The Secret To Successful Asking

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you hinting @ a request from Life or the Universe or are you asking directly?
What’s the difference?

Hinting:  A slight indication or intimation. Indirect suggestion. A barely perceptible amount.
Asking:  To make a request.  To inquire. To Invite.
(Dictionary.com)

The first one (hinting) sounds like avoidance or, at best, half-assed. Non-committal. Almost like you don’t really care or even actually want it. AMBIVALENT.

The second one (asking), on the other hand, is an INVITATION. Directly beckoning it to you with a “come hither look”.

Honestly, which one do you think will get the better response?
Think about it.

If you believe thoughts become things (like I do) then you can probably imagine your “hinting” thoughts are meandering all over the place in the general direction of their targeted request–a bit like a drunken arrow. How likely do you think it is that it will reach that target?
Maybe–if you’re VERY lucky.

It’s almost like asking someone, life or the Universe to read your mind. Hard to do.

Whereas…if you “invite”–asking directly for the thing, desire, action, etc., to take place it’s more like an arrow zeroed in to pierce the target with a direct hit–BULLSEYE!

It could be likened to being invited to a BORING GET-TOGETHER vs. A KICK-ASS-PARTY!
Which sounds more appealing?

(Now, to be practical, you have to know what it is you really want first.)

A hint: barely perceptible
or…
An ask: address a question and expect an answer. “a CALL for”
(define.com)

I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!!
or…
I HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR! YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND!!!

So, next time, when you think your thoughts
(negative/positive)
(indirect/direct)

don’t matter…

THINK AGAIN!

Send out THE CALL.

Address THE QUESTION (like you mean it).

And,

EXPECT AN ANSWER!
