Most of us have little problem answering the question “what do you want in life”?
Some will say wealth, and some will say true love. Others will say health, a beautiful home, a nice car, or a successful career, or a family.
All are perfectly good answers and there is no reason why they cannot be achieved.
When I ask clients “Who Is It You Desire To Become” most have to take time to process the question. After a few moments, many say they are fine with whom they are, they just want a better life. They will then proceed to describe many of the above conditions, which they feel will produce this better life.
It usually starts with “ Well if I only …(fill in the blank) then I would be happy”. Then the description of the conditions would follow.
What is not being understood and accepted here is that conditions must follow conditioning. In other words, for you to acquire something in your life you must set the conditions within yourself first. It is only then that you will have the ability to create what you desire to become.
Possibly you have heard the example about attracting love. It is said, “ You must become the person you want to attract.” If I desire to attract a loving, affectionate, beautiful, funny, … (I have a long list) woman as my soul mate, then I must become this within myself. You will attract that which you believe yourself to be.
The same goes for all your desires in life. If you desire wealth, happiness, and health, then you must know yourself as such. By becoming what you desire you become a magnet.
I ask you now. Who Is It You Desire To Become? If you cannot give a description in perfect detail along with the feeling of already having it, then you are just treading water.
This is the first place I start when working with a new client. I don’t go much further until the client knows what he or she desires in their health, fitness, and wellness.
This statement is a declaration of what we together are going to achieve. From this statement we can then create a plan to move forward.
People are afraid to really let go and admit to what they desire, because they realize there will be some work to do on their part to achieve it. They are right of course, but what is so off-putting to some work if it will create the life you have always desired?
You are not meant to dream and sit on your hands all day in hope that it will just happen. That’s not how it’s done, not if you want to experience it in the physical world.
Interestingly, so many of us go to work for someone else and work our tails off, while thinking “I should be doing this for myself”. In this case you are working for someone else’s dream are you not?
We need to create the motivation within ourselves to become who we desire to be. Taking this action is going to be a bit uncomfortable for many, but so worth it.
I encourage you to take the time to find a quite space away from all distractions, and begin to express who you desire to become. Not what you want, those are just things. I want you to step out and ask yourself “Who do I really want to become? What would it feel like to be this person? What would my life be like?”
Write it all down in as much detail as possible. Describe the feelings that go along with this new you. Then I want you to refine the statement into a paragraph. Make it in the present tense as if you are living it right now.
When you’re done with this I want you to email me your “Statement of Gratitude” for your new life. In the subject line of the email write “Who I Desire To Become”.
I will choose the 5 best statements, and email you back with tips and directions for the next step.
Here’s a clue. Part of who you desire to be should include your health, fitness, or wellness.
I can’t wait to read your “Who I Desire To Become”.
I wish for you Vibrant Health.
