I used to think the idea of figuring out what we want might take me personally a whole life time . Figuring out what we truly want might be a huge task , but once you started to becoming aware and see things consciously , then it gets easier .
Most of us spend time wanting things because other people have it , the question is what are you really chasing ? . I once had a friend who went and get an M B A in business because someone she knows has it and successful with it , and on the long run she wasnt happy with her life .
Here are example of what i want to do .
Writing this essay / helping people to develop .
sitting on the sofa or beach reading
Cooking in a fancy kitchen , for family and friends
Collecting wine and sprinting in a cold winter .
All these aligned with my life and makes me a happy person .
You think you want those things ? The problem is wanting what other people have always lead to a miserable life .
Another good example is you had a night out with friends and they were all having beer or vodka , do you really want beer ? most of the time , you dont .
The idea of knowing what you really want and keep on working on it will lead to a happy successful bound life .
