But a lot of the time we can't access our desires because society has conditioned us to follow what I like to call 'scripts.' These scripts tell us how to behave and how to interact with others in order to be good. And while many of these scripts are important and exist for very valid reasons (i.e. don't hit other people), a whole lot of them need to be re-examined (i.e. don't ask for a raise because people in your position should never get one).
So one way to start re-writing these scripts is to pay attention to how often you say or think the phrases "I should..." "I'm not supposed to" or "I can't..." And the other work? To dive in and start paying attention to your desires! This is powerful, potent, important stuff, and it can change your life. So let's do this:
