What Do You Want?

A question we don't ask ourselves enough...

What do you want?

Really. 

Think about it. 

What do you really want?

It's very easy to get into a negative mindset talking about what you don't want or don't have. 

I am overweight. 

I can't do this. 

I don't have enough money. 

I don't like my job. 

Whatever the case may be, we seem to be very clear on what we don't want, what is currently wrong, and what we don't like. 

However, think of the negativity that creates. 

If we're always focusing on what we don't want or what we don't have, how can we stay positive about working towards what we do want?

I spent twenty minutes this morning just freehand journaling a list of things or feelings I do want. 

It helped. 

I then matched it up with my long-term and short-term goals and made sure they were clear and defined. 

I challenge you to spend some time asking yourself what you really want.

Get really clear on it. 

Get crystal clear on it. 

Don't say...I want to lose weight or I want to fit into smaller jeans. 

Say...I want 20% body fat and to be able to fit into my size 10 jeans. 

Don't say...I want more money. 

Say...I want to have $100,000 saved by December 31, 2020.

Don't say...I want to travel more. 

Say...I want to go to California, Mexico, and Costa Rica by December 31, 2020. 

You get the point. 

Don't talk in generic terms, get clear on what you want, and in order to be clear, it needs to be specific. 

Yes, this is a form of goal setting, but I also enjoy the journaling aspect of it and getting in a positive headspace talking about the things we do want, instead of always focusing on what we don't want or what we don't have. 

Give it a try and let me know how you like it. 

1% Better.
