I can't help you

Imagine you are at a restaurant, you have a menu, you read it, you know what's available. The server asks for your order, but you're not entirely sure what to ask for so you ask for another minute. You know you're hungry, you just don't know what you want to eat. The server returns and you say to him I'm hungry. That's all you can tell him. Well, he can't help you.

In our quest for fulfillment and motivation, we must first be clear what we want from anyone, anything or any situation. This is the first step in any new direction we want to take or any change we want to make. Simply knowing what we don't want will not get us the change we desire. And being unclear about what we want can bring about undesirable results. We must be clear.

In our restaurant example, not being clear will not get us what we want to eat. It may actually not even get us any food. Once you know that you want to make a change, getting specific not only will help you discern right from diverted action, it will send out signals and put you at the right place, with the right people under the right circumstances in a synergistic and synchronistic fulfillment of intentions. In other words, clarity of intention clears the way for you. You will not waste time and will know what to do.

Take the time to decipher what you want. Another job? Do you want it in your current career field or in  something completely different? Do you want to lose weight? Or do you want to lose ten pounds in ten weeks? Do want to be healthier? Or do you want to have more energy to play with your kids or to lower your cholesterol? Do you want to have more fun? Or do you want to travel once a year to a different place, learn to dance salsa or play golf with your friends once a week? Whatever it is, name it. Otherwise the Universe will respond with I can't help you.
