What do you want? No, I mean it. What is it that you truly want? Some people want fame, others would like good fortune. While you think about what it is that you truly want, here are a couple questions to think about as well. If I receive what I want, is it going to make me happy? Is it a necessity or a convenience?
Here’s a simple way to keep you grounded in your thought process. We know not to look to others to fulfill our own happiness. You have to be happy within yourself before you can look outward. When you consider things outside of yourself, this is what I call an outside source. An outside source is something that is not made up of you. When you seek anything from an outside source, the results may be temporary, leaving you only wanting more. The hunger is never craved because you seek to fill it continually from an outside source.
Let’s talk about intent. Intent is just as important as what you want. The intent defines the good that you want to come as a result of you acquiring what you want. A simple sentence will help clarify this. I want a better job so I can provide a better life for my family. Your desire and intent is laid out. The plan is already set in motion because you emphasized it with your intent.
Now, ask for help. Ask the universe, ask relatives, ask strangers. Throw it out for the world to hear. If you feel comfortable you can be more specific and add a specific time that you want this to happen, such as; now, in two months, by next year, etc. Next, be prepared to work for what you want. Make a plan and execute your plan of action. Make it happen! Remember, some things are in your control, others are not. If you want a new red car, say you get one, but you have to be in a position to maintain the payments, the upkeep and the insurance. This is taking responsibility for receiving what you want.
So, if you have an awesome body, in great health or very wealthy, are you guaranteed happiness? No, happiness is a feeling that comes from within. You might be happy for a while, but if your body is no longer awesome, your health starts to deteriorate or if you lose your wealth, you won’t be as happy because you depended on those outside sources for your happiness. You have to be happy with who you are, if you do this, you will have no need for outside sources.
I wish nothing from the list above. The things I want I cannot buy nor can I control. If things come my way, fine, if they don’t, that’s fine too. The most important thing to note about wanting is to not sell your soul, compromise your values or who you are for what you think you want.
