This Post is an excellent idea from one of my favourite Personal Growth guru, Jim Rohn who died in 2009. A lot of his speeches are on YouTube and he has many books including excellent audio book “ The day That Turned Your Life around”. He taught Tony Robins from a very young age and has over 40 plus years of experience in personal development.
Here is brief summary of getting what you want.
1 : Write down 50 things you want. This could be places to visit, items you want, experiences or any thing you don’t have but want. Example visit India , big house , new relationship or new career in acting.
2 : Number each item on the list on how long it would take you to achieve the goal either : 1 year : 3 years : 5 years or 10 years.
3 : Have 4 categories of 4 different time periods . Put the wants in their respective year. Example : new relationship year 1, new career in acting year 3 ,visit India year 5 and have a big house year 10.
5 : Now you should have all your 50 wants divided into each year.
6 : Year 1 list ,choose 4 most important goals you want.
Ask the question for each goal : Why do you want this specific goal and why is it important to you personally? This will activate the desire from an emotional cause. The more you desire the want , the easier the action will be. Another question to fuel the desire : What is the Purpose of the goal and what kind of person do you need to be to attain it?
Jim Rohn said in his workshop that the astronauts that fly to the moon have goals to reach when they come back to earth because it effects astronauts psychologically if no focus. From a brain perspective or ego, brain needs to focus on the future especially after a momentous event give meaning to a person life. He said that his father at the age 92, a year before his death had goals to give him purpose in his life.
Writing down the list is the lift or motivation to get the brain into momentum, especially the subconscious part that runs all our behaviour and programs. Reviewing the list and adjusting what you want is giving the universe opportunity to bless your intentions and discover what you really want.
In conclusion the things you want is about exploring and experiencing life wonderful opportunities now and in the future.
