Ask for What You Want (Or You Might Not Get It)

We all do it.

We avoid asking for what we want.

Our pets have no problem asking for what they want; maybe we should take a note from them!

For some reason, when we want something, instead of just coming out and asking for it, we expect the other person to know - magically, reading our mind - and give it to us without us actually having to tell them.

How's that working for you?

Or when we want something, instead of asking the Universe for what we DO want, we complain about what we DON'T have - thus, coming from a place of negativity, lack and scarcity.

Well, guess what? The energy you put out into the Universe, is delivered right back to you.

So instead of saying "I hate my job - I gotta get out of here", instead try saying, "I am so excited to create a career I love" - and then, get this, actually DO something about it!

Do any of these sound familiar to you?

I want to help people.

I want to feel that what I do matters.

I want to start my own business.

I want to quit the corporate world.

I want to simplify the process of building my business.

I want to have more time with my family.

I want to have better self-care.

I hear you, ladies.

I’ve totally been there.

And what I learned that helped me with all the above, is to ASK FOR WHAT I NEED!

If you want to help people, ask others how you can help them.

If you want to feel that what you do matters, ask your intuition to guide you.

If you want to start your own business, ask people about an issue they deal with – then figure out how to solve it for them (or even ask yourself what you struggle with – then create a solution).

If you want to quit the corporate world, ask for the advice of other people who have made the transition.

If you want to simplify the process of building your business, ask a coach to help guide you.

It you want to have more time with your family, ask yourself why you're not saying no to things that aren’t providing you with value. You can create more free time by prioritizing those things most important to you. And don't forget, ask your family to spend time with you!

If you want to have better self-care, ask yourself what makes you feel happy, relaxed and taken care of - then do more of that!

There is no shame in asking for what you need – whether it’s from yourself or other people.

In fact, to NOT ask would be a shame.

You deserve everything you desire.

And you’re capable of creating it.

That's right - YOU are in control.
