This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
The first question was about figuring out what you want.
Many people who I have had the pleasure of teaching over the years, have struggled with figuring out what they want. Part of the problem is that as a child, you were probably taught that you couldn’t have what you wanted. Being told this over and over again, shut down your capacity to dream or even fantasize about what you want.
Here’s a sure fire way to help you.
Sit down with a pen and a piece of paper and make a list of ALL the things you are tolerating in your life. By ALL I mean everything in your personal life AND your business life. Write down the smallest little annoyances, and also the really big things.
Once your list is complete, go to work on changing those things.
Pretty soon, you’ll realize that you are beginning to see clearly what you want.
Your second question was about not knowing how to change to achieve what you want.
Change always starts with a decision.
This can be tricky.
If you are deciding what you want based on the perceived “problems” of the change that will need to be made, you will never make a decision.
Start with your list of tolerations.
Then decide what you want.
Finally, begin taking action toward that change.
And always remember, change is messy.
If it were easy, everyone would be wealthy.
In the end, it is those who are willing to change, adapt and grow that achieve the most success in life.
