What Is the Why of Your Desire?


  1. WOW! What an amazing article! There have been times I have asked myself why I want something, but reading this article really made me think a LOT about why I desire it…the real why…digging deep within myself. Here is what I have discovered…

    I want to become a certified grief recovery specialist. Why do I desire to do this? I have buried two children early in my marriage. That was a great loss which I have had difficulty in understanding. However, God has miraculously allowed me to take these losses and begin to help others through their journey of grief. Now, the depth of my why…everyone experiences loss and must grieve. As humans we typically associate grief with death, but that is not the only time we grieve! We grieve with ANY loss…i.e., the loss of a job, the end of a friendship, losing your keys…all of these things bring us to the journey of grief is some form. We cannot go above, below, or around our emotions…we can only go through them. Time doesn’t heal anything and if we do not take action, we become stuck in the journey and the result is more loss. I want to truly help people take each step in this journey and turn those stumbling blocks into stepping stones to their ultimate goal! This is the why of my desire. I do believe I will find the $2000 to get the certification that I desire to truly help others…the action steps I am taking to achieve this goal is to not wait on the certification to begin helping, but draw from my own personal experience and offer support even before the certification comes into my hand.

    Thank you for writing this article! God bless you!

    1. Regina, thank you so much for sharing- what an experience! But you are right, you have to go through your emotions; to heal you have to feel the pain and let it move through you, to attract what you want, you have to connect with the feelings/energy of your desire. You are also right that we grieve with any loss. Great awareness, and let me tell you, you are on the right track to attracting your life purpose and career. Keep up the good work, and yes you don’t have to wait to get the certification to start doing your life’s work, in fact by doing it first, the Universe will support you totally and bring you everything you need in order to succeed. I am still in the process of getting my coaching certification, but I am doing the work already, and the journey is exhilarating. I have been attracting everything I need (and more), I feel totally blessed and supported.

  2. When I ask myself “why,” my desires come up with happiness.
    In order to cater to my desires I’m one of those people who enjoys feeling everything. I like being angry, and depressed as much as I like the adrenalin of extreme sports.
    Bruce Lee said, “Defeat is a state of mind; none is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.” I agree,
    Thank you for the thought provoking post.

  3. I have done many things in my life. I have been a stage actress for 15 years, producer for seven years, sports agent, for four years, development directorf for 8 years and now in my own business for over 20 years. I am now a published author, coach, motivational speaker and have a true desire to move on or move back. I am hardly as young as I was, but acting is still the love of my life. I have two marvelous grown up children and we are very close. Why do I still want to be an actress. Of course, I will not be able to get all of the parts I would want at this point in time, but aching for the creativity of theatre is constantly with me. I am still into causes, and violence is one of them. I want to go into schools, where there is underpriviledged children, age 6 to 9 and teach them the value of self-love. I want to start a team, who will be willing to join me.
    I know that these thoughts are always in my mind, and I have been working on them. The way I can get what I want is because I believe I have the talent and ability to entertain and help others.
    I am also writing a second book. I know that these dreams can come true, because truth is my brand. Thank you for reading my desire.

  4. Sylvia, I loved reading your desire, I could feel the energy behind it-keep energizing your dreams with the positive thoughts and they have to come true. Thank you for visiting and sharing! Xox 😉
