Wanting vs. Doing

 In Blog

I want the pizza. I eat the chicken.

I want the bread. I eat the sweet potatoes.

I want the cupcake. I eat the apple.

This may have be a familiar pattern to some of you. To others, not so much. You may see that you can want something, and that wanting has nothing to do with what you do. That might be a brand new experience for some of you.

You may notice that when you do say “no,” the worst moment is at that moment. The worst moment is the moment you say “no.” From there it actually gets better. You feel stronger. You know yourself as just a little more powerful. You appreciate what you’ve done for yourself.

You may also notice that when you say “yes,” the best moment is at that moment. The best moment is the fleeting moment it passes your lips and hovers in your mouth. From there, it usually only gets worse. Physical consequences, like upset stomach or overall feeling of unease, or emotional ones, like regret or disappointment. Unless you really prepare for a “yes” that thing rarely shows up like it did in your imagination.

You don’t need to be able to want, believe, trust, have faith, or know in order to do anything. You don’t need the threat of punishment and you don’t need the promise of reward.

You only need you. And that you’ve got. Go get ’em, tiger.
