We all do it at times. We make our choices for what we want based on a current reality, that is, the natural “next level,” OR in response to what is being offered to us.
We manipulate what we REALLY want into what we think we can get instead.
As a result, we skip the #1 step in the fool-proof process to getting anything we want- CHOOSE.
I’ll give you an example. A client is being sought after to fill a new position in the organization. When asked, “What do you want?” he states, “I’m going to see what they offer me and go from there.”
This waiting to choose based on logic or what others decide almost always guarantees you will limit who you become and what you receive!
See all kinds of things happen when you choose what you want based on your deepest desires and your highest vision. First, when you CHOOSE (regardless of what the current reality rationally dictates) you begin to show up in the world in a way that attracts what you want. You commit. Like a thoroughbred with blinders, you pursue your target.
Second, the universe or God or nature, whatever you want to call it, conspires to support you. I see it all of the time in my own life and in the lives of my clients.
Physiologically this is explained by understanding that our brain works to map out a path to the picture it sees in the mind. Brain science confirms this. Deliberately choosing that picture is, therefore, pivotal to creating what you want.
So here’s the point I want to make: don’t wait to choose what you REALLY want based on…
What the company decides
What the neighbors prefer
What seems logical or rationale
What you think you can have
Or what is being offered
YOU CHOOSE. YOU DECIDE.
Bottom line: Whether you’re a corporate leader, an entrepreneur, or full-time mom, your first step in getting what you really want is to choose it. You can create whatever you choose to be!
What the client above really wanted was the opportunity to have a global role within the company, with a limited amount of travel (sounds crazy, I know), with a salary 35% higher than a similar position had previously been paid and to receive options in the company.
He chose and saw this before it was offered, AND he got it all. But then that’s just the way it works.
Complete the following what I REALLY want in my business… my relationships… my finances… my health…my life is…
Some people make the mistake of not thinking they have the time or money to choose what they want. They don’t schedule the time to reflect. If you haven’t done this yet this year, schedule 45 minutes in your calendar this week to CHOOSE.
(Your future self will thank you.)
Wishing you all that you wish for yourself,
