If the 90s British pop sensation 'the Spice Girls' ever get remembered
for anything, I hope it's for bringing the question 'now tell me what you
want, what you really, really want?' to the mass consciousness

Now you may laugh at this, but when you really, really think about it, is
there a more important question you could ask yourself?

What is a want?

A want is a desire. Whether or not we get what we want is often based
upon the strength of our desires.

I know many will probably argue with this statement, but in some strange
way, there is a part of me that truly believes that we all get what we
want. If you really had a burning desire to change your reality, you
would do it, right? Well, I'd like to think so.

Now if you're convinced that it's time you actually started wanting more,
then allow me to share three simple but powerful secrets.

1. Know what you want.

If ever there was a personal development concept that was worth grasping
it's this one: know what you want. If you don't know what you want, do
you really believe that you have any chance whatsoever of getting it?

The sad reality of life is the fact that the majority of people in this
world don't know what they want. Even sadder is the fact that this is the
way most people prefer it.

If you aren't actively pursuing your own wants and desires, chances are
that you will become a statistic of un-fulfilment. Always remember that
your employer, government, financial institutions, family and peer groups
will all be trying to shape your life according to their wants, not
yours.

2. Ask for what you want.

Once you are clear about what it is you want, you've got to ask for it!

Can you imagine sitting in a restaurant, reading the menu, making your
selection, but not telling the waiter? What are your chances of getting a
meal? Pretty slim!

If you are clear about what you want, you need to start telling other
people about your aspirations. When you do this, you will find that
others will conspire to help make your dream a reality.

I've personally had countless experiences of people going out of their
way to help me once I had let them know what I wanted.

3. Expect to receive what you want.

It is also very important that you start to develop the mindset where you
just expect to get everything you ask for. When you set your brain a task
or embed an expectation, it will naturally seek a favourable resolution.

To extend our restaurant example, once you've placed your order you
create the expectation within your mind that you will get exactly what
you want. If the waiter didn't bring the meal you ordered, you'd
naturally send it back and wait till they brought you what you asked for.
Why not put this concept into practice in the other areas of your life?
You'll be pleasantly surprised by the results!

Success always has a price!

Once you have decided upon what you want, asked for it and established
the expectation of receiving it, the only thing left for you to do is pay
the price. Despite what many self-help gurus might have you believe,
success will not come to you without sacrifice. Be very aware of what you
are prepared to 'pay' in order to get what you want.

After all that, if your life still isn't serving you the banquet that you
want and deserve, just keep sending it back to the kitchen until it does!
