Do You Know How To Get What You Want?

Do you know how to get what you want out of life?

This might sound like a trick question.

The majority of people (over 80% according to the book The Passion Test) ) are not passionate about what they are doing, then this means a lot of people don’t have the answer.

The truth of the matter is that most people really know what to do, they just don’t do it.

Most people spend their time hoping and wishing that they could win the lottery, get that dream job, find their soulmate or have their ultimate lifestyle.

The formal education system  calls you a cheater or loser if you ask other people for help or the answers.

In the real world of business many experts tell you to find someone (mentor) who has achieved everything you want to achieve and simply model them.

Basically you are copying their strategic process of success.

I don’t know about you but when I was growing up I was taught to get a good education, get a good job, work hard, be honest and everything will work out.

The formal education system was a challenge for me because I’m a practical learner.

What is the right thing to do?

Do you have a personal development plan for your life?

Robert Kiyosaki, businessman famous author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, had an expression, “You have to become bigger than your problems.”

What Mr. Kiyosaki was referring to in this quote was that you have to develop yourself in orderfor you to be able to handle the problems you will inevitably face in life and business.”

If you don’t have a well prepared personal development plan, then I strongly urge you to get busy putting one together.

The more you want success you want to experience the more you have to develop yourself.

Your personal development plan is like going to the gym, it is something you have to work on daily.

You have to nurture your mental, emotional, spiritual and intellectual muscles.

If you read the autobiographies of any successful person ( I recommend you do this) you will find that all successful people worked on themselves daily.

The return on investment in yourself is infinite.

Have you ever heard of the parable of the sower

How to get what you want in life is one of the hidden messages in the parable of the sower.

Jim Rohn, the famous business philosopher, used this story often as an  example for anyone to know how to get what they want.

It is the story about a farmer who goes out into his field planting seeds (think of these seeds as your ideas or the work you do) and he sows an entire field.

One day some birds come along and take some of the seeds.

Mr. Rohn always said that if you chase the birds you leave the field.

You go back out and sow more seeds to replace the ones the birds took.

The thorns kill some of your seeds.

You go back out to the field and sow more seeds.

The sun will wither and dry out some of the seeds.

You go back out and sow more seeds.

Some of the seeds will land on rocky ground, not take root and die.

You go back out and plant some more seeds.

Here’s the secret.

You never, never give up and you keep going.

Did you ever notice that the lessons of nature have a lot of similarity to the lessons in life?

The farmer had to go sow the seed, sow even more seeds to compensate for what was lost, nurture the plants and only then did he get to harvest a crop.

The same principles apply to your business.

You always have to do the work before you reap the reward.

Brian Tracy, business coach said that “if you want to be successful you have to pay the price up front and in full.”

Why does how to get what you want seem so complicated?

What is one of the first things some one usually does when they come across a great idea?

Often times you first try to dissect it and then they go try to figure out a better way to do it, even when the formula is right there in front of you.

Have you ever tried to do that?

Go back to when you were young and growing up.

For the first 12-16 years (16 or more if you go to university) in the formal education system you are told to learn and figure it out for yourself.

You are not allowed to ask for help or to copy other’s.

That’s up to 16 years of being conditioned with the same message.

What do people do when that great idea kicks in to their mind?

They go try to figure it out on their own.

Is it starting to make a little sense now why everyone does this?

It’s conditioning.

How To Design Your Destiny

Stop thinking that it is rocket science and you can’t do it

I know that it is difficult to unlearn from all the conditioning that you were exposed to in the first 20+ years in life.

This is why a personal development plan is so vital.

It helps you to better understand where you are getting stuck and how to shift the limiting beliefs about yourself.

If you don’t have a powerful belief in yourself then you will always fail.

Do you know people who  go around always trying to satisfy everyone so they will be liked?

The path of least resistance does not provide you with personal growth, it makes you lazy and complacent.

This is where mentors can help you.

People who have been in the trenches and struggled through the obstacles, and trust me there will be obstacles.

Mentors will help you create a blueprint but you have to put in the work.

There is no shortcut to success, so stop looking.

There is no substitute for hard work.

You have to invest into your business and you have to invest in yourself.

Embrace the journey and you will realize that you have enough within you to face any challenges along the way.


How you can create successful online business ideas

It is interesting that often times when people jump online  they try to figure it all out on their own, especially when you consider it is a place they really know nothing about.

Software, training, tools, systems, resources, plugins, websites and other forms of technology.

It’s no wonder people get confused.

If you want to build a successful online business you really need to find a mentor(s)  as there are so many things you need to learn.

The good news is that technology is getting simpler even with some of the more advanced online tools.

The technology engineers have finally figured out that the average person will never make it through the learning curve to achieve success because of all that complex technology.

If you want to know how to get what you want you have to first know what it is that you do want.

Sounds simple, right!

Not exactly.

Most people know what they don’t want.

If you need proof, just ask a dozen people and listen to their answers.

If your intention is to build a successful online business then you need to have an idea, a vision of the outcome and a plan of action to put in motion.
