5 Ways to Get Everything You Truly Need


I love the website. We’ve paraphrased their post here but click on the link to read their full post. Enjoy.

1. Open the door to infinite possibilities by helping others: You can get almost everything in life you need if you simply help enough people around you get what they need. …Bottom line: Live so that your life is not defined by what you have acquired, but by what you have given away… not by what is etched on a gravestone, but what is etched in the lives and hearts of those you have helped.

2. Dedicate time to meaningful work: … A focused human being driven by passion is always more powerful than the reality of the moment. Express your love. Live your truth. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards meaningful goals. Walk your talk. Embrace your gifts. Bounce to the beat of your own drum. Work on something worth remembering.

3. Be willing to be vulnerable: …Be vulnerable. Allow yourself to feel, to be open and authentic. Tear down any emotional brick walls you have built around you and feel every unique emotion, both good and bad. This is real life. This is how you welcome new opportunities. Vulnerability sounds like honesty and feels like courage. Honesty and courage aren’t always the easiest choices, but they’re never the wrong ones.

4. Ask yourself the right questions: Stop looking outside yourself for the answers. Start asking yourself the right questions. … This process starts on the inside, not somewhere else. Much of this can be accomplished simply by asking yourself the right questions. Start with these:

“Who am I?”
“What do I need?”
“How do I function best?”
“What do I have to give?”
“What’s the next step I can take right now?”
Obviously, there are many other questions you can ask as well. It’s all about self-inquiries that help you stay true to your principles, pursue your passions, grow through adversity, and add value to the world around you.

5. Take a few tiny steps forward every single day: Take a step now, then another, and keep on stepping. You are responsible for getting what you need in life. It always comes down to your actions in the present moment. You choose: either action and results, or inaction and excuses. You can’t have both. …Know that the pain of discipline and persistence is far less than the pain of regret. No one has ever given their needs their best shot and regretted it.
