A philosopher once recorded the following on his voicemail: "This device is programmed to ask two simple questions: Who are you and what do you want? Most people live their entire lives without answering either one."
These powerful exercises will allow you to identify exactly what it is that you want out of life.
"I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is that I can't find anybody who can tell me what they want." - Mark Twain
There may be a little voice in your head that keeps asking questions such as the following:
"Is this it?"
"Is this all there is to life?"
"When do things get better?"
"When do I get to really start living my life?"
I know that a lot of people ask themselves these questions, because I was one of those people.
I'm Marelisa Fabrega, author of "Book of Possibilities" and owner of the popular blog, Daring to Live Fully. A few years ago I was working as a lawyer at a government agency. The work was incredibly demanding -- I was a labor attorney fighting union representatives non-stop; the pay was low; and my boss was utterly incompetent. In addition, I had gained a lot of weight and had no time for hobbies or other outside interests.
At one point I decided that I just couldn't go on living that way. I sat down and I searched for and developed exercises that could help me decide what I did want. I gathered those exercises in what is now "Book of Possibilities" and sat down to complete them. Since completing the exercises I've gone on to do all of the following:
I escaped the rat race, quit my government job, started working as a solo-practitioner, and started a blog.
I created additional sources of income by monetizing my blog and writing several eBooks.
I lost all of the weight I had gained - I'm now both a runner and a weight lifter.
I took up meditation again and started practicing Qigong and Tai chi.
I taught myself to draw.
I spend lots of time hanging out with the most important people in my life.
I started volunteering at a shelter for victims of domestic abuse.
I constantly give myself challenges, such as a challenge to raise my IQ, trying something new every day for 30 days, a 30-day declutter challenge, and a flat-abs in 30 days challenge.
In short, I've designed a life for myself that I love. And you can do the same. The way in which you start moving toward your best life is to begin by identifying what it is that you truly want. And the best way to discover what you want is through exercises designed to help you uncover your heart's desire. That's where "Book of Possibilities" comes in.
"The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want." - Ben Stein
Here's What's Inside . . .
"Book of Possibilities - Powerful Exercises for Uncovering Your Heart's Desires", contains sixteen exercises to help you determine what it is that you want from life. The exercises are the following:
Exercise 1 - Your Immediate Needs: At the moment your life might be in such a state of chaos that you can't even imagine what your ideal life might look like. If this is the case, then begin by identifying your immediate needs.
Exercise 2 - Go On An Archaeological Dig: Dig up your long-forgotten dreams and ambitions.
Exercise 3 - A Collage of Your Best Life: Images are a bridge between our emotions and our conscious knowledge. By creating a collage of images representing what you want from life, you'll allow yourself to express what you truly want, instead of simply going after what your logical mind thinks you should want.
Exercise 4 - Identify How You Want to Feel: Ultimately, everything we do is an attempt to feel a certain way. Some people want to feel self-actualized, others want achievement, others just want to be happy, and so on. Identify what you want by first identifying how you want to feel.
Exercise 5 - Reawaken Your Original Vision: When you were a kid, you knew what you wanted. Reawaken that knowledge.
Exercise 6 - Remember That Your Time Here is Finite: Follow John Keating's advice from the film "Dead Poets' Society": Carpe Diem! Seize the Day!
Exercise 7 - Chip Away At What Doesn't Belong: A lot of the time we don't go after what we truly want because of self-imposed limitations. In this exercise you'll be chipping away at those limitations.
"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat. "I don't much care where--" said Alice. "Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat. "--so long as I get SOMEWHERE," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
