You Don't Want What You Want

Nov 9, 2007
I hear lots of people say they want this or they want that. They tell me all types of stories about their dreams and desires and a bunch of crap. How can I call it crap? I can call it crap because they tell me it is, and you are no different.

You are probably wondering what I'm talking about and that I don't have the right to say that you don't want what you want, and you would probably be right. I don't have the right to say that about you. After all, I don't even know you.

However, I have met more than enough people who have tried to convince me that they want this and that and are willing to do what it takes to realize that 99% of the people out there, probably including you, are just blowing smoke.

Most people do not want what they want and even if the words coming out of their mouths say differently, their actions speak so loudly that I can't hear a word they are saying. People will tell me they want this and they dream about that, then they will fall back into habits that do not serve them and certainly will not get them what they want.

Chances are you are no different. I don't say this to attack you or to make you feel bad or defensive. I say this to open your eyes so that you can see if you are blowing smoke or not and if you are really doing what it takes to get what you want.

If you tell me you want a million dollars then go home and watch television until it's time to go to work tomorrow, you are actually telling me that you are full of crap. If you tell me that you want to be a pro sports star and then don't type of physical activity, your actions are speaking louder than your words again.

This is like a convicted criminal in prison telling me they want to be free, then they go and stab someone in the kitchen. Or someone who cheats on their spouse saying that they will never cheat again as they whistle at the next hottie that walks by.

Make sure that what you are saying, what you want, and what you are doing are all in alignment with one another. If they are not, you are only fooling and lying to yourself. The rest of the world really doesn't care if you make the million dollars you say you want or not. But at the end of the day you do because it's your life your are creating, or not creating.

Decide what you want, then do everything you can within your power every single moment of every single day to move forward and make that thing you want a part of your life and your reality. Don't tell yourself you want this, then do nothing about it. Don't say that you want to be happy then whine about the way things are without taking action to change you and your life.

Decide what you want, and then decide to get it. Tell people you want to have this or that as you walk past them to do the next step toward getting it. Be one of those 100 people I see on a regular basis who is really moving toward what they want. Not one of those 99 who live ordinary, normal lives full of lies and smoke clouds.
