Some thoughts on an article…

I recently read an article in O magazine.  At the bottom it said this: “Here’s the truth: People who get what they want tend to be the ones who make the effort to know what they want.”

I do agree with that line of thinking.  To know what you want, you need to examine yourself and see what you really want.  Martha Beck went on to share 4 steps to help you visualize the best situation, and then make it happen!

1. Pushback: The more specific you are about what upsets you, and why, the clearer you can make your desires.

2. Possibilities: Mentally playback the possibilities of your dreams.

3. Preferences: These are the ones that you really enjoy when you think about your possibilities.

4. Pinpoints: Focus in and pinpoint your desires!
