Don’t Tell Me What You Want!

maybe she is dreaming of better days? — thank you to my girlfriend for being such a patient model! (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It is heard all too often. I want a new house. I want to be debt free. I want a fancy car. I want to send my kids to a better school. All dreams. Not goals. All daydreams. All wants. No plan. No action. Just wants. Just weak wants. Ugh!

Don’t tell me what you want! I don’t want to hear what you want! Don’t tell me what you want to have or do or see or be or whatever. Wants are useless. Wants are worthless. Get rid of your wants. Drop them. They will only lead you to disappointment and despair.

Get Deeper!

Now, go for a desire. Not some pie-in-the-sky want. Go for what you deeply desire. Define every aspect of it. See it. Feel it. Smell it. Taste it. Now, are you ready to work for it?

If you are not willing to put everything you have into what you desire the most, it is a worthless desire to you. Move on. Find something else.

What are you willing to work for? What are you willing to work harder than you ever have in your life for? What will drive you to push until you have it?

Now that you have the desire, let’s talk.
