Have you ever had the thought that everyone else gets what he or she wants, except for me? Well, therein lays the problem. Thinking thoughts like those are the exact thoughts that will push away the very things you want in your life.

Being Responsible

Now while being responsible may not sound like a whole lot of fun, it is one surefire way to get what you want in your life. When you take responsibility for your life and stop blaming circumstances or, worse, yet, other people, you will come to realize that your life will head in the exact direction you want it to and not away from you.

Take Action Steps

Rather than always thinking about what you want, how about taking action steps. If you want to change careers, take a class or two to see if your new career is something that you want to pursue.

If you want to be more social, join some groups, if you want to lose some weight start a walking club.

No matter what it is you want to do, action is necessary. However, do not start out overzealously only to fall flat. Feel free to indulge in baby steps. Any steps are better than no steps at all.


Use the Power of Your Mind

* Think positive thoughts

* Be grateful always

* Recall small successes so you can rely on that when you are feeling nervous or scared

* Be proud of yourself

* If you are spiritual, pray, share, and affirm others as well as yourself


Use Laser Focus

If you have a goal, the next step is an action plan with small steps but they must be daily steps. You cannot skip a day. Have someone hold you accountable every day for your daily action steps.

Focus on that thing that you want so badly and keep your mind on that at all times. If you feel yourself daydreaming, give yourself some time to daydream but set a limit. Make intentional time for family and loved ones, but if a friend calls you for the third time this week to talk about the same problem, spend your time wisely and focus on your goal.

Before you know it, you will achieve your goal and you will move on to the next one.
