Here is a technique that will serve two purposes. One, it will help you fine tune exactly what it is you do want. Second, it will help you achieve what you want. It is very easy to do and does not take much time.
Simply make a list of everything and anything you want. As you write each item, quickly visualize what it would be like to have it. You do not need to spend much time, just a few seconds. For those who don't feel they are "good" at visualization, simply think about it for a few seconds. That will work!
Now, when I say everything - this means your longterm goals right down to the "little" things. Don't worry about being materialistic, or if you feel your goals aren't "worldly" or "important". They are to you and that is all that counts.
Do not show this list to anyone. Since it will be seen only by you, there will be less likelihood of you "censoring" it. If you believe someone might see it, then you are likely to feel that some of the things you place on it are selfish. This is your list, not something to be judged by other's values.
Then simply review your list each day. Actually, it works more quickly if you can take the time to quickly review it three times a day. When you achieve or receive something on the list - rewrite the list.
As you rewrite the list, you'll find that you'll make changes. You may have put down, `I want a new job'. Soon, you may find, `well...yes, I want a new job, but I really want a new job in such-and-such a field, and I need to make such-and-such a salary'. Later on, you may add more, such as where you want to work, the city and state, or even the hours you are willing to work.
By reviewing and changing your list, you actually start finding out exactly what you want. As you go along, you will be able to pinpoint specific goals, wants and needs.
The one thing I do need to mention is that you need to be somewhat realistic. If you put down you want a job that pays a salary of a million dollars a year, unless you realistically have the talent or ability - that's going to be a tough one. On the other hand, don't sell yourself short!
This technique does take three things: belief, expectancy, and desire. You have to believe that it is possible. Even if it is hard, but you know it could be possible then it will be effective.
Expect that it will happen - use positive thinking here! And, last of all - you need to want it. Do not be half-hearted about things. Let's say you place something on your list because it's something you believe you should put down, and not because you really want it. It won't be very effective. I know some of you will feel you should put down unselfish goals. Again, this is your list, and should reflect what you personally want and need.
Once you start being specific, you are more likely to achieve or receive actual results! Many of you may already use positive-thinking of "asking the universe" for certain goals and material wishes. Make these more powerful by being exact about what you want!
you have nothing to lose but a few minutes out of each day, or a few pieces of paper. You have everything to gain!
