What Do You Want?

What is it that you really want? Do you want more money? More respect? More happiness? More time?

You can’t “get” until you want. You can’t “do” until you want.

You can’t commit, persist, or exist without wanting.

Maybe that’s what is broken for you.

You don’t want it enough. You don’t ache for change. You aren’t passionate about being different.

If things change and life get’s better — you’re cool with that — just as long as you don’t have to be too invested in the process.

You want more for yourself as long as you don’t have to get hurt in the process.

And so you venture nothing and end up gaining nothing.

You want enough to do whatever it takes.

That’s the secret to life changing breakthrough — wanting.

If you want better results enough, then you’ll find yourself acting differently. The things that used to hold you back are no longer obstacles.

You make due with not enough money, not enough resources, and not enough time.

Those things matter — they matter deeply — they just don’t stop you.

You don’t let anything stop you.

You can’t let anything stop you. Because deep down in your soul, you long for more. It’s the only thing you can think about.

It’s what wakes you in the morning. And all you can think about before you go bed.

It impacts your relationships, what you do with your free time, and how you spend your money.

It’s a religion — a whole new way to think and act and behave.

So what do you want?

What is driving you? Anything?

Are you moved to tears? Moved to work? Moved to give more, be more, do more?

If not, maybe that’s your reason for not getting the results that you want.

Maybe it’s time to start wanting more for yourself.

And then letting that want change your life forever.
