What Do You Want?

What do you want?

It's a simple enough question. But can you answer this with just one word? When someone asks "What do you want?" what is your answer? I was recently asked this question by someone that I respect.

He also asked me a second question, "What are you known for?" The funny thing is my brain had filled up with many answers. I couldn't just choose one.

As Skee-Lo's "I wish" says, "I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller..."

After long hours of self-reflecting and meditation, I was able to figure out what I wanted. From the entire list of the things I wanted, I continued to ask "why" and narrow it down to the reasoning behind all of my wants.

Although this is the simplest question, this helped me to plan, guide, and strategize for everything in my life.

Once I have answered this question, the answer led my life to align my ultimate want.

As you answer the question, "What do you want," this will become embodied into you, and this will be what you are known for.

So what is it you want?
