if you want it find a way to get it

Originally, this piece was going to be offered exclusively to the Courageous Living Coach Certification participants, but the feeling behind it became more expansive (and grew into being a full-fledged audio). Download the audio, hit play–and lather, rinse, repeat as necessary)


I know this, like I know nothing else: if you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to get it.

Of course, this does apply to getting “things,” but there’s more, here. If you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to…to be it. To embody it. To feel it. To make it a lifestyle. To touch it. To hold it. To breathe it.

If you want it badly enough, there’s some way–and it might look different for you, than it does for everyone else, but there is some way–for you to get it.

Furthermore, there’s some way for you to get what you want that feels…good.
Enlivening. Perhaps even natural or easy.

People mis-characterize statements such as “If you want it badly enough, there’s some way to get it.” They assume that this will mean that a bunch of narcissists will start trampling on everyone else in a bid for their own self-interests.

That’s not the way of the courageous warrior. If the price of winning your heart’s desires is trampling everyone else along the way, that’s not truly winning.

The fear that you’ll turn into someone awful in the pursuit of creating the life you desire is the fear that limits you. It holds you back. This fear is an illusion that keeps you from those desires.

I’m telling you, because this is truth: if you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to get it. You’ll find your way. You’ll find the way that is in harmony with your inner guidance, the people you love, the environment and sustainability, and your finances. You’ll find the way that, true, might not make everyone else happy because you can’t please everyone, but you will find the way that brings your desires to fruition while practicing love, compassion, and total integrity.

If you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to get it.

Maybe at first, when you look at what you’ll need to do to get to where you want to go, you’ll think, “No way.” It’ll be new and unfamiliar, and fear will be calling the shots in that moment.

Courage emerges when you take a deep breath, let it be okay that the fear exists, and say, “Okay. I don’t know how I’m going to do this. I only know that I’m going to. I want it badly enough. If I want it badly enough, there’s some way to get to what I desire.”

If you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to get it–hold this as an anchoring statement in your life, and you’ll find that new ideas come to you, you meet the people you were destined to meet, and something that initially seemed like a setback will turn out to be the very best thing that could have happened.

You won’t have to force yourself to believe this–you’ll truly see that it’s true. You’ll truly see that because you had the courage to follow your desires, to make what matters most a priority in your life, and to refuse to give up on what you want even if it’s slow in coming, things start to shift and change.

It won’t be the so-called “Law of Attraction.” It won’t be your zodiac sign. It won’t be anything other than the sheer beauty of you, standing in all your courageous power, holding the simple conviction that your desires are your birthright, they are worthy, they will bring good to the world. The fear stops being, “What if this doesn’t happen?” and starts being the exciting fear of realization that if you want it badly enough, you will find a way to get it–and having figured out that way, you’ll see the sheer force of your unstoppable nature.

If you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to get it.

So now I ask you: What do you want for yourself, more than anything?
