The new alpha male is an authentic male. Just be your true self and then work on the Next Level Human principles of power, presence, and warmth. If we want to do our job and make a difference in this world, that's how we need to be to connect with other humans.” – Dr. Jade Teta
If we're not here to help make a difference in this world, then why are we on this planet?

What makes one person who chases their passion find fulfillment while someone else is mored in regret. It is not luck, circumstance, access to money or who you know. It is also not about some esoteric new age idea like the law of attraction or the “universe has your back.” It comes down to awareness and mastery of 6 POWERS that every human can learn to master.
This mastery is what the Next Level Human practices every single day. What is a Next Level Human? Next Level Humans recognize there is nothing special or unique about their suffering. They know millions have endured the same hurt, pain and negative forces. What sets them apart is the ability to turn suffering into meaning and success for themselves and others.
Next Level Humans are masters of The Six POWERS: PERCEPTION: The ability to recognize distraction and delusion, become present and self-aware, and rewrite the rules and stories of your own experience.
OWNERSHIP: The ability to take radical responsibility for your life, declare who you are, and live your Honor Code.
WISDOM: The ability to diagnose ignorance, recognize bias and dogma… and humbly seek truth using logic and reason.
ENGAGEMENT: The ability to overcome indecision and apathy… and take conscious, definitive action.
RESOLVE: The ability to transcend fear… and rise after failure.
SHARING: The ability to use your signature strengths to better the world, without needing reciprocation or acknowledgment.
Human 365 challenges your thinking and guides you toward change, one day at a time. You will no longer “leap and let the net appear.” You will leap and weave the net as you fall. You will no longer “rise to the occasion.” You will create the occasion. You will no longer believe “everything happens for a reason.” Things will happen. And you will make a reason. With this awareness and self-mastery, you can rise, fully-fledged, into your power as a Next Level Human.

Next Level Human vs. Higher Level Human
“The title of Next Level Human was chosen rather than something like Higher Level Human for a very important reason. Higher-level says, “I'm better than you.” According to Alfred Adler, we shouldn't look for vertical hierarchies which put us above others but horizontal hierarchies. Most people think they're above others and they try to keep others down or maybe I'll bring you up to where I'm at or maybe you're above me and I want to reach to get to you. We should aim to be Next Level Humans because each of us has something uniquely beautiful to contribute on this planet and everybody has that no matter what domain they're in. There's no Higher Level Human, it's just the Next Level Human and we all have something that each and every single one of us can only contribute to humanity.” – Dr. Jade Teta
The Four Jobs Of Every Human
“When you are tapped into the Four Jobs of Every Human: Finances, Fitness & Health, Personal Relationships, and Purpose, you have a much easier time feeling happier, centered, and more fulfilled because you know that you've taken care of these basic things that every human has to do. Of course, each and every single one of us suffers in one or more of these areas at any one time and most of us are struggling with all four. There's nothing wrong with that but being a Next Level Human is about saying, ‘Okay, let me be aware of these four jobs, let me look and be honest about how well I'm doing with them, and let me grow and learn to get better at them because if I can't do my four jobs, I can't contribute my gifts fully to Team Human.' ” – Dr. Jade Teta
Owning Your Contribution To The World
“Where are you at on your journey to becoming a Next Level Human? There are things that you and only you can teach me and vice versa. You go out into the world, walk down the street, and you will meet people who are the only ones that can you teach you something that you could not possibly know without running into them. Each of us is contributing something to the world and having ownership of that contribution is one of the most important things we need to do as we mature as humans and that is the path of the Next Level Human.” – Dr. Jade Teta
