How you play small #2 — not asking for what you want & need

You can ask for more support. You can ask for more favors. You can raise your prices. And you can ask for what you TRULY want, instead of diminishing what you want upfront.⁣

I ask more than I used to do, but I still tend to do everything myself. I have to remind myself to ask more and that it’s okay to ask. If you ask for something the other person isn’t willing to give, they’ll say no. No big deal.⁣

I can also ask more support from my spiritual team and the universe. 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬, 𝐬𝐨 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐬𝐤 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐨𝐨 𝐦𝐮𝐜𝐡. Another thing I need to remind myself of from time to time.⁣

👉 Are you asking enough? ⁣

👉 What would you ask for if you set aside your fears and didn’t mind feeling uncomfortable?⁣
