We end up not getting what we want most because we are so focused on what we want now.
Make a list of what you want MOST.
Here is a sample.
A strong heart
Enough money to retire when I am 67 1/2
My kids to be leaders
A vacation in Alaska paid in cash
Ok take each one and bring it back to now. I want to eat vegetables. I want to do Kung Fu. I want to save 10% of my pay into an IRA. I want to spend time with my friends by doing a project for habitat for humanity. I want to be a Boy Scout leader for my son or Girl Scout leader for my daughter. I want to set aside $100 per month for my trip.
Yes this is what I want to do NOW.
The other what I want to do now just evaporates once I do it. No greater most. Just a greedy, impatient now.
So what do you want NOW?
Congratulations. Thanks for reading.
Your homework is to ask yourself
What do I want MOST? Let that create the NOW.
