Understand what you truly need

There’s a difference between what you “need” and what you “want”.

You might not necessarily need what you want but you can’t do without what you need.

I’ll break it down to help you understand better.

Let’s say you “want” a Mercedes Benz jeep, that’s what you want. But what you actually “need” is mobility.

You need a comfortable means of transportation that can move you from one point to another.

This might not necessarily be a Benz jeep, but any elegant automobile in good working condition.

In this scenario, getting yourself an automobile is necessary, that’s what you need. If you have the cash, you can get yourself a Mercedes Benz jeep because that’s what you want.

It’s important you focus on things you need, while you continue to work towards what you want.

What you need will serve the purpose of what you want, that’s the most important.

What you need is mobility in class and style.

Once you understand the “want” and “need” in your daily decisions and apply them accordingly. Your fear of speaking in public will begin to disappear.

At times, people don’t really know what they need to move from point A to point B. This might cause them to stagger due to constant stress, loss confidence in themself which will reflect in their communication.

That’s why you need to pay attention to your instinct, listen to it and act on his instructions.

That’s the only element that will always tell you the truth. It knows what’s best for you and it will never deceive you.

People follow the trend so much without figuring out their true identity.

Most people don’t even know who they truly are, they don’t understand their strength and capacity.

They do things because others are doing it. When you ask them why? they say because others are doing it so they join the trend.

In situations like this, their instincts never stop telling them they’re doing the wrong thing.

But, at times… it’s easy to ignore one’s instinct since others will not notice.

These are attitude that rob people of their self-esteem.
