So many of us deny our desires, but do you know our desires are an important aspect of what lies within us.
Acknowledging our desires means discovering our inner self and accepting the core of our motivations.
When we deny our desires, and when we attach rules, words or codes to our lives, we cut ourselves off from our gifts, love, and creativity.
Each one of us has different wants and desires, wishes, dreams, hopes, visions, goals and plans.
Are we telling people what we really want?
Are we expressing our deepest wishes?
Are we feeling the depth of our longing?
For businesses to thrive and for relationships to succeed, we need to express our likes and dislikes and be open to giving and receiving. We need to know that a big part of being successful and authentic means owning our desires.
If we don’t own our desires, our self-assurance is deprived and our knowledge is limited. Those who do not define themselves remain lost in the crowd.
Owning our desires provides us with a stronger sense of where we stand with ourselves and others. When people understand what we want, they will be more clear about who we are.
In Kabbalah it is explained that a desire is placed within us so that we can develop and reflect deeper. It is addressing the depth of the reality which appears inside of our heart – This is a “point in the heart.” This point is a part of the greater reality which includes spirituality, emotionality and humanity.
Your desire is about examining, engaging and exploring the deepest parts within you. Once you own your desire, your success will take hold and transform everything.
Lead From Within: Follow the ways of your heart and OWN your desires. It will get you one step closer to realizing your hopes, dreams and goals.
