How to Get What You Want in Life
Just follow these three simple steps:
Step 1: Figure out what you want.
Think about what makes you happy, who you admire, what you need, who you are, and who you’d like to be.
Think about how you want to spend your time. What you want to explore. Who you want to impact.
Think about the path to get there. What you need to learn, who you need to meet, where you need to go, and what you need to do.
Step 2: Consider the reasons you can’t have it.
Think about the resources you don’t have, the advantages you weren’t given, and the reasons you’re not the kind of person who gets what you want.
Think about the times you’ve failed, that you’ll likely fail again, and the problems that new failure will cause.
Think about how scared you are to try, how embarrassing it is to admit what you want, and the criticism you’ll face.
Step 3: Say “Fuck it” and go do it anyway.
That’s how you get what you want out of life. Good luck.
