I don’t know about you but to declare what I want to be, do, and have caused me to have a reaction simply because we are taught to not want anything and just exist. Anytime I share something I want, I get some kind of negative response from the other person: that’s not possible or reasonable or realistic or something to that effect.
I’ve been working on my mindset stuff for years now and I have always had this innate optimism that knows what I want is possible and brings the teachers I need into my life. I also learned that it’s okay to declare what you want to be, do and have, set goals, and go after them.
What do I want to be, do and have? And by when?
Reflections, Thoughts, Feelings
Who do I want to BE?
I am slowly learning to unmask and shed more layers to get to the core of who I already am. I want to be me unapologetically but I also know that this question is maybe a little bit bigger.
Bigger as in terms of a successful business owner that helps people with their goals, journaling, and selling my art. Here’s the thing though I believe I already am successful. I am making money doing the things I love to do and perhaps in terms of the society that means having an expectation of making a specific amount a month or a year.
I want to be a contributor to someone’s success – not a guru but a collaborator that helps my clients achieve their personal or professional goals.
What do I want to do?
In essence, all that I am doing already. I write books, I make art, I write a blog, I help people and I do all of that because I want to and well because I can honestly. I think someone once told me that I can’t do what I wanted to do and I pretty much scoffed at am because why are people so insistent on smashing someone else’s dream?
I also want to travel in a camper – more specifically in a VW Camper – a few times a year. I want to attend concerts and festivals at a VIP level and sponsor people and organizations I believe in to help them be successful in their endeavors. One of my friends is a bare-knuckle fighter and his story is one of overcoming addiction and doing what helps him cope but also fuels his passion. The fact I was able to support him financially means a lot to me because, well I didn’t get that during times that I could have used a hand like that.
What do I want to have?
There are definitely a few things on my horizon, one of them being a new car as my little hamster mobile isn’t getting any younger and we keep adding miles to it. The other is a new house with more acreage. We are looking at 10 acres or more to have a bit of a homestead, away from people, and a place to have our workshops to make our art and maybe even host retreats or classes too.
Here’s the thing, your wants for the be, do and have goals don’t have to be outrageous or crazy. They can be whatever you want them to be.
