To Get What You Want

February 26, 2018

… you have to go through what you DON’T.

Generally speaking, in order to get what you want in life, you have to pass through what you don’t. Sure, we all want certain things in life, but we don’t all get them because we want them or because we think we deserve them, we get them because we do the work to get them. Life doesn’t just hand you rewards, it wants to see if you are up to the task of earning them. 

If you are not where you want to be in life, acknowledge it and push through it; don’t succumb to it. Your life gives you cloaked opportunities for growth. It may seem like something is taking you down, but it’s only there to see if you can take yourself up and over it. 

Life is what you do with it. When you can face what you don’t want, the universe will always bring you what you do. And if you feel like you’re never going to get what you want — keep going, recognize that it means you’re almost there.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
