What Does Life Want From YOU?
If you are a fan of the Law of Attraction like me, you’ve probably spent a lot of time thinking about what you want from life. Today, though, I’d love for you to ask a different question: what does LIFE want from YOU?
Now first off, when it comes to this question, please note that I am not asking you the following questions:
- What does your mother/father want from you?
- What do your friends want from you?
- What does society want from you?
I am asking a much more important question…
What does LIFE want from YOU?
The reason why I love contemplating this question is simple. It cuts through the BS, real quick.
After all, how many times have we wanted life to give us something, only to realize down the road that the desire we had was routed in our ego, not in our soul?
For instance, perhaps you did everything you could to get back with an ex who only treated you like garbage. You got what you wanted but it was a hollow victory. Instead of a loving relationship you found yourself stuck in abuse.
Or perhaps you did everything you could to get that job you thought you were “supposed” to have. You got what you wanted, but found out after years of hard work and sacrifice that it wasn’t a position that fulfilled you or made you happy.
This is why asking yourself what life wants from you can be so tremendously powerful.
After all, if you could ask your life what it wants from you, what do you think it would say?
I don’t know about you, but these are the answers that came to me when I asked the question:
My life wants me to be:
And once I figured out what my life wanted from me, it made things a whole lot clearer. How I attacked my goals and dreams transformed dramatically.
Instead of reaching for hollow victories, I started reaching for things I truly believed would help me meet those objectives.
I stopped competing for the kinds of treasures and signs I thought I was “supposed” to have. Instead, I started qualifying my desires by what my life wanted from me.
Would that job really make me happy? Were those goals going to add to my health or detract from it? Was that objective going to encourage me to be kind or ruthless?

All of the sudden, it became clear what goals were in alignment with my highest life, and which ones weren’t.
So today, I encourage you to ask the same question. What does your life want from you?
Take the answers to this question seriously. When you align what you want with what life wants from you, you’ll move mountains. I promise.
