How to get what you really want.

What do you really yearn for, what you are just dying to have in your life?  Start with this question:  how will it feel when you have it?  Imagine what it feels like to be totally in love with your life.  You don’t have to know how you got there.  You don’t even have to know exactly what it is.  Just imagine what it feels like when you’re there.

What are you feeling? Excited? Light-hearted? Peaceful? Over the moon?

If you’re not, why not?  What are you telling yourself that’s keeping you from feeling it?  It’s silly to pretend?  You can’t do it?  You might do it wrong?

Could that possibly be the same thinking that’s stopping you from having the life of your dreams?  Better check out that thinking with some truth testing.  And dump the thinking if it’s not true.

The truth is virtually all of our limits are self-concocted.  We tell ourselves that it’ll never happen, we can’t have it, and we wind up feeling like we got punched.  Only we did the punching, right in own gut with our own thinking.  And it sucks the creative juice and fun and the energy right out of us.  We don’t feel like making the effort and we’re blind to juicy opportunities that pop up right under our noses.

When we allow ourselves to feel light, open, energetic, filled with possibility, we set the stage for our dreams to come true.   We’re inspired and everything becomes possible.  Our hearts and our minds open.  We soar. The people, the situations, the opportunities find us and we’re awake and recognize them.  We know they’re there for us, so we gratefully grab them.  We’re experimental, playful, brilliant, bold.  And before long, we’ve got it.  The thing we wanted and a life we love.

Ironically, the journey to the life of our dreams feels as light and open and joyful as the life we want when we get there.  And it’s the only way to get there.

So got that?  Let’s try it again.  What is it that you want?  Now feel it by imagining that you’ve got it right now.  Let yourself tingle with it right down to your toes.  Take a soft breath or two and revel in it.  Then, take it with you.  Invent, dream, create, plan, act: whatever you do, do it with that feeling.

And when the path feels as beautiful as the destination, it’s like having what you want right now.  Amazing, eh?
