What We Want Versus What We Need

One way to take care of yourself is by looking at what you want versus what you need.

You may ask – What is the difference between the two?  Simply put a want is something we hope will make us happy but rarely does and a need is something we require for our survival. 

Many people have all their wants and everything they go after, but they are not happy.  They feel successful but ask “Do I really need what I am chasing?”

When I took my motorcycle license I learned to never look at where I didn’t want to go because I would naturally move towards where I looked.  The lesson is if you don’t want it, don’t focus on it.

How would you feel if you worked hard to get something, only to discover you didn’t need it in the first place?  It really pays to stop and look at where you are going and what is best for you.

It’s very simple – the more you take care of yourself, the more you feel well taken care of.

When things aren’t going well for you try to uncomplicated your life and cut away more and more of the stress to arrive at the core of what makes you happy.

So I’m going to ask you to think about what you can do to uncomplicated your life, to think about what you want versus what you need.

 Sometimes the more simple life is, the more peaceful it is.
