I'd Like to

Updated on July 13, 2010

I'd like to...


I’d Like to….

How many times have you heard this phrase? How many times have you said it yourself? The danger in this phrase, if said long enough, will turn into “I would have liked to”.

People that have turned 65 or so are the ones saying the latter. Financial independence has passed them by. All the things they would have like to do can no longer be done due to health, fitness, or finances. Or maybe they are just to unhappy and bitter! What? Bitter? Yes! I have spoken to many people that will not do anything they want simply because they are bitter that they couldn’t have done it earlier in life. Doing “it” would contradict their mindset. The mindset they have developed over the years that keeps speaking to them saying, “someday, someday, maybe someday”.

What I have discovered is that in all the calendar books in all of the world, “someday” is NOT a day on the calendar. To use a worn out, but still significant saying, “people don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan”.

What does your plan look like? I’m sure if I would ask you what events are coming up involving your job, you could go right to your schedule book and tell me exactly when, where, why , and how these events will take place.

What about your “family” schedule? Do you have one? Is it important?

What about your financial schedule? Same questions.

What about your happiness schedule? Same questions. However, I must clarify first what a “happiness” schedule is. It is a schedule of things you do for yourself that make you happy. Things like a massage, a morning run, nighttime stroll, riding a roller coaster, and so on. What makes you happy? Is it important to schedule it in?

Most recently, I ran into a checkout clerk that noticed we were from Australia. She said, “I’d like to go there someday”. I asked, “What’s holding you back?”. Answer: money and time.

Those precious commodities that we all seek and yet most never seem to find.

Which begs the question, “Why not?”

I believe most say “I’d like more time, I’d like more money.”

Lets transform these “I’d likes” into “I Wills”, shall we.

I will go to Australia. I will have more money. More specifically, I will have $543 more in my bank account by July 30th. I will schedule happiness time. I will schedule family events. My job is not the ruler of my life, I am!

What a simple transformation it seems like, but we have been programmed so long with, “I’d like”, that it never will come true. Add, the will and you “will” get everything you deserve and more. Try it, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Look me up on Facebook or email me at if you would like personal assistance. Till then, have a great day!
