Decide What You Want to Be, Do, and Have

The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.

If you were to describe “success,” what would it look like? No doubt it would include all the things you want to experience, accomplish, and acquire — including those things on your “bucket list.”

Unfortunately, many people have the whole scenario backward — they start with what they want to have first, then, later on in life, they find themselves at a point where they realize that they don’t know either why they are here or what their life purpose is.

They don’t have the inner success they expected — and the deep sense of joy that should come from living their life purpose is completely missing.

Let this thought encourage you: No matter what your age or circumstance, you can always decide to do things differently. You can start the process of deciding what you want.

Affirmation of the day:

I am defining in clear and compelling detail what I want to be, what I want to do, and what I want to have.
