Even further, you've faced those times when you actually got what you wanted, only to discover it wasn't as great as you expected.
You end up just accepting and tolerating whatever life throws you, whether in form of your career, your mate, your income, your living environment, etc.
Then, of course, in our state of "tolerating life," more we focus upon what we don't want, more of it we experience.
In words of fitness guru Susan Powter...
"What do I want?" Begin using these 4 words each day. As Stephen Covey says, "write it down, asterisk it, underline it." If you ask it, answers will come. Keep asking until answers do come.
See, you will always get something, even if it's only more of same. My good friend and fellow Coach, Bryden Manning talks about "Christmas morning relationships."
As a child, when you awoke Christmas morning, you knew you'd have stuff under tree. But if you didn't make a list of what you wanted, there's no telling what you'd get.
It works same with every area of your life. Every day is Christmas morning. You'll always get something. Have you made your list yet?
"What do I want?" Just say it outloud with me.
If you have a hard time with this question, consider taking a class or work with a coach. It's too important a question to ignore any longer. It's your life, after all.
Start today. Say it..."what do I want?"
To extent you get clear on answer to this question, to that same extent can you focus your attention on it and make it your intention to create it.
I'll leave you with simple and direct words of Walt Whitman, who said "claim your own at any hazard."
It's your life! Make it great.
