What if one day you were minding your own businesswhen someone tapped you on the shoulder and said,

"Excuse me, your life is waiting. It's right overthere and in it you have all that you ever desired.You have financial freedom, the job of your dreamsor the business you always wanted. All of your relationships are strong, loving and beneficial.You are strong, sure of yourself and happier thanyou've ever dared to imagine."

You might say, "Show me the way!" and the personwould, but of course there is a price...

You would need to leave behind all of your fears, jealousies, thoughts of separateness, anxieties,anger, frustrations, limiting beliefs. Could you do it? Could you shed all of these and walk toward what you say you REALLY want?

Now, if you are reading this article, clearly you are the one doing the tapping and deep down you know exactly what you need to do to get from here to there.

So why aren't you doing it? Start by asking yourself how you are feeling. That's right, how are you feeling?

All the feelings in the world roll up to just two, youeither feel good or you feel bad. There really is noin between because the absence of good is bad andthe absence of bad is good.

When was the last time you came up with a solution to a problem when you were feeling scared or frustrated?When you are feeling these things your thoughts are locked on the fear, not the potential solution.

So how can you expect to create the life you want if you are constantly having thoughts that serve andmaintain your fears?

There are 4 steps you can follow that will break you outof the fear and into the possibility of having thelife experience you really want.

Step One
Know What You Don't Want

Part of the reason we are fearful is because we are notclear on what it is that we really want. Crazy as it sounds, for a lot of us, it is much easier to come up with what we don't want than what we do want. Take a fewminutes and jot down, in list format, what you reallydon't want.

Step Two
Know What You Do Want

Take your don't wants and simply flip them into do wants.For example, "I don't want to travel so much for work" becomes "I only want to travel once a month for work."As you go through your list, notice how you are startingto feel better and be more hopeful.

Step Three
Get Into the "Feeling" Place of Your Want

Now that you have started to shift your attention awayfrom what you don't want onto what you do want, you can'thelp but feel better. Now you want to take that feeling and expand it. Phrase your do want in the present, as though you already have it...

"I am traveling once a month for work now. I love havingthis extra time to spend with my family. I am much more involved in my kid's lives and it feels good to know that I am contributing more around the house. My customers are even more satisfied because now I meet with them weekly by phone in addition to my monthly visit. I am very pleased with these results and we still get miles for our trips to Disney World!"

Step Four
Allow It To Happen

The first thing we do, when we get clear on what it is we really want, is try to make it happen as soon as possible.This step is all about allowing, not forcing your desireto happen. You have already started doing this by takingyour attention off of what you don't want which alreadyhas started to allow thoughts and ideas on how to make ithappen.

When you force, you are in fear mode and remember what we said, not living in fear is part of the price you pay for having what you want. The best indication that you are headed in the right direction is again how you feel. If it feels good, go for it! If it feels bad, avoid it!

So there you have it, the key to having what you wantin life. Are you ready to use it?
