Ask for what you want! Here’s an exercise to help you make things happen that has been working really well for me!
How good are you at asking for what you want?
There’s often a little girl (you) inside of us who was once told, “Want doesn’t get” or shamed or told they were greedy for asking for an ice cream or a pony and they can still be popping their head up when you want to ask for something.
Most men will say that women expect them to be psychic and automatically know what we want! That can often be about worrying about being rejected or ridiculed if we vocalise our needs or tell people about our big dream.
Here’s a process that my mentor, Dee Wallace shared with me. It’s helped me manifest one of my big dreams that I’ve hardly shared with anyone. I heard yesterday that I’m off to one of my favourite places on the planet, Tuscon, Arizona to speak at the women’s event, “Soar” in November!
Take a piece of paper and draw three columns.
Column one, list all the things you want.
For me one thing on my list was “I want to attract exciting speaking engagements with lots of my ideal clients who I love to work with. I want the perfect opportunities to come to me easily and effortlessly”.
Column two, what do you have. Write as if you already have it.
“I have wonderful opportunities coming to me every week to work with people who are happy to pay my fees and get huge benefit from the work we do together”. .
Column three. I am. Write as if you are truly embodying it, each sentence beginning with “I am”.
“I am speaking at an event each month now. The opportunities come to me easily and effortlessly, always with lots of my ideal clients who want to carry on working with me and really see the value and are happy to pay my fees!” .
Feel the enjoyment and satisfaction and excitement of having what you want in your life!
Read this out loud daily or as often as you remember and focus with everything you have on what you want, not what you don’t want.
Let me know how you get on! I’m excited to hear your stories!
