Knowing What You Want

Knowing what you want and not knowing what you want are both tough cookies to deal with—just in different ways.

Not knowing what you want is a trek through your inner world and how you want to impact the outer one.

That could mean dealing with unknown or un-glanced fears. Are you unsure of what you want or are you afraid of going after it?

It could also mean dealing with inadequate thoughts holding you back from try. Are you unsure of what you want and don’t bother attempting because you think you won’t be good enough?

The better you know yourself, the better chance you have at not letting yourself hold you hostage. (And sometimes that means NOT giving yourself what you want and instead, becoming more comfortable with what you have.)

Knowing what you want is also not easy, because now you have to figure out how to get it—and make sure that going after it is actually what you want (see: inner world).

Knowing what you want is committing yourself to the craft, being willing to make mistakes, opening yourself up for learning experiences (even uncomfortable ones), sharing what you know, and staying consistent long enough to see it through.

In the end, knowing and not knowing are journeys. (Towards what is up to you in this moment.) They cross paths, they come and go, they interweave with others on their own journeys. We’re always traveling

You’re moving towards something, the question is, is it the direction you want to be heading.
