Create a Want list

05.28.09

Advice

Need help attracting what you want? A great visualization tool I use is to create a want list.  Simply start listing things, circumstances, or relationships that you want to materialize in your life.  Free flow your desires and don’t censor yourself.

Your mind is a safe zone. There are no obstacles, limits, or judgments.  Don’t think, plan, or focus on the HOW!  Just think, choose and define the WHAT!  Ask yourself, “What is it that I truly want?” Big or small has no significance in this exercise.  Is your can opener broken? Put it on your list.  Would you love a whirlpool hot tub to unwind at the end of the day?  Put it on your list. This list is for you and you only.  No one will judge it.

Please know, this is not a wish list.  Wishes have the perception of being distant, unrealistic, and unattainable.  Don’t play a mind trick on yourself and sabotage the exercise.  The key is to BELIEVE you can attain the items on your list.  Your choices are not fantasy; they are not out of your reach.  The more you believe you can get them and visualize that you already have them, the more you will attract them to you.  Until one day, you get what you wanted and can cross it off.  I  LOVE crossing items off my want list and I get to do it all the time.

What do you have to lose?

Let’s give it a try. Write up a list and afterward select a few items that you deeply want.  Take a few moments to visualize what it would be like to have it in your hands or in your life.  Revel in it.  Each time you do this, you are bringing it closer to you.

For inspiration and guidance, I have included my current want list.  It is in no particular order of importance and there is no time limit on attainment, unless I choose to apply a specific timeline to one.

Remember, THINK BIG and don’t limit yourself!

Until next time,
Boni
