I am always looking for the possibilities that exist outside of mainstream thought. Many of us believe there are the standard solutions in life. But I always ask myself “is there more? Is there something else? Is there another way?” What I have found are many different ways to do things and plenty of roads to choose from. Let’s first look at why some people are not Possibility Seekers.
When coaching my clients or talking with guests on my radio show I often discuss the LIE. This is the idea that we are often sold throughout our lives. Be a “good girl” in school, don’t get in trouble, get good grades so you can go to a good university, pick an “acceptable” major so you can provide for yourself and your family, get married (or find a partner) have kids (or not) and live happily ever after. If this did lead you to the true path of happiness why are so many people still not happy? Most of you have done what you were “supposed to” and now do you feel exhausted, unfulfilled, empty, defeated?
Maybe you are tired, numb, feeling defeated. This does not have to be your life’s journey. You can actually have what you want. The first step is to know what you want. Do you know what you want in your life? For may that is a difficult question to answer. You may first need to make a list of what you don’t want. Then move on to what you want.
Clarity is the first step to possibilities. When you go to google search, you type in what you are looking for and the search engine processes your request with a list of links. Now if you are not clear in your search words, your outcome will be less clear from google. This is the same if you don’t know what you want, how can you get there.
For the next week, each day ask yourself What do I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want? Make a list of 3-5 things that you really, really, really want in life. If that is still to difficult, then start with a list of what you don’t want to help you figure out what you do want.
Next week I will have what to do next.
So readers I ask you to share with us “What do you Really, Really, Really want in your life?”
