5 Ways To Increase Your Awareness

Awareness plays a critical role in our daily lives. By increasing our awareness, we often better understand what is possible to achieve.

Awareness is defined in the dictionary as, "the state or condition of being aware; having knowledge; consciousness." Having knowledge and understanding how to apply it is powerful. As you learn more, you start to reform your beliefs, and in turn, your awareness increases.

Think about your life right now. Has there ever been a time where you were unaware of unique opportunities for yourself? Or has there been a time that you were completely unaware of how to do something? It can change your life when you become more knowledgeable in any area of life.

5 Ways To Increase Awareness:
  1. Know What You Are Looking For: Do you know what you truly want? Most people have no clue what they want because they do not take the time to write out goals. Without knowing what you are looking for, you will have no idea about how to increase your awareness in that area of life. For example, do you want to make more money? Write out the desired amount that you want to make and a deadline to make it happen. Once you know exactly what you want, use the next four keys to increase your awareness.
  2. Read More Books: Like the definition of awareness states, "having knowledge" is key to increasing your awareness. The best resource that you can use anytime, any place, and without help from others is books. Going back to the last example, if you want to make a desired amount of money, choose what you want to make money in. What is your passion? What do you love to do? From there, devour all the books you can on the subjects of money and your passion. Read books on inspiration people like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk. They all figured out how to make their passions into money making machines.
  3. Watch YouTube Videos: No, not funny cat videos. Watch videos on "how to" or information. There are a ton of great resources out there to teach you how to make money online, if that was your goal. You must start somewhere, so a serious of videos can help you increase your awareness on how to get started.
  4. Get A Mentor: Mentors are a perfect way to learn from the best people within your niche. Yes, sometimes you have to invest in a program to get one. But what a great way to launch a new business or career! I know it's hard when you have financial difficulties. If that's the case (which was mine at first), go back to step 3 and watch "free mentor videos." I watch a lot of Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor, and Les Brown. Why not, it's free teaching!
  5. Talk To Those You Know: One other great way to increase awareness is getting feedback from those around you. Has someone tried to do something you want to do? Is someone at your work smart in a particular area and has a high awareness of that field? Talking to people is a great way to learn what is successful in particular fields.
We should never take the resources in front of us for granted. Use everything you can to increase your awareness of your particular field and niche. What's possible for anyone, is possible for you!
