What is your Big ASK? Do You Know?
One of my favorite songs as a child was sung by Diana Ross “Do you know where you’re going to?”
Do you know where you’re going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to? do you know?
Do you get what you’re hoping for?
When you look behind you there’s no open door
What are you hoping for?
Do you know?
Many of you have already invested in getting a copy of The Big ASK
so some of this content is going to piggyback many of the principles in the book.
(Sidebar: Please take the time to write me a review on Amazon. Reviews on Amazon are like gold nuggets.)
The one question I get all the time about productivity and The Big ASK is:
How do I get clear on my wants, needs, and desires?
Having a Big ASK is getting so much emphasis nowadays for two reasons.
One: Many people have serious internal self-defeating thoughts about knowing what they want, feeling comfortable communicating it, and stating it clearly. This is where some businesses fail because they go from not knowing what they want to not knowing what problem to solve for their clients as well.
(my mom used to say, how you do one thing is how you do everything…just think about the patterns we created without even realizing it)
Two: Many of us, I will speak for myself here grew up suppressing my wants, needs, and dreams — even to the extent of feeling guilty about “wanting” something.
(you know the saying from our parents “don’t touch anything, don’t ask for nothing, don’t look at nothing…”)
Most of us learn the power of suppression more than the magic of manifestation in our childhood.
With this in mind, we begin to grow up and feel as if someone will lack because of our wants, desires, and needs…someone else will be deprived because of our clarity.
It is time to free your dreams and visions. It is time for you to take a trip on the wild side. The side that all things are possible. The side that proves that your steps are ordered by God. The side that contradicts your status, class, ethnicity, background, education, and even your own beliefs.
