If you keep doing what you’re doing you’ll keep getting what you’re getting. The truth is deep down you already know what you want and you already know what you need. Are you willing to hear the answers?
In other words, can you handle the truth?
In this episode I talk about the veil that exists between you and the truth of what you really, really want. In the long run, if you keep running circles around the obvious, you’re going to find yourself stuck with the same problems a decade from now.
Over your lifetime you accumulate patterns and conditions that separate you from deep yearnings. It’s your responsibility to get clear. No one will do it for you—ever.
3 Steps to Getting Clear
Here’s a quick version of the steps I further explain in this episode.
- Get quiet: Get up early or stay up late.
- Ask the question – What do I really, really want?
- Write it down: Put pen to paper. Fill three pages without editing
What do you really, really want? You already know. Can you handle the truth?
Finally, life is too short to wait ten years to acknowledge the truth. Don’t wait another day.
The time is now. You are not too late.
Buckle up your seatbelt. The truth is waiting for you.

A Grateful Heart by MJ Ryan
Always we hope
Someone else has the answer
Some other place will be better,
Some other time it will all turn out.
This is it.
No one else has the answer
No other place will be better,
And it has already turned out.
At the center of your being
You have the answer,
You know who you are
And you know what you want.
There is no need
To run outside
For better seeing.
Nor to peer from a window.
Rather abide at the center of your being;
For the more you leave it, the less you learn.
Search your heart
The way to do
Is to be.
The scene from the movie A Few Good Men that goes as follows:
Col. Jessup: You want answers?
Kaffee: I think I’m entitled to them.
Col. Jessep: You want answers?
Kaffee: I WANT THE TRUTH!
Col. Jessup: YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!
