Do You Know What You Really Want?

It is very tough to get somewhere when you don't know where you're going. This is why one of the basic steps in getting where you want to be is actually knowing where you want to be. This sounds so simple and basic, but often, this is exactly where we get tripped up. Sometimes what we are aiming for is not our true want or desire - it is someone else's or it is what we think we should want. Think of times in your life when you wound up somewhere and thinking, “How did I get here? This is NOT where I thought I’d be at this point in my life? I would be willing to bet that more often than not, when that happens, it’s because you didn’t have a clear idea of where you wanted to be.

Often, we are at the mercy of the winds of fate – we make decisions not pro-actively with clarity towards a goal, but more by chance when something occurs that forces our hand.

Here are some ways to discover what it is YOU really want. Once you have that - then it becomes so much easier to create the plan and take the actions that will get you there.
