What Do You Want?

By: jwilder

This sounds like a simple question, but it has proven difficult for me. It was difficult only because I tried to word my dreams in a way that seemed less selfish.

In some ways we believe we should avoid wanting anything specific. Maybe it seems selfish to want specific things. Maybe it feels more spiritual to not want anything. Maybe we think we don't deserve what we want.

I recently modified my personal "dream" statement to address the question "What do I want?" It felt way more honest. Since I devote much of my time to pursuing my "dream," I want to be as clear as possible. I want to shine as much light as I can so I can stand on solid ground.

Getting clearer on what I truly want lines up with my definition of success:

"Success is living a life of integrity while pursuing your dreams in a way that serves others."

A strong foundation will protect what we build from the storms of life.

To your success!
