There are lots of things you say you want — but are you truly going after them? This article may be just the wake-up call you need.
We have an important question for you: What is it that you truly want?
? A vacation? More time with your family?
Whatever it is, are you doing everything you can to get it?
In a thought-provoking post, Therese Schwenkler of The Unlost says no; we’re not really going after .
Because, according to her, “Getting what you want takes viewing every. Single. Decision in your life through the filter of what you want most.”
Be honest… are you making it happen?
So think about it. Are you really pushing yourself every day towards what you want most?
In the post, Schwenkler gives several examples of not fully committing yourself — some of which might hit home:
“You say you don’t have the time, but you have time to pick apart your Facebook feed… to keep up with the Kardashians… to read this article right now. (Just sayin’.)…
You say you want a promotion, a raise, more freedom, more recognition, but you watch the clock as the hours count down, doing just what you need to do to get by…
You say you want these things, but it’s obvious there’s something else you want more.”
Does that sound familiar? Can you find any disconnects between what you say you want and how you ?
Even if the struggles mentioned above are foreign to you, it doesn’t matter: everyone has something they want. Schwenkler says your priority “doesn’t need to sound ‘impressive’” or “involve ‘chasing your dreams’ or giving everything up… It’s ok if you’d rather have a safe, secure income than risk it all on a dream.”
What matters is that you pursue it with everything you have.
Going back to our initial question, what is the one thing you truly want?
