Don’t Ever Want, Wish or Hope for Anything

Ok, I have a 2.5 year old baby girl and a 6.5 year old son. They are constantly telling me what they want. “I want this, daddy! I want that, daddy!” What they don’t realize is that wanting, hoping and wishing for things, just don’t work. It would seem that most adults don’t realize this either, so it inspired this blog post.

When you want, wish or hope for anything, what happens is the universe listens… and you receive the feeling of “wanting, wishing or hoping”… you DON’T actually GET what you are wishing, wanting and hoping for. Instead you get the feeling and experience of wanting.

“So, Travis”, you say… “How are we to manifest our desires then?”

Well, this is tricky… Instead of wanting, wishing and hoping… you DECIDE in advance the outcome you desire. You CHOOSE for things to be. When you focus on your decision and your choices, then the universe and God work in a different way. It combines effort with your subconscious mind to help you FIND the way to make your desire occur.

It is better to give your mind decisions and choices, as it can work FOR you, instead of AGAINST you as it does when you are wanting, wishing and hoping.

Does this make sense?

This is truly “The Secret” to making things happen for you in this life. Decide in advance. Create the pathway and then walk down the pathway you created. Everything starts in the mind as a thought. When we then desire something, instead of wanting, wishing and hoping… you MUST DECIDE IN ADVANCE YOUR OUTCOME. If you remember this, you will be successful beyond your expectations. No Wanting. No Wishing. No Hoping. Just deciding.

It’s that simple. Now all I need to do is to get my kids to understand this principle.

    This is so true. And indeed so simple :-) Be convinced that you get nothing for free, but your thoughts, your deeds and your behavior are the only things wich can make a change or improve your live.

    I used to say my “dream house’ but dreaming is about hoping and wishing. I now say my “goal house”.
    Thanks, Tom (TRCoach)

    PS. “Now all I need to do is to get my kids to understand this principle.”
    Should you change this to “my kids understand this principle” or “my kids are starting to understand this principle.” ?

    Great Post. This is something I also picked up from the Sedona Method. Wanting basically equates to lack.

    This may be a guy/girl difference, but sometimes I get pleasure from “wanting” without actually getting. Mu husband doesn’t understand this at all! For example, I like to dream about living in different houses just to “try them on”, not to actually set a goal to live in them. Not to be too gender-biased, but I think men sometimes miss the point of just daydreaming.

    However, I do get your point that you should try to make it happen once you know what you REALLY want.
