I had a cool thing happen this week.
I met with this community who I want to learn from. I learned how much it would cost to learn from them and knew I couldn’t afford it right now. They have a scholarship program. I applied. I got a hefty scholarship with a payment plan to make it possible to afford to learn from them. I was so excited.
I told a friend of mine about the opportunity and his first response was, “I’m jealous. I want to do that.”
I told him he should do it, too. He said he didn’t know how. I said, “Just ask.“
That was the only difference between him and me. I asked.
I saw something I wanted and I simply asked.
There have been a few instances in my life in which people say they wish they could do whatever it is I’m doing. And I tell them if they really want to, they absolutely should. And they say they don’t know how. So I tell them to just ask. Google it. Send an email. Find a mentor. Read books about it.
Whatever it is, just ask how you can make it a reality. The answer is out there. I promise.
I apply this to my own goals and career constantly. I’m a believer that the universe supplies exactly what you ask for, so you need to be clear about what you want. If you don’t have a clear goal, you can’t be sure how all the pieces in your life fit together and serve you. And whatever you want may not come your way because you’re not actively asking for it.
Don’t spend your precious energy wishing you could do something your heart desires. Find out how to do it. And the best way to find out?
Yep. You guessed it. Just ask.
