Scoot Noelle is totally in line with the  » Reframe » I use in my coaching Practice. Soooo many times we say: » I need to do this »,  » I need to cook dinner »,  » I need to finish my project ».
« I need to call my client »…. But What about what do you WANT ? Many time just Reframning from I need to I want create so much Power. Nothing is imposed on you anymore. Many time we do things because WE CHOOSE TO, WE WANT TO. I choose to cook Dinner because I want to bring a Healthy meal on the table. So it is not really a NEED !

Read this article and tell me what do you think.

THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noellewww.enjoyparenting.com/dailygroove

:: Needs and Desires, Part 2 ::

There is no difference between a need
and a desire. For example:

« I need some water. »
« I desire some water. »

In either case, a drink of water would fulfill the need/desire. The difference is in your perception.

When you’re painfully thirsty, your interest in water is perceived as a need. When you feel okay as
you are, but would Love a drink of water, your interest is perceived as a desire.

In other words, needs tend to focus on the painful consequences of non-fulfillment, while desires are
more focused on the pleasure of fulfillment.

Our culture takes pain more seriously than pleasure, so we often call our desires « needs » in hopes of having them taken seriously (or to justify forcing the desired outcome).

A more authentic approach is to start taking your desires seriously. That means re-connecting with your inherent worthiness — and your children’s, too.

Today, notice when you’re perceiving your child or yourself to be in need. Acknowledge that the need is valid, but then re-focus on their/your desire and the joyful anticipation of its fulfillment…

Which focus is more inspiring?
