How Badly Do You Want It?

What do you dream about? As you lay in bed and everyone else is finally sleeping and you are getting ready to doze off, what thoughts are you having? What are you thinking about? What are you longing for? What kind of life do you wish you were living? What if you took action to get exactly what you want? Does it seem impossible? I bet you can do a lot more to transform your life than you think.
What would you do? If you took away all of the external pressures like money, time and status quo how would you live your life differently? Would you travel? Would you quit your job? Would you get a new job? Would you face each day as an adventure? Ask yourself, what is really holding you back from living the life you want? Figure out what you want. So much of unhappiness and dissatisfaction comes from feeling trapped in your circumstances. It may be a lack of financial security, a job you hate or other challenges that you face in your life. Feeling like you do not have the power to change things is disheartening. What would your life look like if things were different? What would you do? What choices would you make? Now paint that picture for yourself. Be very clear in all the details of what you be doing if you could do anything without limitations.What is stopping you? Now that you have imagined your ideal life, what is the first obstacle that you face in achieving this dream? Is it money? Time? Motivation? Fear? Your first step should be eliminating that obstacle in your life. You might be thinking, “how do I suddenly start making more money?” “How can I get more time in my day?” That is when you really need to look deep inside your heart and figure out a way. All the solutions lie within you.I know this sounds like a lot of life coaching hog wash. But it is true. If you really want something, you will figure out a way. No one else can help you with this one. Not me. Not a psychic. Not a spiritual teacher. Not even a really great episode of Super Soul Sunday. You will have to come up with a way to live the life you want. If you want it bad enough. The only question you have to ask yourself is “how badly do you want to make your dreams a reality?”IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR INSPIRATION: I am launching The Mom’s 7 Day Challenge to Go from Tired to Inspired  on social media.
