The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.
Throughout this book, references at the end of chapters will be
made to your I-Want-List. Because humans are naturally goal
striving mechanisms, it is preferable for us to have goals. Be
cautious, however, about what goals you set. They may come true
in unintended ways. Without goals, or with inappropriate goals,
we often founder or flounder. I have seen a number of clients
for whom goals initially are non-existent or impossible. They
suffer as a result because of lack of direction. Such clients
usually had unhappy experiences with inappropriate goals.
|Go after spontaniety, creativity, playfulness, fun and laughter now! Don't wait for some unlikely time in the future.
It is important for you, the reader, to also read Appendix C.
For there are several ins and outs about this I-Want-List method
of change that can make or break its effectiveness in helping
you to manifest change. Your old unwanted pattern will likely
persist if you have too many I-Wants on your list or if you do
not (1)write the I-Want down, (2)say it aloud, (3)post it where
you can see it and (4)reward yourself publicly.
Which of the following do you want to add to your list?
I want more creativity, spontaneity, fun and play in my life.
I want to enjoy humor, my own and others.
I want more pleasure in my life.
