1) I don't know if it's appropriate to ask for that. Maybe I'm asking for too much.
2) I'm not good enough to ask for that. Who do I think I am?
3) If they say no I'll want to crawl in a hole and die! I can't take that chance!
4) I don't want to bother anyone.
5) If it's meant to be it'll just happen.
Do any of these sound familiar? Of course they do! We all have these stories in our heads every now and again! These are what I call FEAR and FEAR is nothing more than "False Evidence Appearing Real". My coach, Fabienne, says that fear is an attempt to avoid future pain. How true is that?
So instead of asking for what we want, we buy into our fear and before we know it another year passes us by.
To get right to the point... what's at stake when we don't ask for what we want? The cold hard truth is that our happiness is at stake and when our happiness is at stake so is the happiness of anyone who is really close to us! That's just the way of the ripple effect!
And yet, many times when we ask for what we want, we get it. And sure there are times when we are rejected, but I truly believe that God is always working in our favor and so if something doesn't work out, it's either because it wasn't the right time or it wasn't in our best interest. Makes sense?
Take a few minutes to reflect on this today. What is it that you really want in your life? Who do you need to ask in order to make it all happen? You are worthy to ask for you what you want and you are certainly worthy to receive it!
Daily Affirmation: Dear ___________________, give me the courage, strength and confidence to ask for what I want in my life. Let me feel worthy to receive. And close my ears to all the fears that try to convince me otherwise. Thank you. I love You. And so it is.
