Chapter 2 desire

It has taken a lot of self searching and concentration on listening to myself to discover what my true desires are. I'm still in the process.

First things first I ask myself is this your desire? Or someone else's, is it what you want? Or is it what you think others expect of you?
Is it something you were told you wanted? What is my strongest, most dominating desire?

I'm finding with each chapter of this book I have extra homework to first get myself mentally prepared to attempt the work required or to apply the lesson.

One of the most important things for me is sleep. Sometimes I run out of time and don't get enough of it and it always has the same r
esult, disorganized disaster. Sleep is essential because it massively impacts how productive I am the next day.

Also very important is to clear out any negative thinking before I sleep. I can't be simmering on negative thoughts in my sleep that may
then slip into my subconscious mind.

When i take the time to clear my mind of the clutter before I sleep, by doing this  I'm also bringing up my energetic frequency to create
a superior habit. I'm  learning what techniques will and which won't work. The key here is for me  to do whatever necessary to shift my
energetic frequency higher than it is when I  have negative thoughts.

Sometimes confidence is all that's needed for me to reach that next level. This only comes when I truly believe in myself and my abilities. 
If I doubt myself, it won’t work. I cannot successfully fake my confidence anymore than I can fake my true desires.

I'm working on focusing my energy and directing it towards two things that are within my power.

These two things I can control are where my attention is directed and where I put my efforts. 

(Finding what you desire is only one of the six steps recommended in this chapter.)

Thank you Michael for MFF and everyone on these calls.
