Most people don't get what they want. It's true. And in a world where just about everything or the means of getting it is at our fingertips, you would think that this would not be the case.
Most don't people don't get what they want simply because they don't know what they want. They think they do, but when pressed, they really don't. It is surface level. Most people don't take the time to dig deep on themselves and ask the questions to know who they are and what they want - what they want from their life, work, relationships, spiritual pursuits and so on.
You have probably heard that in order to get what you want, you need to have clarity. Well, the only way to get clarity is to ask the questions of yourself and dig deeper past the surface level. And most importantly, ask yourself why you want what you want. That is the critical piece because once you understand why, it will give you the fuel and drive to go get it.
Another thing that keeps people from getting what they want is that once they know what it is they want, many times they are deterred by what it takes to get it. The work, the sacrifice, the time, etc. So many times they settle and miss out on the great things that happen when they go through the process to get what they want. When you decide to not settle and do what it takes to go after and achive your dreams, the process is transformational.
The last thing to know about getting what you want is that it is not enough to say it. You have to want it bad enough that you won't stop until you get it. If you are not willing to do everything it takes for the thing you want, then you probably are chasing the wrong thing. You'll know when you've found the things you truly want when you commit and decide that nothing will stop you from getting it.
