Wanting, Found Wanting
We begin using the words, “I want” around age 5. It’s not hard to spot a child who has found them. Stand near a discount store checkout line on a Sunday afternoon, you’ll soon see a child reaching and hear the “but I want it” whine.
Are you in that “wanting” stage with your business and your life?
We all want things for our success. We want to achieve, to believe we’ve made a difference by the work we’ve done. We reach for ways to grow our relationships and our incomes. Sometimes we yearn for whatever meets our eyes. Wanting has an effect on a business and a life.
Positive or negative depends on “the why.”
If we’re wanting to grow a meaningful life or a business, accomplishment brings satisfaction. We celebrate before we find the next mountain to climb. If we’re wanting to measure up, we may achieve the world’s esteem, but the result will be found wanting in our eyes.
How do you keep your positive wanting and lose ideas that you’ll be found wanting?
