One evening, you’re out walking the dogs around the block and you find a dusty old-time, oil lamp that someone has set out by the curb. It’s beautiful! And you can’t imagine why they are throwing it away. So you take it home and polish it up… but when you start rubbing it, a genie appears!
The genie says, “I will grant you three wishes. You only have to tell me what you want.”
And you answer, “… er, well… OK, but how do I know what I want?”
Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? But oddly enough, that’s a question I get asked A LOT from my clients and students.
So if you have ever found yourself wondering that, you’re not alone. In this episode, I share my insights and experiences on why so many people have this problem and what you can do about it.

So the next time you stumble across Aladdin’s Lamp, don’t second-guess yourself!
Don’t try and figure out what the optimum three wishes are, or if you can ‘game the system’ somehow and get more than three wishes – or any of the other mind games that can spin you around until you aren’t sure what you want.
Even if you DON’T find Aladdin’s Lamp, the first step is always to be honest with yourself about what you really want in life – and then OWN the fact that you’re already clear about what it is that you want.
