Don’t Let ‘The How’ Gatecrash Your Party!

No I'm not talking about The Who I mean 'the how'.

I believe thinking of what you want and deciding you want to get it, is a habit. And if most people took an honest look at their behaviours and their results, they would find they’re not in the habit of getting what they want. You would probably find they are in the habit of settling for what they think they deserve or what they think is realistic.

This robs you of your freedom and happiness.

Society places massive emphasis on learning ‘how’ to do things, and whilst it is obviously very important, I think it is overused and misused.

Defining clearly what you want is so much more important.

And to do this, you need to forget about ‘how’ you are going to do it. You need to completely let go of any limitations which ‘the how’ will impose if you truly want to be free. You need to use your imagination.

‘The How’ is the plan and it is defined by our logic. ‘The How’ has its purpose to help us progress but it is often fully relied on in situations where it is way out of its depth. It is like an unwelcome guest at a party.

‘The How’ is a gate-crasher when it comes to deciding what you want.

Decide what you want only by what makes you happy.

Not having money to do what you want, to buy the house you want, to start the business you want, to go on a holiday you want, to invest in what you want, is a horrible idea. But in many cases, it stops people before they begin. Why?

Because your logic lies to you. Your logic is programmed to think through what it sees and hears in your environment. When it does this, it focuses on lack and limitation. Your logic can't see what's not there, but your imagination can! Focusing on how you want it to be using your imagination is key.

If you’re not careful your logic will keep you locked up. It will set your standards and decide your goals. This gate-crasher enters unseen and soon becomes the centre of attention without you even realising it.

Remember logic helps us go from A to B. It’s not meant to be involved in the decision making when it comes to your wants. Your wants are special to you and when they benefit you and others, nothing should get in the way. Especially not your logic.

Only imagination can set you free.

“To think what you want to think is to think truth, regardless of appearances.” - Wallace D. Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich.

So don’t accept it. Decide on what you want regardless of appearances and build a burning desire to get it. Remember Napoleon Hill stated desire is the starting point of all achievement. You can build a burning desire for anything you want; therefore, you are in full control.

I consistently see people struggle to detach from ‘the how’ and let logic decide their future. If they only focus on the money, time, skills, and experience they have at hand, well then, they'll never be able to go any further than you are now.

Well-known speaker and personal development leader, Jim Rohn, stated “we can have more than we’ve got because we can become more than we are.”

Do you focus on the current situation or on the end vision?

You can tap into greater potential and unleash more resources from within that are super powerful. In fact, more powerful than any army. If you’re not sure about this, recall Mahatma Ghandi's success in freeing India from British rule. He influenced the minds of a hundred million people; this clearly highlights the latent power inside each one of us.

The Universe has your back too. You will be supported with every resource you need to get what you desire. God wants us to win. God wants us to do our best work because we are doing God's work. God works through us. When you have a desire to do or to be someone, this is God speaking to you.

Every one of the Greats are great because they accepted their Greatness. Accept your greatness.

It is your birth right. It is your right to be rich. Don't let your logic get in the way, don't let it stop you. You have desires to be, to do and to have more. Accept them all. Know that all it takes is your will do it!
