What Do You Really, Really, Really Want?

Written by ezines@senn-sational.com

Ifrepparttar 90s British pop sensation 'the Spice Girls' ever get remembered for anything, I hope it's for bringingrepparttar 141860 question 'now tell me what you want, what you really, really want?' torepparttar 141861 mass consciousness

Now you may laugh at this, but when you really, really think about it, is there a more important question you could ask yourself?

What is a want?

A want is a desire. Whether or not we get what we want is often based uponrepparttar 141862 strength of our desires.

I know many will probably argue with this statement, but in some strange way, there is a part of me that truly believes that we all get what we want. If you really had a burning desire to change your reality, you would do it, right? Well, I'd like to think so.

Now if you're convinced that it's time you actually started wanting more, then allow me to share three simple but powerful secrets.

1. Know what you want.

If ever there was a personal development concept that was worth grasping it's this one: know what you want. If you don't know what you want, do you really believe that you have any chance whatsoever of getting it?

The sad reality of life isrepparttar 141863 fact thatrepparttar 141864 majority of people in this world don't know what they want. Even sadder isrepparttar 141865 fact that this isrepparttar 141866 way most people prefer it.

If you aren't actively pursuing your own wants and desires, chances are that you will become a statistic of un-fulfilment. Always remember that your employer, government, financial institutions, family and peer groups will all be trying to shape your life according to their wants, not yours.

2. Ask for what you want.

Once you are clear about what it is you want, you've got to ask for it!

Can you imagine sitting in a restaurant, readingrepparttar 141867 menu, making your selection, but not tellingrepparttar 141868 waiter? What are your chances of getting a meal? Pretty slim!

What Were The Good Ole Days Good For?

Written by Sonny Julus

Can you remember much aboutrepparttar good ole days? Mayberepparttar 141859 first question should be: Do you think they really were "the good ole days"? I sure do remember those days and I believe there were many good things about them. Let me tell you why I feelrepparttar 141860 way I do about those days and see if you agree with me. Here are some valuable reasons to consider:

* Crime did not seem to be as rampant and violent.

Now maybe this was not always true where you grew up. But If you lived in small town America it probably was true. It did not dominaterepparttar 141861 daily news then and it was not as brutal either. There usually were not a large number of crimes in those days.

* You could go out at night without fear of being accosted.

I do not remember many incidents when especially women, had to be so fearful when going out in public then. When I think ofrepparttar 141862 neighborhood where I went in those days to pick up my date, I shudder today when I think of it. Because that area now is so crime infested. Not having an automobile in those days, I had to walk several blocks to her house when I got offrepparttar 141863 bus. When I left her house afterrepparttar 141864 date there was no fear to stand onrepparttar 141865 corner late at night to wait for a bus.

* Parents could discipline their children without fear of reprisal

Discipline in most cases then meant a simple word called " NO". And in most cases it was never challenged. If it was,repparttar 141866 next action was usually a "swat onrepparttar 141867 fanny" with a hand, yardstick, or a fly swatter. I do not hear of many parents using this method today, do you?

Sometimes just being told to "sit inrepparttar 141868 corner" or having a privilege taken away from you was enough to remedyrepparttar 141869 problem. Now, do not misunderstand me, I sure do not condone any kind of violence to discipline a child. But swatting a kid onrepparttar 141870 backside with a fly swatter or a yardstick, is that a violent act? Some may think so today. I will not say there were some parents guilty of violent discipline back then but generally that was notrepparttar 141871 case.

* Mothers were more likely to stay home raising children than working

Most mothers then feltrepparttar 141872 responsibility to stay home, at least when children were at an early age. Generally there was not as much of a need for them to earn a second income forrepparttar 141873 family as it is now. If there was a reason they usually found a way to do that while still staying at home. (Taking in washing was common then) My mom worked inrepparttar 141874 family florist business in later years. This was generally during some ofrepparttar 141875 major holidays. But by then my sister and I were old enough to be there, too.
