You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes you just might find, you get what you need." These words from the Rolling Stones song, "Can't Always Get What You Want", are very true even in today's times. How many of us are looking for "happiness", or the perfect job, or the win, or the perfect situation in everything? We see everything as a finish line, something you eventually get to then you "made it". But most of these things don't have a perfect solution. What is "perfect" anyway?? It's a glorified perception of what you want. Maybe the WANT seems "perfect" based on where you are in your life currently, with your skills and your abilities. Ever have that time where you wanted something so bad that you looked past all the steps to get there and focused only on the end.....then it never happened? That happened to me in a big wrestling tournament when I was in high school. I was picked to win the whole thing, and I definitely should have. But in my second match, I had a kid that was much less experienced than me, a much worse wrestler than me, and I lost to him. I wanted to win the tournament so bad. I wanted to be good so bad. But this loss showed me that I need to concentrate on the "right now". Sure I can aspire to things I want in the future but if I don't focus on each step that is happening right at this moment, then I'll trip and fall. And I did. I didn't get what I wanted. What I needed was some focusing of my actions. I NEEDED this lost now early in my Junior year so that I didn't have anything like this happen later in the more important matches and events of the year and even just as a point of reference for later in life. That happened to me when I was 16 years old. I'm 50 and I remember it like it happened last week. Don't stop questing for the amazing things you want in your life. But be open enough to see that there will be somethings you need that are much more important. When you get the things you NEED, you will get further in whatever because it shores up your foundation. When you only get what you WANT, then the foundation is overlooked and there will be problems. The WANTS are the icing on the cake. The NEEDS are the cake:)
