It’s ok to want for something more.
In your relationship, maybe you want:
In your work/career, maybe you want:
In your leisure time, maybe you want:
I’ve had conversations with 3 different people recently who ‘wanted’ something.
Client # 1 wanted a new job. She was afraid to leave the comfortable job she had but immediately looked into what she needed to do to change jobs anyway. (She has now left the old job and gone on to a new opportunity.)
Client # 2 wanted to book a session with me but saw no availability on the day she had in mind. She asked me if that day was booked full or if my online scheduler was just showing it as full. (I don’t normally coach on Fridays but when she asked I had nothing going on that day, so I gave her an appointment.)
(Potential) Client # 3 wanted to coach with me and was only available 6 hours out of the 168 hour week. (I work part time in customer service and schedule my coaching and Reiki clients around that. I was not available during those 6 hours as it coincided with my part time job. I offered early mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends as options for this potential client. None of those times worked so we are not proceeding with the coaching program.)
2 of the 3 people got what they wanted because a) they asked for it and b) they were willing to do what needed to be done in order to make it happen! My Dad always said ‘there is more than one way to skin a cat’. With 168 hours in a week, I would find a way to set aside ONE hour for coaching (or anything else) if it was something I really, truly wanted (even if I had to take vacation or go with less sleep).
I like to dream and scheme as much as the next person; more importantly however, I like to get shit done! I believe you can make excuses, or you can make things happen!! If you really want something, you need to stop waiting for someone to give it to you on a silver platter. Believe you deserve it and just go after it! There is no magic wand; you must take action!
“Sometimes in life you have to make things happen. You can change your life if you’re willing to let go of the old and actively look for the new. Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” ~Jane Green~
