…FRENCH FRIES ALL DAY EVERYDAY.
Yes. That. Is. My. Answer.
Imagine a line of 12 people ahead of you, buffet style, SUPER hungry
IT IS LUNCH TIME.
I get my plate, fill it up with foods I am not allergic to, like the salmon and the pesto dish.
As I peak to see the next food item after the salmon; in the last silver dish bowl there was FRENCH FRIES.
Of course, no questions asked I took at least 8 fries.
Yes I already thought, dang I should have gotten more.
Before even reaching my table, I ate a French Fry.
Sat down and CONTINUED to eat everything on my plate.
Everyone was discussing the assignment during lunch, I stepped away to get dessert. Two watermelon slices and a chocolate cupcake.
Yes, I ate A LOT, but get this…
I wanted more French fries.
Kid you not, I pondered for a good 5 minutes…
I am going to look fat.
No one else is getting seconds.
Do I really need another plate of JUST fries?
I am full.
Why do I always want MORE?
The idea of always wanting more usually is driven from a negative perspective.
As kids, we have all the toys in the world yet still want the same exact toy car because it is slightly bigger and not the same.
As adults, we got a raise.
Often you hear…
“You should be grateful for what you got” or “You always want more…can’t you be happy with what you have?”
I agree. BE GRATEFUL. BE HAPPY.
BUT also always WANT AND WORK for more.
In our office, during the first step we have a conversation.
In the conversation, we set goals.
YOUR GOALS EVENTUALLY BECOME YOUR NORMAL.
So when a kid comes in for ADHD, his goal is to be able to focus in class for 30 minutes.
In a couple weeks, he reaches that goal and creates a NEW GOAL.
He wants more.
NOW, he goes the whole day without tantrums or disciplinary actions towards him.
He wants more.
Our NEW GOAL for him now, is to take his D and C grades to C+
Why? Because he wants more.
WE should always want more.
We should always strive for more.
We DESERVE more.
If you want MORE, here is what you NEED to do NEXT.
