How to get what you want
We are living in a time of limitless opportunities and Possibilities.A time were we are free to decide what we want out of life.A time that we can venture into any legitimate venture we wish to. If this be the case, why are people living in lack and poverty? Why are many living a life of frustration ? Why do people blame their circumstances on external events ?
The fact remains that, we can have , be or do whatever we want with our lives. There is no limitations whatsoever to what we can achieve , so long as we are willing to pay the price.You are a result of your past decisions and actions. Therefore, if you want your life to change you must change things in your life.
What do you desire in life? Do you want a cherished goal or ambition? A good job, a fancy car, a nice house? While you can’t get literally everything in life, it is certainly possible to aim high, dream, and achieve a lot.
The following are the 3 practical steps to get what you want. You dont need to be a guru to make it work,because it is simple and straight forward.
How to get what you want in 3 steps
1. Define what you want
Defining your goal is the first step toward starting any kind of change or process you’re interested in, whether it is in getting your dream job , building a house or going on a vacation.What ever it is , you must define it in specific terms whatever you want.
Knowing what you want creates order in your mind; it focuses your attention on your goal; it releases stress because you know where you are and where you are going.
- Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement.
– W. Clement Stone
Many persons find it difficult to define what they want because they are ignorant of the fact that “whatever the mind of man can concieve and belief, the mind can achieve”. So start asking yourself , what exactly you want to do with your life . What do you desired to remembered for, after you are no more . Never allow fear to rob you of you destiny. Start now and decide what you want.
- Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they are going to tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.-Will Smith.
2. Define the price you must pay
In order to receive the rich rewards of success there is a price to be paid.
Many seek success, but few are willing to make the necessary investment in order to secure it.
Are you one who will pay, or are you someone who wants a free ride?
If you are willing to pay the price required to achieve success , the rewards are richer than you could have ever imagined. It is actually not what you achieve, but what you become along the way and who you help along the way, that makes it so rich and rewarding.
Whatever you want, identify with those who have gotten what you want and learn from them. Learn everything possible.ask questions and create an action plan.
Just like starting a new business, you must develop a feasibility study , so as to know what it entails. So also it is in building a house, you must have a design that gives you a clear understanding of how you want it to look like.
Therefore ,sit down and start thinking on paper exactly what you need to do daily , weekly, and month in order to make your dream a reality.
- Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.-Henry Ford.
3. Act immediately with persistence
No worthwhile goal or dream can be achieved if not backed with action.This is the bridge that takes you to your dreamed destination.Many presidents have gone without ruling a nation.Many musicians have died without releasing any album.Many great footballers have passed on without stepping on the pitch. Never allow these horrible experiences to be your portion.
In order to achieve any meaningful endevour, you must face challenges and temporary defeats. My advice is that you should act with persistence. Dont you ever give up. Keep moving forward and your breakthrough will be guaranteed.
