Lets say that where a child is born is the "1st Street" of their life, their childhood neighbourhood, where they are raised. We want young people to aspire to leave 1st Street, and set goals to get past "2nd street", to get to "3rd Street" and beyond. We want them to set goats 'further than their eyes can see'.
Stop and pay attention to what is happening now. Acknowledge the reality without judgement. Escape the story to get closer to what is really going on.
Determine your true objectives.
Act out of awareness.
We are conditioned to respond without thinking. Thinking is hard work, and if possible the brain would rather save those resources. When you act out of awareness and not conditioning you are truly alive.
