The first step in getting anything we want is first deciding what exactly it is that we actually want.
“That’s so silly.”
“What are you even talking about?”
“I know exactly what I want.”
Do you though? Are you sure?
Have you actually DECIDED what exactly you want? We often want so many things …
A raise at the job
A new job altogether
More time (to travel, relax, do more, etc.)
Learn to meditate
Learn to salsa
Become fluent in a new language
etc. etc. etc.
How many items do we have on our list of things we want??? It’s no wonder we never get any of them.
Maybe if we DECIDE … with precision and clarity, on what it is we really want … we have a chance of actually getting it.
Maybe if we narrow down our list of wants to the one thing we truly desire and make a plan to get that ONE thing, maybe we have a chance of actually getting it.
Maybe, just maybe, all we have ever had to do is … DECIDE.
