Hey Busy Bees!
Today I'm going to be talking about why you're not getting what you truly want in your life, career, business or relationships. This one is a biggie! You won't believe how simple the answer is, once I tell you.
Are you ready?
It's because you haven't DECIDED what you want.
Have you outlined your desires, dreams, goals, or simple wants? Have you written them down? Have you gotten clear on what you want your future, your finances, your relationships, or your dream home to look like?
If you don't even know what you want, how is the universe supposed to deliver it to you?
One thing I'm beginning to learn is that, it's okay to be selfish. It's okay to allow yourself to have that big vision for your life. And when you get clear on what it is that you want, you can create the reality that you want.
In Jack Canfield's book, Success Principles, he states that as a baby we know exactly what we want. When we're hungry, need a change of clothes, or want some love, we cry and scream! We were clear about what we wanted and we got it, immediately!
As we get older we learn things like, "stop being so selfish!" Or, "You can't have everything you want." This is why we end up feeling STUCK in our lives, and feel like we are in situations that aren't truly meant for us. Jack goes on to say, "We learned how to act and how to be to get their approval. As a result, we now do a lot of things we don't want to do but that please a lot of other people."
If you're wanting a change in your life, I challenge you to start being OKAY with wanting more from your life. You can start by making a list of 20 things you love to do. Or, you can make an "I WANT list!" I've personally done this, and I felt like a kid at Christmas again, being able to list all of the things I want.
To make an I want list:
-split your paper into 3 columns
-label them the following: 30 things you want to do, 30 things you want to have, 30 things you want to be before you die.
-List as many as you can think of and continue to add to your list. You will see that some wants will be little and not as profound as others. That's OKAY!
-Try to think about ALL aspects of your life from places you'd like to travel, your finances, your ideal job, your health and physical being, and the relationships in your life.
Lists like this will help you get clear on your vision, and allow you to get on track to goal setting and taking action steps towards a change you're craving in your life.
Jack Canfield says, just like the GPS in your car, once you get clear on what you want and where you want to go, success in life works the same way!
I hope this post speaks to you, and allows you to start thinking about what you truly want in your life. Grab a journal, or your laptop and make this list. You will see how fun it is to be OKAY with wanting MORE from your life.
