Do you wake up each Monday morning with a feeling of anticipation? Are you thrilled to jump into your car, knowing that the sooner you leave, the sooner you’ll be at your desk, doing what you love to do?

Sound crazy?

Pain and Stress Reduction Through Finding Your...

Pain and Stress Reduction Through Finding Your Core Desires?

If your daily life reflects your core desires — the drives and desires that define your very essence — this will be your life.

I speak with so many people looking for pain and stress reduction and I have found the answer through what I call “core desires”.

You’ll make steady progress toward your goals. But more importantly, you’ll have fun getting there, because you’ll be doing what you love to do — what you were born to do.

Even if you meet obstacles. Even if it’s hard. Even if it’s costly.

Throughout history, the great leaders have inspired people to action by tapping into their core de

sires. Listen to this quote:

“I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many months of struggle and suffering. ”

Doesn’t that make you want to jump on board with this guy? I mean a grievous ordeal .Months of struggle and suffering. Who could resist, right?

But when Winston Churchill spoke those words to an already battle-weary England in 1940, the nation rallied behind him.


Because he went on to speak to their core desires:

“You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs – victory in spite of all terrors – victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
Let that be realized. No survival for the British Empire, no survival for all that the British Empire has stood for, no survival for the urge, the impulse of the ages, that mankind shall move forward toward his goal.”

Survival! How’s that for a core desire?

Churchill didn’t underestimate what those coming war years would bring — the blitz, food rationing and loss of over four hundred thousand lives. But the people persevered. Historians still write about their courageous spirit as they fought together behind their leader.

When a great leader speaks to his or her followers core desires, the followers rally behind the cause. When leaders lose touch with those core desires, their influence dissolves.

Now, you may be asking — “What does this have to do with how I feel when the alarm clock goes off at six in the morning? How is this going to help me with pain and stress reduction?”


Once you go through the process of identifying your Core Desires and aligning your life to them, you will fight for your cause the way the English fought for theirs. No sacrifice will be too large; no adversary will be too daunting.

You will be fighting the good fight. Once you’re on course with your Core Desires, you’ll wake in the morning with a new sense of purpose. Maybe you will confront ordeals.

Maybe you will struggle for months. But you won’t falter. You won’t shy away from the battle, because you’ll be fighting for the emancipation of your Core Desires.

You will prevail.

  1. Definitely. There’s no point in fighting your basic drives. Since the age of 4 all I was really interested in was photography. Now I am a photographer. I didn’t do that for financial reasons, since the pay isn’t that great but I wouldn’t be happy doing almost anything else.

    I don’t think it has to be career either. Having a family is also a core drive.

    Good luck following those dreams everyone!
