There’s nothing wrong with wanting more, as long as what you want more of brings you more happiness, connection, abundance, satisfaction, and love. (Not more drama, pain, or junk food!) But most of us have a habit of saying and doing things that actually accomplish the exact opposite. Today, you’ll learn the secrets to turning that around and responding to situations in a way that gets you more of what you want.

Biggest Takeaways From Episode #77:

  • Wanting more of what you want isn’t selfish. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to enjoy life more and have better relationships!
  • We tend to focus on what we don’t want, generally out of fear and a desire to protect ourselves. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work, and ends up making us miserable.
  • You might get less of what you want in these ways: criticizing people when they don’t get it right, not expressing enough gratitude or appreciation, and even looking for things to go wrong or badly.
  • To get more of what you want, turn around the things causing you to get less of what you want. Focus on (and express appreciation for) what you liked, and say nothing about what you didn’t like.
