You must always meet minimum reguirements in order to be accepted into a group.
The more distinguished a group is, the higher the minimum requirements.
Meeting minimum requirements should come first before seeking an admission to a group. So, have you met the minimum requirements for the group you are seeking an admission to?
Success in life is not achieved by wishful thinking. It is achieved by understanding what need must be satisfied, when it must be satisfied and how it must be satisfied for it to be accepted as having met the minimum requirements to be called, ‘satisfaction’.
Therefore before you ask to be moved up, you must give what is more than the maximum required at where you are but it’s the minimum required to be accepted into the next higher group.
