Look Around You...
You've got resources spread out everywhere.
The problem is that when we are constantly stimulated by something we end up attenuating and creating situational blindness.
It's the reason that facebook ads seemingly disappear after a while and suddenly reappear months later.
Your mind has gotten used to their newsfeed, and the ads disappear until they create a tweak in the algorithm that changes everything.
And boom there's the ad.
Situational blindness happens for a lot more than just advertising though.
Most likely it can be seen in your life preventing you from seeing all the fantastic resources around you.
What Are These "Resources"
Before I plead with you to start utilizing your resources, you need to understand what they are.
A powerful high leverage skill (HLS) is to be able to see and execute on your resources.
And they are everywhere around you.
Here's a quick list that may have slipped your mind:
- Family and Friends connections
- Linkedin, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter friends.
- The Items in your room
- Free facilities and networking at a college or your job
- Parks (for exercise)
- and so much more.
We need to get past thinking that our resources only are what is in our immediate eyesight because often the list above gets missed so often.
Being accustomed to whats around you isn't necessarily a bad thing until you need to use those resources.
And heightened living entails seeing these resources.
Seeing the resources that surround you and utilizing them.
One of the best examples of this is the character McGyver because when everyone in the room has no idea what to do, he takes a paper clip and a piece of gum and saves the day.
The other characters always miss what's available.
And we will too unless we train that specific skill.
The skill that requires you to use your resources.
If you are starting a new business, your family can begin the viral component spreading it to people they know. Your friends or parents may have a buddy who can get you funding.
When you don't have the time or enough money to afford a gym membership, but want to lose weight, that park you pass every morning is a gym itself.
Build the skill of looking for your resources and then use them.
