Sounds like a simple question, right? But often we don’t take the time to get really clear on what it is we do want.
We can be so busy working, ploughing full steam ahead or taking care of other people’s needs that we don’t stop to ask this question.
Sometimes we are scared to. We don’t think it’s realistic or don’t believe we deserve what we really want.
But it’s a great thing to ask and to tune into.
So often we limit ourselves by what we think is possible. Fear holds us back.
But what would you do if you weren’t scared? What would you do if you really believed in yourself?
What stops you?
We have to figure out what it is that we want so that we can pursue it, and get clear on our priorities.
Sometimes we get knocked in life. Things get turned upside down and we lose confidence.
But we can choose to get back up, and we can choose to believe in ourselves.
If we don’t, then who will?
When we believe in ourselves anything is possible.
We create our realities from the inside out. If we don’t think something is possible then it won’t be.
At times we lose the thread of why we wanted what we want. We forget about it or suddenly lose interest. This can be fear and resistance sneaking in the back door.
So connect back to your whys. They will help you see your heartfelt desires and will keep you on track when things get tough.
Know that you have the power to create anything you truly want.
Allow yourself to dream. We often think far too small – based on our beliefs, what we’ve experienced to date and what we see around us.
Don’t do that. Place no limitations on what you really want – whether those are time, money or anything else. Don’t base it on what you think is possible. What do you really want and why?
How can you take steps towards it? How can you move in that direction, even in a small way?
Notice any resistance that comes up. Anything that tells you that you can’t have what you want, that you shouldn’t want it, that it’s not possible. Get curious about this.
What beliefs might be holding you back? Look at tackling those as they are in your way.
Sometimes we get trapped in unhelpful thought loops. We beat ourselves up and bemoan situations we find ourselves in. We blame other people or external events and it’s very easy to fall into victim mode – where we are powerless and everything is being done to us.
But there’s any easy way to turn that around, and to go from powerless to powerful – by getting clear on exactly what it is we want.
The victim asks ‘Why me?’
The powerful woman asks ‘What do I want?’
This immediately puts you back in the driving seat. Where you can take action to move yourself in the direction you want to go.
So get clear on that and watch things start lining up to assist you.
