What Is It You Really Want?


You and I live in a fully stocked candy store. There are aisles and aisles of every kind of candy on display. There are chocolates and caramels, taffy, suckers, candy bars, wrapped candy and un-wrapped candy, cotton candy and candy on a stick. There’s even an ice cream section that overwhelms the senses. Wide-eyed, we race around the store trying to decide which treat is going to be ours.
Our world is stocked just like that candy store, chocked full of possibilities. The Universe is on call and available to satisfy your bidding 24/7, accessible to satisfy your deepest cravings.
I would venture to say few give any serious consideration to knowing exactly what they want. Your desires, your needs and wants cannot be filled unless the order is crystal clear and to the point. So, let me ask again…

What do you want?

But, wait. Don’t some think that wanting is a questionable, greedy, and even wrong? Isn’t it selfish, arrogant and uncaring of others to want for yourself?

Wallace Wattles, the author of “The Science of Getting Rich*,” may shed some in sight to this uncertainty. He says,

            “The purpose of nature is the advancement and unfoldment of life, and everyone should have all that can contribute to the power, elegance, beauty, and richness of life.”

Wattles goes on,
            “Every person naturally wants to become all that they are capable of becoming. This desire to realize innate possibilities is inherent in human nature; we cannot help wanting to be all that we can be. Success in life is becoming what you want to be.”

It sounds to me as if wanting a pretty normal thing.

However, knowing what you want precisely is the key to getting it. Saying you want a million dollars doesn’t fulfill the key. Saying what you intend to give in return for the million dollars gets a bit closer. Saying you want a million dollars, what you intend to give in return for the million dollars and how you intend to use the money gets even closer.

So, you can see that just wanting something without the necessary qualifiers leaves your wants vague, undefined, and subject to the whims of the Universe. Fuzzy in, fuzzy out.

The clearer you are on your wants the more the Universe has to work with. The clearer you are on your wants the more obvious the action you must take. The clearer you are on what you want the greater possibility of your fulfillment and satisfaction.

So, what is it you said you want?
