Have you ever wished you could just get what you want? Are you sick of being everything to everyone else? Of being totally spent because you are there for everyone else?

Here is my checklist to “get what you want!
What do you want?
Before you get what you want you need to know what it is you want? How can you get it of you don't know? Is it to be heard and valued at work, or for your partner to hear your concerns, perhaps it’s to have your ideas listened to, maybe its to have a difficult conversation and get a good result?
This is critical and it is really important to get to the foundation of what you want. Is it to be heard and understood, is it to share your concerns, is it to clear the air, what is it?
Who do you want it from?
The best way to get what you want is to ensure that first of all you know what it is you want and who you want it from. Is it a boss? a teammate? your business partner? your partner at home? a friend? a client? Who is it?
Get in their shoes
Then you need to get into their shoes; yes the best way to get what you want is to understand what they want first! Sounds weird huh? But if you know what you want, and what they want you can create a win-win for you both!
This is the best way to get what you want and it does not involve any shady tricks, underhanded tactics or manipulation.
The best way to get what you want is to help others get what they want. Then it is a great outcome for everyone concerned.
