So you know you want something different than what you have. You can’t seem to put your finger on what you want. And, the big one, you don’t know where to begin.
In my years of helping others reach their dreams, I’ve learned a couple of things –
For most of us, our lives are pretty good. They could be more exciting, and you could make more money. Maybe your relationships could sparkle a bit more?
Still, you may feel frozen from a fear of what you might lose. It may be from a fear that you won’t get what you want. Is it possible that you are living in a someday-maybe mindset?
In the business world, things are a bit more clear.
If you want to succeed, all you need to do is offer something your customer wants or needs and provide a solution. It’s simple math. The customer will take you up on your offer, and your business will thrive. Or, they won’t even notice your business, and your competition will succeed.
Your personal life is the same way.
You recognize that your desire is a problem that needs a solution. Or, you stay forever and frustratingly in a someday-maybe mindset.
But, what if there was a magical question you could ask yourself? A question that, if you are willing to accept the answer, would transform your trajectory?
I asked a confused client on a recent call,
“If I could wave a magic wand and transform your life into exactly what you wanted – what would that look like?”
The first few seconds were silent – until the floodgates of her imagination opened. The picture was painted, and she could see the future.
She let out a deep breath, relaxed, and said –
“Thanks for getting me to admit what I wanted finally. I’ve been thinking about it for years. I was afraid to say it out loud. It feels good.”
It always feels good when you release the dream locked inside of you. Now, accept that you want it and get work making it real.
If in doubt, wave your magic wand!
