S:0809 Principle: Ask

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Seek and find. Sow and reap. Knock and the door shall be opened.

That message, in its many forms, has been known and taught for millenia. At its core it says that first you must take action. Then something happens. Ask first. The rub is with the asking and asking has two main issues.

First, vague desires lead to vague asks. By clarifying your desires you will be clarifying what you are asking for. Most people are amazingly vague in their asks.

The process of asking will surface any prohibitions in your programming against asking for what you desire, such as, “That’s too big for me.” “I don’t deserve it.” “I don’t believe this is possible for me.”

The barriers to cleanly asking will need to be resolved or else the ask will be diluted, defused, diffracted, and absorbed by the ‘debris field’ of your deepest mental conditioning.

Desiring without asking and asking without clarity are each loaded with obstacles. Clean them up and watch things change for the better.


Coaching Point: Are you clearly asking for what you desire? Or just hoping it will show up?
