Make an I want List
One of the most effective techniques to determine exactly what you want is to get someone that you trust to ask you the following question:
What do you really want from your life?
Let them repeat the exercise for 10 -15 minutes and during the exercise write down all the answers that come to mind. A far better way of doing this exercise is to utilize a recording device to record all your answers and then to listen to what came from the exercise a little later.
All the wants that will come forward are not really that profound, but as the exercise progresses you will be amazed at what actually comes out. Initially you will hear things like “I want a BMW, or I want a big house, etc”, but as you progress through the exercise you will start hearing the real you and your real wants will begin to emerge. You will start hearing things like, Ï want people to love me, I want to truly express myself, I want to make a real contribution, I want to make a difference to the world, I want to be powerful etc. The wants that will emerge during the later part of the exercise will reflect your core values and be an expression of your mission or purpose.
Sit comfortably opposite someone you really trust and get them to ask you this question over and over for about 15 minutes.
The best way to facilitate this exercise is to record all your answers for analysis and interpretation later. If you are unable to record the exercise then it is acceptable to write your answers down after each question. Once you have completed this exercise carefully assess all your answers and see which of your answers truly reflect your inner feelings. Next assess which of your answers feel comfortable to you and are aligned with your core values, mission and purpose.

Decide With Crystal Clarity Exactly What You Want
Decide what you want, chances are it wants you too. One of the most amazing phenomena you will experience when you invest time to discover exactly what you want in your life. Is an unexpected phone call, an unexpected financial windfall or benefit, or a new acquaintance that brings you exactly what you want or need, to achieve one of your Goals? All these events seem to occur almost as though they are planned.
There could be a number of reasons for this happening, once you are actively building awareness around what you actually want to achieve. Could it be the universe is rewarding your new positive habits, beliefs and action orientated attitude. The most likely explanation though is that your subconscious is far more focused and you are far more attuned to see opportunity when it presents itself. You need to believe that when you have the correct habit set, attitude, deep rooted belief and desire to achieve something, everything you need to achieve your goals will gravitate toward you.
The reason you have not got exactly what you wanted until now is that you have not ever really decided precisely what you want. You need to decide in compelling detail exactly what you want. Until you create a crystal clear picture for your subconscious mind, how can you expect your brain to start searching for and guiding you to discover what you need.
