How to ALWAYS get what you want: Establish your priorities



What are your top priorities in life? 
Which goals are you desperately trying to achieve?


Priority: A thing that is regarded as more 
important than another.


So many times I hear people complain.. 
"I never get what I want.. life just doesn't seem to go my way... If only I had XYZ then I'd be happy.."


Today I have this challenge for you:
1. Write down all of your wishes...
2. Narrow your list down to no more than 3-5 items... Only choose the things you currently consider essential to your happiness.
3. Now...here's the tricky part.. In order to get what you want you must prioritize your wishes over all of the other unessential things in life... 

I find that if you ask someone.. "what do you REALLY want?" most of the time people can come up with a couple of things right away.
However when you ask them: "well.. are you working towards achieving this? what are you doing to get it?" they don't know what to say or they come up with excuses for why they're not doing anything.

When you really want something, then you need to ask yourself:
what am I willing to do and give to get this?
Since we have limited time and resources, we unfortunately can't have or do everything at once... Therefore, we must choose what's really important and eliminate anything that might distract us from reaching our goals.
If you say you want something but then come up with excuses as to why you can't or don't have what you want, then you're taking away your own power. Whether or not you are aware of it, by using excuses you are prioritizing your fears over your dreams...

So take an honest look at your life and make a conscious attempt to define what matters. Be aware that sacrifices must be made...
End your excuses and concentrate on your dreams. Dare to go after what you want, have patience, be relentless... and remember that any major achievement is worth fighting for.
