We wanted to share a little insight from our experiences. This will ultimately give you a deeper understanding of your own journey and will change everything if you are open to it.
If you have ever experienced obstacles in life (and who hasn’t) then you know that in order to overcome the obstacle successfully you need something different, a new approach or something else that will get you to your desired outcome.
This really boils down to having more awareness around a given problem or situation.
If you are trying to take a road trip from New Jersey to Miami, Florida and start out heading due North, then you simply are not aware of the direction you are headed. You are lacking awareness that Miami is actually due South.
No matter how hard you try, or how much positive thinking you have or how much money you throw at it... ultimately you won't be heading in the right direction for what you want to accomplish.
Awareness is the ONLY way things in your life or the world change.
If we don’t even know there is an issue, how can we even begin to tackle it?
“You can not change what you are not aware of.”
- Deepak Chopra
This goes for all obstacles. Think of a baby learning to walk and continuing to fall time and time again.
The baby for the first time is becoming aware of this thing we call “walking”. Babies have no concept of gravity, leg muscles, balance, coordination, good posture, focused attention etc...
He or she is building awareness in the world and with enough practice this new awareness leads to a new outcome. The baby eventually overcomes the obstacle and develops the ability walk on his or her own two feet!
Once the baby “gets it” it’s off to the races!!!
You have to be on high alert as this new awareness explodes into more awareness as the baby starts to explore more with a new found sense of the world.
It’s a whole new perspective!
Going from being on all fours to just two feet has changed everything and there is no going back!
This is how all change or growth happens.
Yet as adults, instead of continually making whole hearted and carefree attempts like the baby trying to walk, we often will take just a few attempts and decide we aren’t able.
