How To Get What You Really Want – Week 1

Speaker: Grant Agler

What do you want?


We want our way


When we get what we want, we get in our own way


We can’t get our way and have it too


We want to do, what we want to do

Pleasure is addictive, which undermines the pleasure, which isn’t what we want


We want it now!


Later is longer




Regret: “I want to go back in time and not get what I wanted

God wants something for you
