Increase Awareness With One Simple Question
There are many ways we can increase our own personal
awareness about our life and what we want to make out of it.
Yet, we seldom ask the question, "Why am I doing this?" By
consciously becoming more aware of what we do and why, we
can then make phenomenal changes. Usually in leaps and
bounds. This includes losing weight, being happier, working
in a job we love, and all the rest of the things that most
of us chase.
Here are four easy ways you can begin increasing your own
personal awareness. These methods are around you all day
long and you will not need to do anything different except
slow down and ask the question. Further down I'll explain
1. Listen to others communicate. It is easier for us to
name what we don't want than what we do want. Since this is
the case, by listening to others converse, we can then
decide what we don't want. What language we don't want to
use. What beliefs we don't want to have. What...etc. we
don't want to have. It is important to not stop there if
you are finding your awareness through the don't door. If
you are not coming through that door but instead enter through the
?I want? door then by listening to others communicate, you
can decide what you do want in your life. Listen to others
-- what they say and how they say it. Take notes on what you
agree with and disagree with, or even the neutral line --
what you aren't sure about.
2. Read a variety of publications. We read all the time,
yet what is our awareness from what we've read. If you read
before bed time in a tired numb state it?s difficult to be
aware of anything. Do you read only work material that is
dry and boring? Do you only read science fiction or some
other particular genre? What does this type of reading help
you become more aware of in your life?
3. Listen to radio and television talk shows. By listening
to others' communication we learn to formulate our own
opinions, understand our own awareness in the world, in our
own life, and what we want and don't want. You don't always
need to agree, in fact, by disagreeing with the speaker
you're awareness is even more heightened.
4. News. Listening to the news or reading the news can
increase your awareness about the world, your community, and
other people?s opinions. This results in an increased
awareness of what you want and don't want.
Probably by now you have guessed why it?s important to want
to increase your awareness. If we live in a vacuum then the
air inside us and all around us gets stale. Eventually
there isn't any air left and we die from the toxicity of our
own breath. Awareness stimulates us into knowing and
understanding ourselves at levels we could never do on our
own. But it can only do so if we ask the question, "What
new awareness are we taking away from this?" Yet, we must
also listen and hear the answer. When was the last time
you asked the question?
