Sometimes we don’t actually know what we want in any given situation. Often, when I ask new 1-to-1 clients what they want, the first thing I hear is “I don’t know”.
Well, we often DO know but either cannot or will not admit it. Other times, we really don’t know what we want – because we are overwhelmed by what we don’t want!
And if you’re stuck, that’s as good a place as any to start.
Here, let me start a list of “don’t wants” for you:
I don’t want:
- to work more than 9 hours a day
- to get out of bed before 8am
- to work with people who are negative
- to go from paycheck to paycheck
- to feel lonely
- to live in a messy house
- to be overweight
Action – After writing out your complete list of don’t wants, put it away. The next day, review it and then promptly throw it away. Now, write out 2 goals you are willing to pursue over the next month.
As you do this exercise monthly, you’ll gain a lot more clarity on what’s important and what you TRULY want to create in life.
