It seems so obvious right, to get the things you want out of life you need to know what you want. Most people don’t even know what they want, so how are they meant to get it if they aren’t clear on what it even is they want.
I’m asking you to think about what you want to do, what you want to be and what do you want to have?
Too often I hear ‘I should’, ‘ I was told I’d better’ and we end up dismissing our true desires. It stems from childhood when people put in boundaries for example:
- Don’t touch that
- Stop shouting
- You don’t really want that
- Try this instead
Too many of us have stayed stuck trying to figure out what other people wanted for us and not really what we want.
- Get married to please the mother
- Go to university because dad wanted it
- Get a ‘real job’ instead of pursuing the dream
Not being clear about what you want and making other peoples needs and desires more important than yours is simply a habit. Habits can be changed.
Try writing a list of things you want. You will start writing the material things you want, the places you want to visit but give it time and as the list goes on the more meaningful things come out. What us humans really want is fulfilment, to be making a difference, to be healthy and loved.
A career as a Personal Stylist is super fulfilling and I hope that it is something you are passionate about. Too many people feel like it’s impossible to make a living out of things they love doing. Well I’m here to tell you that if you love making a difference, shopping, clothes and talking to people then you can make a lot of money doing what you love in this field!
The process of getting what you want is like a GPS technology in the car or phone. For the system to work it needs to know where you are and where you want to go. The navigation system plots a perfect course for you and all you have to do is follow the instructions. Success in life works the same way. Once you are super clear about what you want and keep your mind constantly focused on it, the how will keep showing up. Keep your vision clear and through affirmations, goal setting and visualisation you will start to notice you are getting closer to your dreams. I will be posting out some tools you can use around this topic to help you with all of this. What I can’t do though is tell you what you want, only you can decide that.
If you don’t already know what you want then I challenge you to stop drifting and have a think about what YOU really want. Write down:
- How does your perfect week look
- How do you want to feel everyday
- What activities make you happy
- What do you want to see when you look at yourself in 5 years time
Life isn’t a dress rehearsal and you deserve to be happy. Just decide what it is that makes you passionate, excited and fulfilled, ignore anyone who tries to dim that shine of yours and lets get you to your dreams for 2017! It is all about baby steps and the first step in getting what you want is deciding what you want! Sooooo, tell me what you want, what you really, really want?
