Most of us have many desires for our life. We may want a relationship, more money, an easier life or to travel. What are your desires? We often end up spreading our thoughts and energy around to all our desires at once. When we do, it reduces the power for each desire to manifest and it is only when we can narrow our desires that they are more likely to manifest. You can see this in action with those rare people like Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi or Mother Teresa who unified their desires, which not only manifested but also changed the world because of their laser focus on one desire.
Each one of us at some point in our lives has experienced a burning desire for something, maybe it was a bike as a child or a date with that special person in school or perhaps a child of our own as an adult. Do you remember feeling this desire so deeply that you would not give up until it became a reality? How often do you feel that kind of deep burning for something or someone now? This is what we must feel to manifest our desires. The deeper the burn the more likely it will happen.
My question for you is what is the number one desire in your life right now and are you willing to put the energy into making it come true? If not, then you have settled in your life and that has become your number one desire, settling. There is nothing wrong with this if you are happy, but if you feel the need to complain to others about your life or you feel suffering in your life from this choice then it is time to make a shift. It is never too late to start in life but you must stoke the fire of desire once again or life will feel lifeless.

I had an old saying when I was younger.. “If you complain about your life and do nothing to change it, then you WANT to be miserable, you may even enjoy being miserable!”
It is true that we can be so lost that being miserable feels normal and we cannot see anything better.
