“What are your mind mechanics?”
So many people in our world have such a hard time succeeding in what they aim to become in life. We all have heard the reasons as to why: I was born poor, I was born with a lack of adequate education in my environment, I am a minority, I am a woman, I have a different religious belief that is not what everyone else believes, or my sexual orientation. And you know what, we have and never will live in a utopia society. These are aspects of our daily lives that we have to overcome. But we also have another aspect of why we can’t succeed and that is a lack of self-awareness. And what do I mean by the lack of self-awareness?
I am referring to the skills and talents that we possess that sets us apart from each other. We’ve heard of the sayings, “Everyone is special in their own way.” Now that I am an adult I feel this is true more than ever. But how come so many people can’t tap into the inner skill they possess. This doesn’t matter your education, economic situation, ethnicity, religion, or gender. This is that inner thing that all people are endowed with in life. How does one get into the right mind-frame to attain hold of that gift? Because the human mind is very complex, yet the average human is not a complex person, but more of a simplistic person. It’s because with all the complexity that makes up the mind, so many people can’t harness it. Meaning, there are a series of, “Oh, that’s what that means.” These “ah ha” moments that create joins in the mind.
It sounds weird and sci-fi driven, but it is real. And the reason so many can’t connect, is because there is no self awareness. For example, people say, we need jobs. Then you ask them, “A job, doing what?” And they look at you and shrug their shoulders. A job is a broad ambiguous term, CEO is a job and flipping burgers is a job. What job title, what income, what employment package, what position after what time-frame? You need to be more direct instead of job and making good money. No one can define what good is, so asking me to provide you with a good paying job is a wrong way to go about attaining employment. Because I don’t know what is good for you, you do. So it is your job to say what you need a job doing what.
The reason this is so hard is because people don’t have a real discernible skill that makes them employable. Because you ask them, “What is your skill?” And they reply to you, “I don’t have one.” With no skill, what job can you get? You can’t get a job. Now some may be thinking, what about training programs? Well you can train people to do anything, but sustainability is on the basis of skill and talent, on top of the hard work. So, it is impossible to create a job among people with no skill or direction in what it is they want. Throwing money at something doesn’t help. You need to invest in people, but the people have to have something that is worth investing in that is sustainable with growth potential. Meaning, I am unemployed; someone says, “What do you do?” I reply, “I have my degree in Computer Science and I have intermediate experience with Java Script and CSS.” There is potential there. But someone who says, “I just need a good paying job.” There is no direction in what they want, because good paying job is not a real want.
All of what I have said comes from the ability to tap into the human mind that is you. In the end, if you are not able to harness how your mind works no one can help you in moving forward. It’s like dealing with a baby when trying to get people help. The baby cries and parents ask what’s wrong. The baby think you should know, but you are not that human. You can only guess what the baby needs. Only in society, you’re not dealing with a baby, it’s a fully grown adult. So you’re asked questions by adults who look at you and expect you to know their situation. Or they want you to feel their situation. Only problem is you have the issue, now what. You still need to tap into talent you or skill you. Without you understanding how your brain works to communicate what it is you need, no one will be able to assist you with anything in life. Because if you don’t know you, how will I assist you.
