The Seven Levels of Awareness
 What can you do to become more aware, work at your full potential and realize your goals? What willallow you to choose positive thoughts even in gloomy situations? It is your level of awareness. There areseven levels of awareness (listed from low to high):1.Animal2.Mass3.Aspiration4.Individual5.Discipline6.Experience7.MasteryAll of us will primarily function at one of the above levels. According to where we are in our lives at anygiven time, we may bounce back and forth between levels. We should strive to reach the highest level,mastery, where the air is thin and the ideas are great.As you read the description of each level below, determine which level of awareness you are operatingat in the following key areas:
Spiritual
Love relationships
Money
Personal/Professional
Health
Level 1: Animal
This is the “fight or flight” syndrome. A person at this level is doing just enough to get by. They arevictims of circumstances. This person is REACTING to whatever is going on around them rather thanresponding. They allow what is going on in their current circumstances to dictate how they react.To react or respond is a choice. Reacting is a negative choice and responding is a positive choice.Reacting implies that we have given charge of the situation to someone or something else. We surrender our input and any control in the matter. We are now at the mercy of the situation and are forced to bein reaction mode where we are constantly dodging bullets and expending great amounts of energy justto stay afloat. We do not anticipate that which is to come because we are too busy handling thepresent when we are reacting. The future then surprises us and the whole mess begins again. They areprobably reacting using alcohol, drugs or other negative expressions.Responding to a situation is a positive choice. It is proactive and anticipates those things to come.Responding is preceded by thought. In responding, we take charge and have command over how thesituation affects us. We also have control over how it affects us internally
Level 2: Mass
 
This is where you are programmed to conform. A person at this level is following the crowd rather thandoing their own thinking. This person does not consciously choose the things that they want. They askothers what they think they should do with their money.If you MUST follow others, follow the one or two folks that are doing things differently than the masses. Itis a good chance that they have put some thought into what they are doing. Most people do not think.George Bernard Shaw said that two percent of people think, 3 percent of people think that they arethinking and 95 percent of people would rather die than think! It is not a coincidence that 1% of theworld’s population earns over 90% of the money being made. Break out of the “mass” level ofconsciousness and claim the life you deserve!Successful people do not follow the masses. They are independent thinkers. If you wish to achievesuccess, realize that it is not an easy path to follow. You will face ridicule from strangers, family andfriends. Remember that your first responsibility is to be true to yourself and do whatever fulfils you andmakes you happy. Bob Proctor states “The masses are obsessed with conformity rather than creativity.”
Level 3: Aspiration
This is where you are beginning to wake up. You now want to break away from the masses andbecome an individual. You realize that you can be more, do more and have more than your currentcircumstances. You saw
The Secret 
. You listen to dynamic speakers such as Bob Proctor, Paul Martinelli,and Mary Morrissey. You read
Think and Grow Rich 
and
As a Man Thinketh 
. You know that there issomething more that you are capable of.Many people become stuck at this level because their new desires are just wishes until they back themwith action. You may desire to earn more money. Desire is derived from the Latin word da–sire, whichmeans, “to give birth to“.
“The desire for riches is simply the capacity for larger life seeking fulfillment; every desire is the effort of an unexpressed possibility to come into action. It is power seeking to manifest which causes desire. That which makes you want more money is the same as that which makes the plant grow; it is Life, seeking fuller expression.” – Wallace D. Wattles 
.
A person earning $25,000 per year is not earning that because he wants to. He desires to earn far more than that. However, when this person is presented with the idea of earning $100,000 per year,he will reject the idea. Now why would he reject the idea? Because that idea is far beyond what he iscurrently getting in his life. He thinks that he cannot earn more.Decide to believe in yourself. Take charge of your own self-concept and beliefs. With enough positiveself-talk and positive visualization combined with the proper training, coaching, and practice, anyonecan learn to do almost anything. You must choose to believe that you can do
anything
you set your mind to. You can–it is a fact!
Level 4: Individual
 You begin to express your uniqueness through your actions…you are out of your head and into your uniqueness. You realize that there is no one like you. Only you possess your special gifts and talents.You move into action because you have the faith to move toward your desires.
 
If we can think it, we can do it. Keep your mind only on the things you desire. If you focus on what youwant rather than what you do not want, you will know when it is time to move into action. Your actionwill be effortless. Doors will open and the entire universe will conspire to assist you with your desire.You begin to dream. Once you step into the action, everything that you are seeking is also seeking you.Remember, there is no attraction without the action. For every action there is an equal and oppositereaction. You begin to live on purpose. Your goals begin to manifest.You leave your comfort zone because you realize that this is necessary for change to take place. Allgrowth takes places outside the comfort zone. The language of someone in the comfort zone is “I likethings just the way they are“ or “better to be safe than sorry“.The sad thing is that when someone reverts to the comfort zone, they think that they are going back tothe way things were. But that is not true. They are not going to back to the way things were. We live ina changing universe. When someone says, “I can’t wait for things to go back to normal” they areannouncing their ignorance of the first two Laws of Creation which are order or movement. They are notgoing back to the way things were because the most basic and dynamic laws of life tells us thateverything creates or disintegrates and if there has not been growth in the comfort zone, by law, it hasto be going in the opposite direction. You are moving in one direction–improving the quality of your life–or you are taking away from it. You are not taking a step back to where it was. You are just takinga step back!Abraham Maslo said that either we advance forward in the direction of our dreams or we revertbackwards into safety.
Level 5: Discipline
By discipline, I mean the ability to give ourselves a command and follow through on it regardless ofwhat is happening. This means to stay on course regardless of what the masses are doing and/or saying.When we attend a concert or an opera and we listen to a voice that utterly captivates the audience, dowe wonder how those voices happen? Of course, they do not just happen. Although they may beespecially gifted people, those magical moments that happen are coming from discipline–not chance or accident. They consciously chose, ardently desired and patiently persisted in discipline.Are you willing to devote yourself to do anything necessary to make the goals and dreams you havebecome a reality?Are you able to become disciplined enough to see that what you need to do to make your desiresmanifest is to be totally focused on the result from the beginning of any task?Will you work through any challenge that may come and turn it into an opportunity for growth andtransformation as you build your success character?When you are devoted to being disciplined in all areas of your life, amazing things will happen. Beingdisciplined is
 
a way of being that allows for abundant thinking so that when a limited belief pops up,you can see it for what it is and move through it with a conviction and determination that will bring youcloser and closer to the results you want in any area of your life. Be disciplined about who you are andwatch as the flood gates of infinite opportunity shower you with unlimited success.
