What Do You Want?

Do you have what you really want in life?

Is something missing?

Does it feel like you’re going through the motions? Is your energy low?

Is the only thing that sounds good watching Netflix all weekend. 🙂

It’s possible to feel better and to have what you want.

For a long time, I felt that something was missing from my life. I went through periods of time when I felt numb and I was just going through the motions.

I wanted to feel better but didn’t know how.

The importance of deciding

Rather than feeling unhappiness, you can decide you want something different.

Deciding is the first step.

It sounds so simple, right?

You can decide. You can decide that you want something more.

Believing 100%

Believing is the single most important part of getting what you want.

Do you believe in yourself?

Do you believe you can have anything you want?

What do you believe?

Actions in alignment

Belief is important and it works alongside taking action.

You must take actions that are in alignment with your beliefs.

When you believe you can have what you want, watching Netflix all weekend doesn’t seem as attractive to you, you don’t feel the need to numb yourself, right?

When you believe you can be a successful designer with her own body of work, you spend your weekends creating your own work.

Exactly how you will get there is less important than your belief that you can.


Believing in yourself takes courage.

As Brené Brown teaches us: it takes courage to show up in the arena, we must be willing to be vulnerable.

Are you open to feeling your emotions? Are you willing to feel discomfort?

You may find yourself wanting to jump over “discomfort” to try to hang out in “happy” all of the time. But self-confidence requires us to feel the entire spectrum of feelings from joy to discomfort and everything in between.

Do you want to have more confidence in yourself? Do you want to reach your goals? Do you believe you can have what you really want?
