How to Stop Settling For Less

by Jack Canfield

Decide What You Want

I know it sounds so simple, but here’s the problem: I see plenty of people who are overly-busy yet who feel unsatisfied and unfulfilled in their lives.

They are physically tired, spiritually drained, and they’re far from where they’d like to be—as if they’ve been running on a treadmill going nowhere fast. Why? Because they haven’t clearly mapped out what they want and then taken the necessary steps to get there. Rather than identifying specific goals, the milestones toward the achievement of their goals, and their dreams (and I’m talking BIG dreams and goals here), they go through the motions day in and day out tackling unimportant tasks. They end up…you guessed it…going around in circles and wasting lots of energy. In the meantime, they grow increasingly uninspired and out of touch with their authentic selves. This, of course, sets anyone up to living a life out of balance.

One of the main reasons why most people don’t get what they want is they haven’t decided what they want. They haven’t defined their desires in clear and compelling detail.

What does success look like to you? You know, not everybody’s definition of success is the same, nor should it be.

Chances are, you’re pretty clear about what you don’t want, but if you’re like most people I meet and work with, you haven’t given much time and consideration to what you do want.

I’m here to tell you that in order to create what you want in your life, you must first take the time to clarify your goals, and be specific in the process. So stop settling for whatever just happens to come your way in life, and start to take ownership of the fact that you can actively participate in the creation of your ideal future by clearly stating your desires as written, measurable goals.

The bottom line is this: If you don’t really know exactly what you’re asking for, then how can you expect to get it? So it’s imperative that you take the time to decide what you really want to create in your life, write it down, and be perfect and precisely clear about it. This is one of the most important first steps to creating the life of your dreams. So take it!
