Your needs

A very effective way to achieve whatever you desire is to detach yourself from the need for it. When you’re focused on the need, you’re focused on the negative, limiting fact that you don’t have it. So let go of the need and you’ll be taking the first step toward making it happen. Transform it from a need into a choice and you’ll begin to make it a reality.

Change what you need to do into what you will do, or better yet, into what you are doing. It can make an enormous positive difference in your attitude, your approach, your expectations and your results.

Contrast a person who says “I need to lose some weight” with someone who says “I’ve started working out every morning to get my weight under control.” Which one do you think will actually lose weight?

When you need something, by very definition, you don’t have it. So stop needing it, let go of that need, and start to make it really happen.

— Ralph Marston
