The Four Levels of the Mind

On this episode, Rob explores an important thesis with respect to the mind. Our entire existence is both experienced and controlled by the mind. And he believes that the mind operates on 4 different levels, which determine our experience in the world. The present state of your mind on this spectrum affects your decision making, your reaction to outside stimuli, your discipline, and many other factors. Level 1 - The Reactive Mind: The state of only dealing with what comes at you, trying to get through the day. Not making any substantial progress, but treading water, as not to fall behind. This state zaps your energy the fastest with little to show for it but survival. Level 2 - The Aware Mind: You at least have an idea of what you need to do in order to be proactive and move your life and goals forward, but taking action is still hit or miss. Level 3 - The Proactive Mind: You are actually doing the things you need to do to push your goals forward. Pushing through in a deliberate way to achieve your goals. The work is hard, but it delivers results. Level 4 - The Magnetic Mind: The holy grail of mind states. The answers are being drawn right to you, and the execution feels effortless. Maintaining this elusive mind state allows you to evolve your existence on a significantly higher level.
