Ask Big, Often
One of the most important questions, if not the most important question you’ll ever ask yourself is “What do I want?” Knowing what you want is the North Star you can actually use to make meaningful progress in your life. You must be prepared to be honest with yourself, and hear the truth, no matter how outlandish or impossible it might seem. Dreams aren’t meant to make sense or else they wouldn’t be dreams. And dreams do come true.
There’s one thing that helps turn your dreams into reality unlike anything else, and it’s probably the simplest advice you’ll ever hear.
Ask for it!
If you want something then ask for it! You’ll be amazed by how many people offer to help you. It doesn’t matter how big or small, realistic or unrealistic it is, the best way to get what you want is to ask for it.
Many people hesitate to ask for things because they believe life is scarce. You only have so many favors to call in, you’re inconveniencing people to get involved in helping you. But people won’t do anything that doesn’t in some way serve them. So ask away, invite people to be a part of your story, and understand that you have an unlimited amount of wishes! If you’re uncomfortable asking people for what you want then ask the universe for it, because it will deliver to you the people or circumstances that will make it happen.
Don’t be afraid to ask big, often because it will help you get what you want and need, which empowers you to help other people get what they want and need more often too. So let me finish by planting this seed of a question - What are you afraid to ask for?
