(for some reason this never got posted dunno why:/..but enjoy )
What is it that you want??….what do you want most in the entire world..?is it something lavish or grandeur?..or maybe it’s something simple…? what ever it is…the question I bring to you is, do you really want it?? or is it merely an idea floating around in your head to help you escape the reality that you loath?…
The title of this post has been stuck in my head for over a week now..and it’s proven itself to be quite prevalent..I’m sure in your head you’re saying “of course I really want what I dream about” or “what do you mean you never want it until you want it?” I’ll explain..
Most people say they want success or anything else they tell you they want for that matter..but the truth is, they don’t…very few people actually have that drive to push for a reality no one else sees…and I call it a reality because to them it is as real and as tangible as the very skin on their bodies…getting back to why most people say they want something but don’t really want it as bad as they think they do…people are accustomed to not having..so to them having something isn’t a reality they are really willing to deal with…I guarantee you if you give a person the opportunity to have what it is they want in life 8 times out of 10 they’ll choke…and the reason they choke is that, they realize, the thing that they want is right within their grasp but they’re too afraid to reach out and hold it…LeBron James is a perfect example of what I’m talking about..just recently he had the chance of having a championship ring..something he said he always wanted..but he faltered when he needed to step up…and you have a lot of people who are like this…I’m not trying to discredit persons like this, I’m simply illustrating a point so that it’s understood….
But that’s not why I’ve taken the time out to grab your attention today….I’m writing this to etched a thought or question rather, into your being…”do I really want this?” if so how bad do you want it?…it wasn’t until a few days ago I really made up my mind that I really want my dreams to come true…before, I had doubt…you have people in this world you know from the very moment of conception that “I want this and I’m willing to do any and everything to get it no matter the circumstance“….and it is these persons that go on to become a Bob Marley, Will Smith, Chris Gardner and so forth…dedication, determination, discipline, and desire…..these traits bring to us success…
Dedication to get the work done
Determination to see it through
Discipline to have the patients to inure the times of struggle
Desire to never give up
“You never want it until you WANT it“
because it is in that moment you make up your mind that if both heaven and hell conspires to stop you from achieving your dreams…they’ll have to die trying….
Nothing can come between you and what you want except you….there’s this passage from my favourite book ” The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelh it goes “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it” and that’s because as stated in another part of the book “There is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe…. The soul of the world is nourished by people’s happiness”
So I leave you with this question… do you really want it??? *cynical grin*
