How To Figure Out What You Want In Life
Jul 06, 2022
You have a pretty good life, with a good job, and great friends, but you just feel like something is missing, which doesn’t make sense. What if there was a way to figure out what you want in life when it feels like something is missing?
I had a pretty good life and things I wanted, but I always felt like something was missing. I just couldn’t make any sense out of why I felt that way. The truth is, I didn’t really know what I wanted, and I didn’t really know how to figure it out either. I spent years chasing after all the possibilities that I thought would get me closer to what I really wanted, even when I didn’t really know what that was.
I got really good at knowing what I didn’t want. I thought it would get easier to figure out what I did want by knowing what I didn’t want. I’ve had the experience of getting what I thought I wanted, and then still feeling like something was missing. In the past, I wanted to be a personal trainer. I got the certification, and did it for a while, but that wasn’t it. I thought I wanted to do all the MLM’s, and I did quite a few, but they weren’t the answer either. I thought I wanted a craft studio. I opened one, got what I thought I wanted, but it wasn’t it either. I’ve gotten many things that I wanted, but after I got them all, it still felt like something was missing. Have you experienced this?
I’ve done many things over the years trying to figure it out. I read all the self help books that I thought held the answers. I made many pros and cons lists. I’ve also just done nothing, because I didn’t know what to do. All I knew was that with all the things I was doing, I still felt like something was missing. Have you done any or all of these things?
If I were to ask you, “what do you want?”, what would your answer be? Do you know or would it be a list of all the things you don’t want? I had to learn that there wasn’t a magic checklist on how to get what I wanted and not feel like something was still missing once I got it.
Here’s the good news. When you learn what you truly want, you realize that there wasn’t really anything missing, even though that’s how you felt.
When I joined Manifest $10K and started focusing daily on what I wanted, I actually learned that what I truly wanted was different than what I thought it was. There was no magic checklist, yet there was a process within the program that led me to gaining clarity. Getting clear with my $10K list helped me get clarity and move me towards what I really wanted.
I shared above about wanting a craft studio, and how I got it. It was going through Manifest $10K where I gained the clarity I needed to know that I didn’t want the brick and mortar part of the studio. What I did want was to be an artist. This was huge for me! I thought I wanted a craft studio because then I could justify being crafty and it was getting what I thought I wanted. So, why did it feel like something was still missing? Because I hadn’t become or allowed myself to be something rather than “get” something. Becoming and allowing myself to be an Artist was really what I wanted, but thought I had to “get” a studio to be one. This was so life changing, that I literally closed and moved my studio to my home within 30 days to be an Artist who could work from anywhere.
Now that I know how to tune into what I want and gain the clarity needed to move me towards it, my life is easier and everything is better. I no longer feel like something is missing. I have two businesses that I love, which are being an Abundance Facilitator and an Artist. I have amazing relationships with all those in my life. Plus, what I want just keeps coming and my life is more amazing than I could imagine.
A few tips:
- When you’re thinking about what you want, ask yourself how you will feel when you have it.
- Will you feel joy, happy, calm? You fill in the feeling you want to feel.
- How you will feel when you have what you want is really a game changer to figuring out what you want in life.
- Go do things now that will make you feel those feelings today.
- You don’t have to wait for what you want to show up before you can feel that way.
- Your feelings will bring you more of what you want.
- You will spend less time trying to figure it all out
