Do You Know What You Want?

Do you truly know what you want? Is what you want based on what your neighbor has?  Is it based on what someone else wants for you? Is it based on what the latest fashion or entertainment magazine says you should have?  Or is it based on what your favorite celebrity says is in?

Do you have a say in what you want? Has want you want been decided for you by a parent, teacher, supervisor/manager, mentor, or relative?  Have your friends or colleagues dictated what you should want?  Are your wants based on your contacts at Facebook, Twitter and other such online sources?

Do you know how to get what you want? Have you been taught how to plan for what you want?  Is someone else dictating how you should go about getting what you want or even worse; is someone else “forcing” you to go in a direction you don’t want to go to get to what you want?

What are your wants? Are they material?  Spiritual?  Family?  Work Related?  Social?  Physical?  Emotional?  Intellectual?  Are your trying to fill a void with something that you think you want only to find out that it wasn’t what you wanted or needed?

Are your wants truly wants or are they needs? Do you know the difference between a need and a want?  Are you calling a need a want and a want a need?

Is what you want being dictated by what you don’t have? Is your desire for more causing you to overlook all that you have now and poisoning your ability to enjoy what you currently do have?

Are you willing to face that some of what you want may not be good for you?

Just some food for thought.
