How to Get What You Want

Have you crafted your I WANT List? This is the list of everything you want in life. Business or personal, makes no difference. This is your collective list of what you know you want deep in your soul. There’s no right or wrong, level of importance, or judgement associated with your I WANT List. It just is. This is not a list you need to share with anyone but yourself, fit into a certain mold of life, or get approval to make happen. This is yours and yours alone. Have you crafted it?

The most amazing thing happens when you name what you want in life–the opportunity to get what you want opens up right before your eyes. In fact, this is the number one reason why people avoid crafting their I Want List–because it will happen. And as humans, what we fear most is actually getting the exact thing we want. Because if we actually get what we want, the second thing we fear most will be inevitable–change. So we say things like, “I can’t have what I want because I don’t want to hurt someone else. I don’t want to disappoint someone else. And I don’t want to be perceived as irresponsible.”

Here’s the reality: When you make the decision to not name and honor what you want in life and go for it, you’re actually hurting those around you because you deprive them of your best self–the part of you that is happy and feels good about who and what you are. Your choice to not put a stake in the ground and live your own truth is what’s irresponsible, and it will ultimately disappoint everyone around you–not to mention create a life of regret.

Contrary to what everyone around you may say, you have permission in this life to live however the hell you want. You can be want you want, love who you want, and contribute to this world exactly as you want. It doesn’t matter how old you are, how much money in the bank you have to “retire”, your education, your current relationship status, your job, or anything else that you believe are potential roadblocks between you and the life you actually want–this is your life, and you get to be and have what you want. You just need to have the courage to name it.

So have you crafted your I WANT List yet? If you’re hesitating, let me help you. Right now in this very moment, you have at least ten specific things you want–guaranteed. Ask yourself, and when you respond be specific. Here’s a list of ideas to get you started.

I want that new hybrid or luxury car…
I want a new house with lots of windows near the lake….
I want yellow flowers in front of my house…
I want to be with the person my soul loves…
I want a dog…
I want to start my own business…
I want to be my perfect weight…
I want to be healthy and full of vitality…
I want a child…
I want that job…
I want authentic friends…
I want to travel the world…

It doesn’t matter what you want. You can have it. You just need to name it, be bold enough to take action, and allow yourself the gift of receiving what you asked for. Now go make it happen. And remember, the universe makes things happen in surprising ways.
