How Do You Really Get What You Want?

Yesterday’s post was a fun, light hearted question prompted by a ransom encounter.  It is thought provoking though.  While that was a dream kind of question, there are many times we have things we want to accomplish.

This time of year it may be a new goal.  So what are some steps you can take to get what you want? 

1.  Do an honest assessment of where you are right now.  I mean a truly honest one.  Use a trusted friend to help you talk through it if needed.
2. Where is it you want to get to?  What is the end goal?
3. Now put the two together.  What steps do you need to take to get from where you are to where you want to be? 
4. Are you ready for the biggest advice of all?  DO IT!  Get up, stay up, and do it day after day.

Are you committed to it, or just interested?
Are you in it for the long haul, or will the first obstacle derail you?
Are you more interested in what can be, or what is?

To get what you want you may need to do what you have never done before, which may start with the four questions above.

I’m cheering for you.
