How To Get What I Want

How to get what I want? You’ve heard the expression, “What you see is what you get.” My grandfather used to say: “If you look at a tree long enough, it will move.” We see what you want to see.

Psychologists tell us that nothing controls our live more than our self-image. We live like the person we see in the mirror. We are what we think we are. If you don’t think you’ll see be successful, you won’t. You can’t be it if you can’t see it. Your life is limited to your vision. If you want to change your life, you must change your vision of your life.

how to get what I want
Arnold Schwarzenegger was not that famous in 1976 when he met with a newspaper reporter. The reporter asked Schwarzenegger.”Now that you’ve retired from bodybuilding, what do you plan to do next?”

Schwarzenegger answered very calmly and confidently: ” I’m going to be the #1 movie star in Hollywood.”

The report wad shocked and amused at Schwarzenegger’s plan. At that time, it was very hard to imagine how this muscle-bound body builder, who was not a professional actor and who spoke poor English with a strong Austrian accent, could ever hope to be Hollywood’s #1 movie star!

So the reporter asked Schwarzenegger how he planed make his dream come true, Schwarzenegger said:

” I” ll do it the same way I became the #1 body builder in the world. What I do was to create a vision of who I want to be, then I start living like that person in my mind as if it were already true.” Sounds almost childishly simple, doesn’t it? But it worked! Schwarzenegger DID become the #1 highest paid movie star in Hollywood! Remember: ” If you can see it, you can be it.”


A successful businessman I know wears a shirt with these words on it. “Don’t just pursue your dreams. Chase them down and tackle them!” You only get one life to live, so why not live the best life possible? so you can be fully satisfied at what you see and get. Just think a minute!

  1. Dear Brameshji,

    very well said and acknowledge the knowledge and your sharing, for sure if we know what we want and focus “See” that we will find way to work towards that and it is sheer passion of what you see how hungry you are.

    taking the anecdote back to our homes, that is what Arjun said when he was asked to aim at the eye of the bird and asked what he saw, against all others who explained what they saw.

    Thank you, your efforts are sharpening our sight to see only the eye, trust we will develop the passion which you carry …. Kudos!
