The Difference is Progressive Personal Consciousness Development
All there is, is choice. Everything is a natural consequence of choice.
The only difference is between people who allow external factors to influence their choices, and those who are conscious of this information, and commit to making their own choices based on their ever-expanding internal power – regardless of what others think.
There are people who allow external factors to influence their thinking, and thus become the reasons why they make certain choices.
The why portion of the equation is where they slip up.
Such people are the first to complain that things are never going their way, or how they just can’t get ahead. It’s always someone else’s fault. They refuse to take conscious responsibility, so their choices and results are naturally less than optimal. Since they insist that reality is all “out there”, they’re never in control.
It’s very hard to have control of your life when you believe such control is impossible to obtain in the first place. This is the state of learned helplessness.
Leave someone else in charge of the important choices, and you’ll suffer their consequences.
Then, there are those who are conscious of this behavior, realize how foolish and self-limiting it is, and commit to making their own choices – regardless of whether others approve or support.
Even when they aren’t getting results yet, they’ll still be taking action. These people consciously understand that the real battle is all in their own minds. Action is all that’s required to start getting results. These results may not be what you initially had in mind, but you’re completely free to keep taking action until your results start aligning with what you’re after.
This is an incredibly empowering mindset and attitude to hold toward life in general.
Conscious people understand that literally nothing can stop them…except for themselves.
In truth, however, living consciously isn’t easy. That’s precisely why so few people strive to do so.
Do you know what else isn’t easy? Getting knocked down over and over in life – especially while chasing goals that other people have convinced you are of importance, all while your true passion and fulfillment internally screams at you to “turn the ship around!” over and over and over again.
Don’t get discouraged or demotivated though. Paying attention to your choices, behaviors, and actions can indeed feel like a chore at first. In both the above circumstances, the escape rope is reminding yourself that you have freewill choice.
Life can get incredibly fun the more you commit to making conscious choices.
Creating this website and writing this article were conscious choices for me, and I’m having a blast! Embracing my passion of conveying concepts of consciousness, growth, and empowerment to others; I can’t see myself doing anything else!
Stop Looking For Permission!
The “secret” is to get past those unconscious stumbling blocks by allowing yourself to take action toward your highest excitement.
You don’t need a reason to do so.
Thinking you need a reason is precisely what your initial problem was.
We tend to fool ourselves into believing we need some sort of external “permission” to get started chasing our dreams.
