Awareness II Motivational Chamber Gem 1

Personally I am not a fan of old quotes which provide no meaning to the current changing times unless it's all about history repeating itself with the same case scenario. So I  was listening to some of Tai's talks and although he talks a lot and repeats everything a lot, today I became aware of the reasons. More over this quote that I just mentioned was said to him by one of his mentors during his real life moment. It completely captivated my brain and the way he backs up the thoughts associated with it, it's crystal clear that the thinking level of successful people is really different.
" There's a time to stop and smell roses but that time isn't now"
   
So we are going to talk about awareness today. To me it was just a word as an average person but WAIT! There's lot , lot more to it. Even at this instant you took the word 'awareness' casually as if reading a newspaper or novel. It show's how attentive you are but not how aware you are. Back to the point - you need to be aware of your surrounding, situation, the life that you brought on to yourself and current status of your life.



Let's make one thing really clear, you are how you are today because of what you chose and acted upon in life. It is not anyone's blessing or fault that you are in a fantastic moment or in trauma. This very sentence was said to me by one of my friend which I just said to your guys as well. She is epic but when she used to say that, it never made any sense to me because it was never relate-able to me in any way what-so-ever. So it was really annoying to get an advice which doesn't do any good. More over it felt like it was making the situation worse and it used to haha, she has a really bad way of getting her word across LOL. 
So just for you to imagine and understand this statement better I would like to take this example of Warren Buffet (If you don't know him then Google it buddy, you are not aware of the world. That's bad ;) )  In one of his TED talks he was asked by a student that - "How do you find motivation to do things?(productive) How do you define life?" so he cross questioned him - "Going back to your high school. Let's say there was a genie who would grant you one wish to choose one person from your class except you. And you would receive 10% of his lifetime income so if he earns 100 billions in a lifetime you get 10 billion there itself. If he earns nothing then you get 10% of nothing so who would you choose?"
  (Read till the end for the answer)
To be aware as a person is very important. Most common example would be - walking in to a room but not noticing those keys that you are searching for. You don't have to absorb everything practically because as per a science research that I am came across in one of the science shows is that - a human brain can store immense amount of data but that would be of ill effect so we tend to forget as the data fades off with time so in order to keep the data intact we need to brush our activities, skills, knowledge time to time. Same goes to form a habit. When you do something over and over again, it becomes a habit. Practically you can't absorb every single details but you can be practically aware of all the things. 
Let's take tai's example to put this across - You probably use your computer, laptop everyday. Have a look at the keyboard. What does the F5 do? What does Ctrl+W do? what does Alt+F4 do?(Lol don't press Alt + F4 now try it when you are done reading this blog post) You might say - "Why do I need to know all that? I am not a computer person." You don't have to be a computer person, you just need to be aware of it. It's just a basic competent upon that you must have seen it thousands of times. More over they are shortcut which you neglected. Which could have made your life easier but as you are not aware of it. That's were your incapability lies in. That's where all the opportunity lies in.

If you are not aware of the things you carry, you won't know how to use them wisely. If you are not aware then you are not aware of the things that you SHOULDN'T do instead of things you should do either. If you are aware of an intangible skill and prominence of an object you will be on another level where you can differentiate between a scam or an opportunity. You will be aware of what's walking into your life. So you will accept everything at your stake by being completely aware of its circumstances and not merely accepting it just as 'Accepting terms and conditions while creating a gmail account' because we all know that 99% people never read that. Bottom line is to stay in this moment, don't wander. Be aware, grab it if it's useful. If not then let it go. The more you become aware of your life and yourself, the better life is what awaits. It is really difficult to dig into this characteristic without examples -

They say "Good things come from good artists and great artists are born by stealing good things."  

It means that if you are aware of all the things that are relateable to you in whatever aspect that you want to be aware of then you need to be really equipped with that information. For instance if you want to improve your love life, all you need to do is, to be aware of your lover. What do they likes? what make's them happy? what does not make them happy? and so on. If you just keep your state of mind positive thinking that you will have a great love life without adding any efforts to it then there is no way that the forces will help you. Same goes with business, health etc.
Wanna be a successful entrepreneur? become aware of the ideas and club all the best ideas together to form your own formula and TADA! You just have your brand new original idea.

Now that you are completely aware of awareness as a motivational lesson today from motivational chamber. I can disclose you with the answer to warren buffet's question - "I would pick up the most aware person who is balanced in this entire class. It's not the good looking guy/girl, straight A's student or someone who does some other activities. It would be the one who is aware of everything in the present yet he is balanced even if he is not a straight A grade student" It simply means he can bet on that kid that he will do better than the rest. But notice how he said 'Balanced' it is really important to be balanced in all possible terms while being aware of surrounding. Because if you are not balanced then it wouldn't support the benefit's of being aware. So are you that kid who would be choose in the entire class? If yes, then perfect. If not, then you need to work on it. Don't back down.
If you want more friends you can be shy and stay at home. You need to be open and get out there to make some friends. You want to stay in shape? Then you need to go out there and work out instead of watching other work out pics on Instagram. If you want it then you need to DO IT!

Grasp as much as you can which will add up to life later on. Act now for a better future. Thanx for the read. Got any suggestions regarding topics to discuss? or style of writing? drop down a line. I will be more than happy to hear from you.

Adios!

  8. I agree, Your choice creates your future, so what are you choosing today? Also Awareness and Consciousness is already in you. There are so many metaphysical and holistic plus power of the mind methods all over. I personally find Access Consciousness (Accessconsciousness.com) empowers you to be in the knowing... Empowers you with questions and tools to know what you actually already know.
