What do you want?

In my line of work I get to talk to a lot of people and one thing I've noticed is that they all have a common theme; they all know what they don't want, but they struggle with what they do want. I'm not saying this is a bad thing because we all have to find our way through life via trial and error. Not one of us on this planet wakes up at birth saying, "This is what I want to be, and this is who I will be."

This dialog is an ever changing one when we are young. We might decide we want to be an Astronaut, Nurse, Doctor, Race Car Driver... and the list grows as we age and as we try different things. We go to college to study medicine only to find out that spinning records is much more fulfilling. Some of us get stuck doing something we don't love for many years because of family obligation, or social acceptance. Breaking that cycle and

really doing what you want is difficult and complicated.

It's easy to say what you don't want. It's easy because you've either tried it or someone you know has tried and failed. Nobody wants a bad marriage. Nobody wants to get stuck in a job they don't like, or a career that just gets them by. To finally sit down and decide what you do want can be depressing because it might seem impossible from where you are sitting right now. You might feel that you don't deserve it, or you don't have enough money, you're not attractive enough, you're too fat, etc. This dialog will never change until you change. Your circumstances aren't going to magically disappear overnight. And they most definitely aren't going to change if you're stuck in the dialog of what you don't want.

So Dave... how am I going to change this?

You can start by sitting down and writing down what you want.
