Today I was thinking about how much joy I am living in because I just choose to take action and make this blog happen.
It started me thinking about our wishes versus our wants. Successful action vs inaction.
When we talk about success, what does that really mean? Is it an euphemism for sometime later? Or is it taking action? And that brought a point to bear for me.
When we wish for something, I think that is the equivalent of saying I wish I was at the beach right now. So it’s not something we necessarily do, we just entertain the thought. And it brings us some comfort, but its fleeting.
And then we feel somewhat victimized because, well we just don’t get to the beach. So wishes becomes the fluff of the magic genie. Something out there, we cannot quite define. Perhaps its even in the realm of fantasy and magic. And most times when we wish for something we don’t quite get there.
But then, there is the WANT! Now if I really wanted to get to the beach I would figure out exactly what I needed to be laying in the sun, watching the ebb and flow of the ocean.
See where this thought is going?
So is success our want or our wish? Do we truly want it in a way that drives us to perseverance and determination? Even when we are tired and can’t face another moment of fixing our daily logistics, do we want our success enough to act? To stay committed to our want?
And that is the want.
The ACT of doing
I think each of us who have chosen to participate fully in our own lives are really starting to define our want.
Now is the next step, the proverbial hard part, keeping the want forefront and vibrant.
So today I think I am going to make a list of what my want truly looks like, not just in terms of goals, But what I want that will make me successful in my spirit, mind and body. And I will make it very specific because then it is not a wish, it has full definition and action. It is me claiming my WANT.
So what is your next step in your want? Success for real, or success as a wish?
Let’s start this conversation and then check in with each other to see where we are in our specific want.
In peace and gratitude,
