When you have a problem that you can't solve, typically you turn to a friend or family member for support or advice. From personal experience, I can tell you that what I want from that person is to give me guidance. I want them to point me in the right direction and help me to see what I should do next.
While it can be helpful to get advice from a friend, your pal is not the one who has the answers. The truth is, the answer to your question is closer than you think. Close your eyes for a moment. Take a deep breath is and imagine what your problem is. Continue to breathe in and out and think to yourself "what do I want?" Only you can answer that.
Once you've relaxed your mind and your body, you will come to an answer: your answer. We as human beings have a strong inner-intuition, however often external forces cause us to question and over-think when what we truly desire is just under the surface.
When you have your answer, what you truly want, open your eyes. Grab a piece of paper and write it down. Start with "I want _________." Next write down three steps that will help you to achieve your goal. Write down a time frame for your goal: I want to complete this by this date. Once you've done that, stick the piece of paper in a place that you can see it like the wall in your bedroom or next to your bathroom mirror.
