How?

How do you get what you want?

One day you hear a story about someone just like you, who did {blank}, and got exactly what you want. If the story is to be believed, then if you do {blank} in the same way, you are likely to get what you want.

You want the story to be true because it’s the only story you’ve heard that ends in you getting what you want. The alternative to this story being true is that you don’t have any clue how to get what you want. You wonder whether not following the story as closely as you could might be causing you to lose the thing you want. You resolve to believe in the story as much as you believe in the thing you want.

We all want to believe the story that ends in us getting what we want.
