“A mindset that can take you far in life: ‘What I want doesn’t exist, so I’ll create it.’” - James Clear
Have you ever found yourself thinking that what you want doesn’t exist? Maybe it’s a specific job, a certain type of relationship, or even a hobby that you can’t seem to find. It’s easy to feel defeated and give up on your aspirations when you believe that they’re unattainable. But what if instead of giving up, you decided to create what you want?
This is the powerful mindset that author James Clear suggests can take you far in life. By believing that what you want doesn’t exist yet, you open yourself up to the possibility of creating it. You become the innovator, the inventor, the trailblazer who can bring something new and valuable to the world.
But how do you go about creating what you want? Here are a few steps to get you started:
Define what you want
The first step is to get clear on what you want. Be specific and detailed. Write it down and make a plan. The more clarity you have, the easier it will be to create it.
Identify what’s missing
Once you know what you want, you need to identify what’s missing. What needs to be created or changed in order to bring your vision to life? What resources do you need? Who do you need to collaborate with? Get clear on the obstacles and opportunities that lie ahead.
Now it’s time to take action. Don’t wait for someone else to create what you want. Start taking steps towards making it a reality. It might be small steps at first, but every action will move you closer to your goal.
As you create what you want, be open to feedback and new ideas. Sometimes the best solutions come from unexpected sources. Stay curious and willing to learn.
Creating something new is not always easy, and there will be setbacks and challenges along the way. But keep going. Believe in yourself and your vision. Remember that every failure is a learning opportunity, and every success is a step towards creating the life you want.
By adopting the mindset that what you want doesn’t exist yet, you become the creator of your own life. You become a person who is willing to take risks, to innovate, and to bring something new and valuable into the world. So go ahead and dream big, and then create it. You never know what amazing things might happen when you do.
