"The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want."
Ben Stein- Author and Actor
If you are going to own your power and get what you really want out of life, you have to stop saying,
"I don't know;
I don't care;
It doesn't matter to me"
-or the favourite of teenagers, "whatever."
When you are confronted with choice, no matter how small or insignificant, act as if you have a preference. Ask yourself, if I did know, what would it be? If I did care, which would I prefer? If it did matter what would I rather do?
Not being clear about what you want and making other people's needs and desires more important than your own is simply a habit.
You can break it by practising the opposite habit. You can still care for others without compromising your own dreams and future. Know what you want, clarify it for yourself and then go get it. The power is in your hands.
