Basic Goals

We make the choices we do in order to support the goals we
have in life.

So, let's look at some of our basic goals.

The first one is survival.

Without that, there is nothing else.

We want personal power.

We want personal freedom.

We want to be at peace with ourselves.

We want to be happy.

We want to be acknowledged.

We want respect.

We want to be accepted.

We want to be loved.

Notice that none of those things are material things.

None of them cost a cent and we can have them all.

We don't have to depend on anyone outside of ourselves to give us these things.

No one outside of ourselves needs to give us these things.

We can give these things to ourselves.
They can all come from within.

Before we go on, I want to get something clear here.

I have people tell me that it sounds like I am being selfish
and self-centered with all of this.

In a sense, I am.

I believe that if we do not give to ourselves and take care of
ourselves, we will have nothing to give to anyone else.

I need to be stong in order to help someone who is weak at
this point.
I need to have abundance in my life in order to give to someone
who is without right now.
I need to have love for myself before I will really be able to give
love to anyone else.
I can not give what I don't have.

So, yes, I do believe in what I call generous selfishness.

I want to be happy.

I like helping people when I can.

Being able to help people makes me happy.

Am I being generous because I help people or am I being selfish
because I am doing something that makes me happy?

I happen to like win-win situations.

I want all of the different things that I listed above.

I know that all of the things I do go in the direction of haveing
those things.

I also know that I can have all of those things without it having to
be at to cost of someone else not having them.

We can all have them.

We really just want to be happy.

If it that simple, what's the problem?

Why aren't we all just happy?

The main reason is that most of us don't know what would make
us happy.

We know what makes us unhappy.

And we work hard on avoiding the things that make us unhappy.

What we end up doing is trying to be less unhappy rather than
going towards being happy.

Because of my past, I spent a lot of time trying to run away from
all of the unhappiness I had been raised with.

I had no idea of what being happy was all about.
Most of the people I knew were not happy.
I had no model to follow about being happy.
I thought it was all about excaping the being unhappy.

We do the same thing with a lot of areas of our lives.

If we were raised with a lack of material things in our lives, we tend
to work towards less lack rather than going towards abundance.

Most of us only look at issues about our health when we are not
feeling good.
We work at going away from feeling bad rather than going towards
having great health.

We spend more time going FROM what we don't want than we do
going towards what we DO want.

Take a few minutes and do the following exercise.

Take a sheet of paper and list at least 10 things that you DON'T want
in your life.

It can be about your finances.
It can be about your health.
It can be about your job.
It can be about your relationships.
It can be about how people treat you.
It can be about how you treat yourself.
It can be about anything that you want to avoid or get rid of in
your life.

Go ahead and list at least 10 things.

When you get done with that, come back here.

Now, take a different sheet of paper and list at least 10 things
that you DO want to bring into your life.

It can be about your finances.
It can be about your health.
It can be about your job.
It can be about your relationships.
It can be about how people treat you.
It can be about how you treat yourself.
It can be about anything that you want to have or bring into
your life.

Go ahead and list at least 10 things.

When you get done with that, come back here.

Which list was easier for you to write?

We are much more used to thinking about the things that we want
to get away from than we are about the things that we DO want in
our lives.

Remember, that is just something that we have done up to now.

We CAN turn that around.

We can start finding out what we do want in our lives.

Not only that, we can start getting what we want in our lives.

The next step is to get an idea what has been happening up to this point
so that we can make the changes that we will need to make.

Let's look at the mind.
