"Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account." - Oscar Wilde

It's the beginning of the month, so what's the game plan and what will you do?

Resolve to eradicate self-limiting thoughts that lead to self-defeating behaviors.

This new way of living doesn’t eliminate issues, concerns or problems.

However, it does offer you creative and intelligent methods for dealing with obstacles that are really opportunities in disguise.

Resolutions are psychological tools that are intended to motivate oneself towards goals.

“I’m going to walk four miles a day Monday to Friday beginning next week October 5, 2020.”

This resolution is specific with a definite timeline.

Now, pulling this resolution off falls into level four and five of the seven levels of awareness.

Specifically, I am referring to level four where you express your uniqueness by declaring a specific resolution.

The next level is the time to pivot where you give yourself a command and actually follow through with it.

Procrastination can never enter this arena as this is reserved for the ones that have a very high level of awareness.

Here are the 7 levels.


1. ANIMAL React, fight, or flight

2. MASS Follow the masses, paradigms control us

3. ASPIRATION You desire something greater than your present circumstances

4. INDIVIDUAL You express your uniqueness

5. DISCIPLINE Give yourself a command and follow through

6. EXPERIENCE Your new actions change your results

7. MASTERY Respond; you think and plan

Without this awareness of these seven levels we are all reduced to an animal state of reactionary living.

Awareness provides us with opportunities where we no longer react but respond to present circumstances

With increased awareness, we get to see more and more of what is possible in our lifetime.

The white picket fences around our thinking and behavior vanish into thin air.

George Bernard Shaw said, “The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react.”

You’re on stage 24/7.

Being authentic and transparent allows you to attract everything that you want.

Ultimately, you become an incredible electromagnetic field.

Decision time!

React or respond?

Control or not in control?

The choice is yours.
