Often times we hear the term “secrets to success”, but the truth is there are no secrets to success. The keys to success are in plain view. The problem is, they are so simple that they’re overlooked. One of the most powerful things you can do on a daily basis to accelerate your success is simply “ask” for what you desire, want, or need. Why? Because you will always get what you ask for 100% of the time. Now that’s easy to say, but we can all think back to things that we’ve asked for sincerely but did not receive. The key is understanding the process of “asking and receiving”. There are 4 steps in this process: Desire, Ask, Opportunity, Receive.
Years ago, I had a burning desire for stepping fully into my purpose. I was desperately ready to go to the next level. One day as I was meditating, that desire fueled me to ask “How do I get my passions and ideas out of my head and into my life”. Almost immediately the answer came to me in the form of an opportunity to write a book. I was serious about my transformation and up for the challenge. Once I took the opportunity and finished the book, so many doors were open to me; it was incredible. What was once a dream was now my reality.
So first we get the desire, then we ask, then comes the opportunity. When we take the opportunity we receive what we ask for. The challenge in this process is taking the opportunity. The opportunity is divinely given. It doesn’t come from our past or present, it comes from our future. In order to take the opportunity we have to reach up and venture outside of our comfort zone. When you ask, you get a divine opportunity that will pull you into who you are meant to be.
Many times we allow fear to stop us from taking the opportunity because we get a glimpse of the bigger vision and it’s scary. We start to ask ourselves, how am I going to do this? No matter how big the dream, you are more than enough to fulfill it. Stop looking at who you are today and projecting that image into your big vision. If you say yes to the opportunity today, you begin the journey to fulfill the vision.
I had a vision about my destiny 6 years ago. The person I was in 2005 was terrified to speak on stage for a long time to a crowded room. But the person in the vision was speaking with pure passion and emotion to thousands. Today, I am growing into that person and falling in love with the process.
Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith always says: “God doesn’t call the qualified; He qualifies the called when they say YES.” Make the decision today to ask and then boldly say YES to the opportunities that arise. With this one principle, you can make all your dreams come true.
