Some people say it’s OK to not get exactly what you want in life. Some say you should settle for good enough because you wouldn’t want to get disappointed. I couldn’t disagree more. You can get everything you want, and you can get it now. In this article I’ll show you exactly how to do that.
As you keep reading, you will be pleasantly surprised at what you discover. You see, most people don’t know about this, which is why they are chasing something they don’t have to chase.
You can stop looking for the answer, because it’s already here.
- What Do YOU Want?
The first thing you have to get clear about is exactly what you want. Do you want to have a dream life and live someplace warm? Do you want to find your soul mate, or find work that makes you amazingly fulfilled and happy?
Ask these questions of yourself right now and pick something that you really think would make a big difference in your life if you had it today.
- The Truth About Middlemen
We've been told that when we get stuff, we will be happy. And, you probably think that when you have something, when you are a certain way, or when you're with a special person, you will be happy.
We've all been there, and I'm still there from time to time. We are human, so we will feel these feelings now and then. But the truth of the matter is that every one of these “things” are middlemen to what we really want.
- Thinking Makes It So
When you really think about it, haven't you felt good, at peace, and fulfilled without having all the things that you thought would make you happy? And haven’t you gotten what you wanted and not felt how you thought you would feel? It is not the external things and events that make us happy, but what is inside of us.
We've all been happy at one point or another, which means that you can be happy whenever you want. The things that we are truly after are good feelings. It’s all on the inside.
We want to feel good, and we want to avoid feeling bad. All our fears are just about us being afraid of feeling bad in the future. However, when you think and worry about your fears, you feel bad instantly, so in essence you are replaying the event you’re afraid of over and over in your head, which makes it happen now.
- Feeling, Then Getting
There's an easier way to get exactly what you want, which is to feel good now and then go after the things that you prefer to have, be or do.
So how do you get to these feelings underneath the things?
That's a great question, and the answer is very simple. Actually, the answer is a question. Let's say you want the perfect relationship. In order to get to the bottom of that and discover the feeling, all you have to do is ask yourself the following question: What would that give me that I wouldn't otherwise have?
When you get the first answer, keep asking that question until you get to the end of the line. And when you get there, notice where in your body you're feeling the feelings and how they move around, if they move.
This will instantly give you the feeling that you're after. You don't have to use the middleman to get there, because you can feel it now.
- What Would Happen If?
What would happen if you felt good right now? As you read this, you may doubt what I'm saying, because after all, we have to work hard to feel good, or at least that's what we've been told.
Who knows if this is true?
And why wouldn't you want to feel good all the while you're working towards what you want to get from life? Isn't it easier to feel good while making tremendous progress? Obviously, sometimes you'll get stuck in a negative thought pattern, but you can always return to feeling good if you really want to.
Remember, you can get exactly what you want. You can feel amazing right now.
