Sure, but, for someone who obviously has the ability to beat that level and the knowledge and confidence to know and believe you can, its easy to say that. it's different to someone taking a shot.
Also @OP how many tables do you play at once on 10NL? You say you're 2 tabling 25nl but if you can 6 table 10NL, seems more profitable to me in terms of a $/hour number.
Finally, in my experience, setting a goal of say 30/50/100 BIs or whatever it is for you to move up AND getting there truly makes me feel like I've achieved something and gives me the confidence to go and crush the next limit (Usually fails). I also think playing less tables and nitting up or changing your game to a lower variance version isn't going to bring solid results. If you make say 30BIs for 25NL then I think you can move up more confidently, play better and win more. Nitting up because you're scared to lose BIs isn't going to help you at all.
It's probably pointless me typing this out, because usually when someone comes and asks if they may move up, it's simply them looking for any reason why they should because they want to. Ask yourself why you want to and what you hope to achieve.
