My every desire is achievable

Desire means a strong feeling of wanting to have something, or wishing for something to happen.

What do you desire?

People always desire something ~ there’s something we always want ~ something we crave ~ something we desire ~ and when we get it, we always want more.

Why are we never content?

Humans are not designed to be happy, or even content. Our number one function is to survive and reproduce, like every other creature in the natural world. A state of contentment is discouraged by nature because it would lower our guard against possible threats to our survival.

So how do we achieve everything we desire? The real answer is we can’t. HOWEVER, we CAN try to achieve these things.

It gives us purpose ~ something to aspire to.

It gives us a goal in life ~ goals are important.

We don’t just want to meander through life ~ we want to learn new skills, have fun, make friends, make love, make memories ~ feel like we are contributing something. We want to live and not just simply exist.

How can we manifest those desires into a living, breathing reality?

By believing that our every desire is achievable, we are setting ourselves up to fail ~ so first of all, make sure that you are being realistic with what it is that you truly desire.

For example, many people desire that huge lottery win, they may even buy a ticket or two, or three or four, but what they need to understand is the actual reality of winning that jackpot is a 1 in 292.2 million chance. To put this in perspective, you have a 1 in 1.222 million chance of death from being struck by lightning in a given year.

Winning the lottery is a game of chance ~ it’s totally out of our control ~ so we need to focus on a desire that is within our control.

We need to begin by understanding who we are, by asking the relevant questions:

  • Who am I?
  • What do I want?
  • Where do I want to go in life? and,
  • What do I want to achieve?

Remove limiting thoughts ~ STOP being negative ~ try to adopt the positive ‘I can do’ mindset, rather than the ‘I can’t do’ defeatist attitude.

Be clear and realistic about what you want ~ dreams are good to have. However, to achieve them they have to realistically be within your reach, otherwise they will remain unattainable ‘pipe dreams’.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help ~ throw it ‘out to the universe’, and ask it those all important questions ~ or seek advice from family and friends ~ because if you don’t ask…you don’t get!

Believe in yourself, because you can do the things you want to do ~ you can achieve your goals ~ the more you believe in yourself the more your courage and determination will grow, your mindset changes, and it fills with a more positive outlook on life.

Practice the positive affirmations we give you every month ~ don’t just say them, understand them ~ learn the meaning behind those all important words and how you interpret them and incorporate them into your daily life. Words mean different things to different people.

Words are powerful ~ use them wisely

Acknowledge and appreciate the small wins on the journey of life. Every small win gets you closer to those big dreams. Dream your dreams with open eyes and make them come true.

Don’t dream your life ~ live your dream

We have a tendency to be a little impatient, yet know that ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ ~ things take time, especially when we’re talking about what we desire, our dreams, and generally, making a better life for ourselves.

Pace yourself ~ set yourself achievable goals ~ stay on target

REMEMBER - Be persistent and consistent. As Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses says: ”He who dares, wins” ~ so don’t be a plonker, go for it and things could end up being lovely jubbly! Who knows? For some lucky folk perhaps Lady Luck will be on your side with the winning lotto ticket ~ “this time next year we’ll be millionaires”!!! Cushty? Or maybe NOT…

‘Who Dares Wins’ is also the motto of the British SAS. The idea behind the motto is that if you have the courage and audacity to take risks, then you will succeed in life. It can also be interpreted that courage itself is its very own reward.
