Not all of us know what we want out of life. Some of us are blessed at an early age to know where we are going, to understand our purpose. For those like me who only discovered that they have a purpose, this post is really for you.
Steps to understand what you don’t want
So the first thing I did, was to get a piece of paper and write down everything that I did not want in my life. I was being very detailed and very specific
I did not want lack of money, I did not want negativity, I did not want anyone who were self-centred, I did not want the job that I was currently in. If you get the drift, these are the things that I did not want in my life.
So, it took me awhile to really write down everything I did not want in my life, and then I re-read through everything I had written. Some of it really shocked me, because I was so in the flow that I was just writing everything down I was dumping on the sheet. After I finish though I felt a huge weight lifted from me, I felt relieved.
So I would encourage you to do the same.
Steps to understand what it is you do you want
So now feeling empty, and light at the same time and then I’ll begin to think of the things I did want.
So I did a similar exercise I got a piece of paper and I just started to gdt in the flow and write down everything I wanted in my life. A Beautiful house, the holidays, being financially free to be able to go anywhere and do what I wanted, what my kids and my friends wanted, and give back to those who needed support from society. I dreamt of outrageous things and I put them down on paper.
At the time, I did not have a special person in my life, so I put down what I wanted in that special person and I also asked for a sign so that if he was presented to me I would know it was him that I was looking for.
I made sure I was specific in my request . And do you know just three months later after writing that information down I met my life partner who I’ve now been with for the last nine years.
The secret to knowing what you want, is being clear on knowing what you do not want.
To help me achieve my dreams and my goals, I created a Vision Board, where I found the things that I wanted visually in magazines or online, and then I cut them out or made a picture of them and put them in a picture frame where I could see them every day . This helped with ensuring I get my vision and my goals
You have to be clear and specific on what you do want and to feel like you already have it, visualise it, dream about it, talk about it as if it is already here. Think in the NOW!
Life is not meant to be perfect, but you can enjoy it just the same if you know how to get what you want.
