What do you want?

This was the first question Suzie heard when she went to see her life coach.

This was Suzie’s first experience with a life coach and she wasn’t really sure what to expect.

What do you want? Asked the Life Coach.

With that, Suzie felt her eyes well up and she blurted out – I don’t know.

I know I don’t want this and I don’t want that and nor do I want the other.

Well, said the Life Coach – now you’ve told me what you don’t want – what do you want.

Now, continued the Life Coach –

What’s in your head?

What’s in your heart?

What’s in your gut?

What’s going on inside you?

All this was too much for Suzie and she broke down in tears. Suzie had been battling many of life’s challenges for a number of years and all she could think about was escaping from it all.

Somewhere from deep within she knew there had to be a better life but she had no idea what she did want.

After some more conversation, the Life Coach helped Suzie to work out what she did want. She helped Suzie phrase her stated goal in a positive and simply way so much so things began to become clearer to Suzie.

Finally, she could see exactly what it was she wanted. Everything seemed so clear now and she discovered she felt so much better. The ache in her heart was gone, as was the pain in her stomach.

Now she could focus on what she did want and this opened up new possibilities and opportunities. This, for Suzie, was amazing.

So now you know what you want looks like, now you know what it feels like and what others are saying about you, you are better equipped to go for it – mostly because you know what you’re chasing.

You get what you focus on so, for Heaven’s sake, why not focus on what you want.
