How to Discover What You Want - (Ask Teal Episode about Desire and What You Really Want)

<< Back to videos

Let yourself figure out what you really want in this life. Your desires are responsible for the expansion of this universe. You are forming preferences all day every day regardless of whether you are conscious of it or not.

The people who live the most pleasant lives, take time to make this process a conscious one. The people who get what they want tend to be the ones who first make the effort to know what they want.

You have most likely learned that life is not about what YOU want. It's about making other people happy. And so being honest about what you want may feel risky to you at first. It may even feel like a fool's errand. But it is one of the most important questions to ask and answer for yourself.

We never hear people say "all I really want in this life is to be happy". It sounds like a commonsense answer, but as a life goal, we think it is destined for failure. But Teal explains that this goal is the goal which will enable all necessary conditions to fall into place.

This goal is the Holy Grail.

Happiness is always what we really want. We are telling the universe HOW we want happiness to come to us if we want money or love or anything other than happiness itself.

So let yourself ask to be happy. Let yourself figure out what you really want in this life.

In this episode, Teal suggests many ways you can go about doing this.
