Figuring Out What You Want to Be, Do, and Have is the Key to Getting It

In order to get what you want, you need to know with absolute clarity what it is that you want. Why do you do the things you do? You need to figure out how to get in alignment with who you want to be.

If you could do anything in the world, and accomplish whatever it is you set out to do, what would you do? Where would you live? Who do you want to be? What kind of dream life would you have? What would your perfect day look like?

I think that most people don’t dream or imagine enough. They settle for whatever happens to them and let things happen. If you ask people what they want and ask for specifics, not just vague answers they won’t know. They’ll say things like “Oh, I want more money or I want to travel. Or I want more free time.” How much money do you want? Where do you want to travel to and what would you like to see and how long do you want to stay there? How much free time do you want and what would you like to do with that free time? How do you plan on getting it? Do you plan to work less, switch to part time, or make more money doing something else?

What would you like to have for dinner? What do you want to eat or where do you want to eat at? Even that simple question, most people will take a long time to answer because they don’t know or don’t care or don’t have much of a preference or may be wishy washy about it. They say “whatever you want to have is fine or wherever you want to go or I can eat anything, I’m not picky.”

If someone asked me what I want for dinner, I’d say… I want lamb chops soaked in sauce and spices overnight and cooked just done with horse radish or a dash of dijon mustard on top, with some red skinned potatoes and green beans cooked with a bit of butter and salt. A side caesar salad and french onion soup. A glass of white wine. For desert I want a piece of Tiramisu to share with my date. And if they were going to bring me flowers, I’d tell them that I don’t want roses, get me a bunch of tulips instead.

So let me ask you this question again, do you know what you want? Can you tell me the details if I asked you? If you know all the details and if you have clarity, it’s much easier to get what you want. Visualize it and work towards it.
