Surprisingly, knowing what we want for ourselves is actually more challenging than we lend credit to. You see most of us think we know what we want. But, if you were to ask 100 people to articulate what they want to create in the next year, 5 years, 20 years, in their life in general, I would bet there would be about 1% who knew exactly.
And THAT is half the reason why they would not refer to themselves as being 'successful' and instead are chasing the next big thing hoping and wishing it was going to be THE thing.
A great leader of the personal development arena, the late Brian Klemmer, would always say: "what we want has nothing to do with what we create". Just knowing what we want is just half of the equation.
We must then apply the art of persistence.
Once we know what we are wanting then it is a matter of persistence. Doing the one thing we choose with such persistence that in the end we have it. It's about being so committed that there is no other outcome other than the result of what it is we want.
So, when you see someone who is struggling to obtain the success their heart desires ask yourself the question, "How can I support this person in identifying what it is they want to create." Because that is half the battle.
What do you want to create?
