Push a little harder towards your goals. They are waiting...

Life's full of dreams and wishes, but there's one question that really hits home: what do you actually want?

Joel Salatin once said that the worst thing in life is realizing you got good at the wrong thing. It's like being lost in a maze without a map.

So, let's cut through the noise and get real about what matters.

Going Deeper

When someone asks what you want, it's easy to give a quick answer like, "I want to be rich." But why? Is it about showing off, paying bills, or gaining freedom? When considering your goals, and what drives you, it’s important to dive deeper and look at why you want to achieve these big goals.

Imagine if this year had a theme. It wouldn't be about dwelling on the bad. Instead, it's about figuring out exactly what you want in life. It's like setting the GPS to your dreams.

Getting Specific

So, what's on your wishlist? Maybe it's a cozy home in the mountains or a loving relationship. Whatever it is, getting specific helps you know where you're headed.

Taking the time to get clear and specific on your goals lets you know when you’ve achieved them and make targeted moves to achieve them.

Looking Beyond the Surface

Sure, money's nice, but what do you really want it for?

Is it about buying more things or having security? Understanding your deeper desires is key to finding true happiness.

Sometimes, our goals are just stepping stones to something bigger. Like wanting to help your parents retire – it's noble, but what's the ultimate dream behind it? Really take the time to understand yourself and your why - it makes you that much stronger when things get tough.

Learning from the Greats

Think about people in history who chased their dreams. Whether it's Freud exploring the human mind or Elon Musk aiming for Mars, they knew what they wanted and went after it.

So, what lights you up inside? Whether it's reading, traveling, or something else, embracing your passions is the key to living a fulfilling life.

So as we step into the year ahead, make a commitment to yourself to ask the important question, "What do I want?" Because when we're clear about our desires, we can chart a course to a truly fulfilling life.
