Need versus Want?

It's an old question and there are many opinions about 'needs' being more important or more worthy than 'wants'. But sometimes we can limit our aspirations and as result, our motivation, our drive, if we only think of taking action on the things we need.

'Wants' are about choice, freedom to take action, empowerment. When we consider an activity - phoning a difficult person, giving a presentation, making a start on a report or proposal - we can frame our thoughts in terms of wanting to do it rather than needing to do it. That way we find positive energy and a sense of being in charge of our own destiny.

W is for WANT in the Cesura WAVE coaching and mentoring programme.
