What Exactly Stops People From Having The Life They Want?

Not everyone gets what they want in life.

In fact, I would argue that most people don’t get exactly what they want in life.

And I am so glad.

Because I remember wanting a truck, that I didn’t get, a girlfriend that I didn’t get and a job, which I didn’t get as well. As it turns out, none of these things were a great fit for me. The truck didn’t have enough room, the job didn’t have enough flexibility and the girl didn’t have anything that my wife now has.

And so, people don’t get what they want in life for a few reasons.

  1. They don’t really know what they will want in the future, because they don’t know who they will be as time goes on.
  2. They don’t spend enough time planning how to get it.

We don’t spend enough time planning how to get what we want because so often we are trying to figure out what it is that we want. We are trying to figure out who we are and what really makes us happy. When we know who we are and what makes us truly happy, getting what we want is easy.

It’s easy to get things. There are very few of us who want something that hasn’t already been obtained by someone else. There are plenty of people who have blazed a trail ahead of us that we can study. There are successful people in your town who have done what you want. But, when you look at their life, it doesn’t exactly fit the image of a great life that you have in your head does it?

They do something different than you, act different than you or have a different circumstance that you you do.

And these things aren’t the things we want to have or do in our lives, which is why we don’t have what they have. But really, having what they have isn’t rewarding, if it means doing what they do. The trick is to have what we want, by doing what we want.

And that plan is hard to make.

Because no one has done exactly what we want, the way we want to do it. If you want to do something that everyone else has done, study them, do the things they have done, exactly and you will get what they have.

But if you want to really live, to thrive in life, figure out what you want to do, the way you want to do it, find the people who love it and do it for them in a way that only you can do.

There isn’t a plan for this, you have to write it.

But, it is way more rewarding than getting what someone else has.
