When you push yourself by creating high goals, it forces you to stretch your comfort zone to a place of constant expansion.

What do you WANT?! That is the Question!

What do you WANT?! That is the Question!

I am curious: Do you know yourself well enough to have a clear definition of what you want? It sounds like a strange question, but many people don’t (1.) know themselves well or (2.) have a clear definition of what they want. And, it’s imperative we figure this out! I created my blog this year with the specific purpose of helping Etsy sellers define and create the success they seem to seek. I offer tips, ideas, and instruction for gaining sales and earning income.

However, if you don’t know where your destination is, it will take you forever to arrive. In other words, business articles can offer you advice all day long, but unless you apply it toward your definite goals, you’ll be zig-zagging all over the map.

I have an important request of everyone who reads this article. I ask it kindly, but urgently: please do not compromise with life. Please do not vaguely wish for more money, more exposure, more family time, more love, more success, more laughter, or more adventure. If you want more of anything, kindly turn off the TV or stop surfing the internet, sit down with yourself, and clearly identify what needs to change for you to feel fulfilled, satisfied, and hungry for more Life every day! Because we all deserve more LIFE in our life.

This means no more accepting, keeping, or doing what you don’t want. This is a tough statement, because it calls for change. Change can be uncomfortable–but the discomfort only lasts a minute in the grand scheme of things. I promise more on embracing change next time, but the point is:

When you push yourself by creating high goals, it forces you to stretch your comfort zone to a place of constant expansion.

Better, harder, faster, stronger. Grow. Gain. Achieve. As Cherie Carter-Scott said, “You deserve to have everything in your life exactly as you want it.” To kick-start your success, I ask that you create a clear definition of what you want. I promise to use the next several posts to help you start organizing your wants and desires into an action plan, but first you must name what you want!

Your first assignment: Compose an “I Want” list. It will have three columns, and I want you to list AT LEAST 10 items under each category. Your categories are: I want to have; I want to be; and I want to do. And don’t you dare put easy things on that list! Here, you want to stretch your imagination, reach for the stars, and envision your very best life. Yes you can have it all–you absolutely deserve to have everything in your life exactly as you want it. So, go make your list, check it twice, and meet me back here next week!

  5. Ah what powerful words. That’s exactly where I am right now, What do I want? What do I want to be when I grow up? I devoted so much of my life to my children I lost sight of the vision or the goal for me.
