I’ve Always Wanted To But…

So often, the most difficult question for the people I speak with to answer is, “What do you want?”

It may be that so many things come to mind that the answer gets clogged. More often than not though, it is because they have focused so much on meeting the needs of those around them that they have made their own dreams a last priority.

Sometimes the rules in your head are simply marketing.  Repeated messages from the world to keep you numb.  The “you must ask permission to use the restroom in school” kind of rules.  These rules are made to maintain order but they are not the law. Listen closely.  Only you know what you need to really change your life.

Did you answer the questions above?  I hope so.  If not, do it now.  They are  your starting point.  I call it “Hope”.
