I thought that my dreams were silly and that I was always meant to be a follower. That my dreams were just dreams and never would be a reality. But after numerous occasions of being told that I could not be bold , THAT I WOULD NOT BE SUCCESSFUL and not speak up for myself… I decided that I would make a change. That I would always ask FOR WHAT I WANTED FROM LIFE. I decided that I would never let a question go un answered, and if something bothered me I would speak up and make sure my voice was heard. I would make an effort to find the answer and stick up for myself and my thinking.
This change and the BRAVERY to ask for what I wanted is the reason I am where I am in my business and in my marriage! I told myself, “Anita you deserve an amazing relationship and husband. Someone who would always support you and you deserve nothing less, no questions asked.” I told myself “Anita you deserve to be the very best at a business that you felt passionate about and you deserve to work for yourself. WHY NOT YOU!.” I decided at one point in my life (I do not remember when it was exactly), NO MORE. Its time to live BRAVE AND WITH INTENTION. So now I just ask for what I want, and I make sure I go for it. There is not reason I cannot have the life that I want.
I tell my coaches the same thing. I tell them “Go for the ask. Be brave. Be confident. Be upfront. If you want something… ASK FOR IT!”
It is scary to flat out ask for what you want, and demand it from life… but HEY! WHY NOT YOU? Perhaps what you were doing before was not working for you and its time to BE BRAVE!
