What do you want?

“What do you want?”

When I ask my clients, this question the response is a blank stare.  When they do respond the response is “What do you mean?”

Then I ask the question again but with a little tweak.

“If there is nothing keeping you from getting what you want, if the world is in perfect order for you to get what you want,

What do you want?”

Then suddenly, their brain opens to all the possibilities even though the question is the same “What do you want?”

Our brain sometimes shuts down a “want” because it immediately starts putting out reasons why we can’t get what we want – creating obstacles.  Our brain is doing its job.  It’s protecting us.

It’s our responsibility to let our brain know it’s OK.  There’s no reason to protect us. Let it know you’re open to it all – including the challenges, the hard and the scary.

Now you’re ready to look at your “wants” and make decisions with a brain in a position of clarity.  Without all the “buts” keeping you from getting what you want. And, instead what are the pros and cons of going after your “wants.”

And, when you’re done looking at the pros and cons, you may decide some of the “wants” are a “No.”  At least for today.  And that’s OK.

P.S. Reply to this email and let me know if you believe you can’t get what you want.  And if so, what are some of those things you’re missing out on.
