"Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us." - Stephen Covey
A Greek myth can help us understand the freedom that comes with power of choice.
In the Underworld, Sisyphus was condemned to roll a large stone up a hill from which it always rolled down again. Realistically, he was trapped in an endless cycle of rolling the stone. When he perceived himself to be imprisoned by the curse, he was a victim.
At one point, however, he turned the tables — he changed his mind and decided to CHOOSE to roll the stone up the hill. In doing so, he empowered himself and defused the curse.
"Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you."- Jean-Paul Sartre
"One cannot make a slave of a free person, for a free person is free even in a prison."- Plato

Levels of consciousness
"The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind." — William James
Here is one perspective on levels of consciousness and some descriptive words to help us identify the differences:
Not conscious - instinctual, follower
Subconscious - habitual, robotic, reactive
Conscious - aware, intelligent, conceptual, reflective
Superconscious - intuitive, guiding, truthful, loving, universal
Reflect on how you typically move through your day. As we use our minds more consciously, we open up to the superconsciousness.
"Utilizing your conscious mind to direct the subconscious mind to enter into communication and harmony with the universal mind is the secret of personal power." — Delfin Knowledge System

Isn’t it all just too hard?
Yes it is hard – but…. (and this might sound harsh) that’s life. We live in a world of billions of people, all striving to achieve. We live in a world surrounded by thousands of companies and businesses, each struggling to to succeed. Life is cluttered and congested – but it doesn’t (or shouldn’t) stop us. The key is to find a way forward that works for you.
New Blogs DO break onto the scene and ‘make it’ on a regular basis. Yes – they’re in the minority – but it is possible.
What sets them apart?
Of course there is no single thing that sets good blogs apart – in fact that’s the point – they usually have something about them that is unique.
How to Be Unique as a Blogger
Of course teaching someone to ‘be unique’ is a challenge. Uniqueness by definition isn’t something that I can really tell you how to be – your blogs uniqueness is something that needs to come from your own uniqueness as a person – at least to some extent.
Having said that – some of the ways that blogs tend to be unique and stand out from the crowd often start with:
