In order to transform our life and begin living the life of our dreams, we must know and work with certain laws of life. One of these is the law of awareness, in order to grow yourself, you have to first know yourself.
Many people will have a general idea that they would like to improve their situation… that they want more in life, but that is not specific enough. It would be as if I said: “I want to go to the beach”.
I live in North Carolina, so I have many choices along the coastline. I can choose to go to Virginia Beach, Virginia. I could choose to go to the Outer Banks in North Carolina I could choose to go to Wilmington, Morehead City, or Atlantic Beach. I could choose to go to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I could choose to go to Charleston. I could choose to go to Savannah, Georgia.
I have to be specific, as far as where I want to go. Also have to know where I’m starting from. In fact, if you’ve ever used Google Maps or something similar you know it asks you for the destination that you’re looking for and also asks you where you are now.
We have to know where we’re starting from and where we’re going in order to have an accurate map of how to get there.
Life is similar to that too. It’s not enough just to have a general idea that you want your life to get better. You have to be able to define what that looks like. What is a better life? What is more money? What is a better job? What does that look like in specific detail?
And where are you right now, where are you in your finances, where are you in your job, what are your responsibilities?
In order to map out the course that will get you where you want to go, you have to know exactly where you’re going, as well as where you’re starting from.
When it comes to where we want to go, people tend to fall into one of three categories. Either they are the people who have no clue as to what they want; or they are those who know what they want, but they’re not making any effort to get to that and so living a very frustrated life. And then there are those who know exactly what they want to do, and they are living that life.
So let me ask you today:Where are you in the scheme of things and do you know where you want to go? Are you making progress in your journey towards that end in mind? Are you still trying to figure out what it is you want and where you are or are you living the life of your dreams already?
We will be looking at some of the key questions we need to ask ourselves over the next several days, and I hope that you will stay with us as we examine these in more detail the law of Awareness
