Maybe all we need in this world is a little more love. Enough said.

Lesson 37: Make Powerful Requests
Our ability to manifest the things we desire is in direct proportion to how powerfully and clearly we can state our requests. Some of us were taught that it’s impolite to make direct requests, so instead we manipulate, drop subtle hints, dance around a subject, or expect those around us to read our minds. What time and effort we could save if we would just learn to ask for what we want!
A powerful request is one that’s clear and specific and lets the listener know exactly what you want and by what time you want it. It’s not a demand, but an invitation to participate in your vision. Remember the words of Mahatma Gandhi: “If you don’t’ ask, you don’t get.”
To turn our visions into reality, we must cultivate the art of making powerful requests.
Your Self-Love Assignment
This week, acknowledge the areas in your life where you’re able to make powerful requests. In what situations or relationships are you able to clearly ask for what you need? With your clients or co-workers? With your children or friends?
Now notice the places where you’re unable to ask for what you need and identify what stops you from making powerful requests. Is it embarrassment? Fear of rejection? Lack of confidence?
Allow yourself to see what belief, thought, or fear you’d have to give up in order to clearly state your needs and desires.
And finally, identify two powerful requests you could make this week that would move you in the direction you want to go.
