I wanna see you be BRAVE!

“Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do when they settle ‘neath your skin. Kept on the inside and no sunlight sometimes a shadow wins. But I wonder what would happen if you say what you wanna say and let the words fall out honestly I wanna see you be brave. With what you want to say and let the words fall out. Honestly I wanna see you be brave!” -Sara BareillesI used to to be the type of person that was to afraid to ask questions. I used to be the person that was afraid to speak up. I was so afraid to go after what I wanted and own my desir10262157_10203548903744670_6686464816093718056_nes! I was afraid to live bold in my dreams, and in what I wanted out of life. I used to let people walk all over me and tell me how to live.

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!
