Have you ever met anyone who is unclear about what they really want in life?
Common responses when people are asked what they want in life include:
- Have more money.
- Be happy.
- Spend more time with their families.
- Get a better job.
- Have a successful career.
Most times, the responses people give are not what they really want but what they feel obligated or responsible to do. Going through life not knowing what we really want will very rarely lead to a meaningful and fulfilling life.
The challenge is those who are not clear on what they want have not given themselves the opportunity to discover what they really want. One of my mentors often says, “Most people are tiptoeing through life hoping to make their way to death safely.”
