One trait I’m working on, personally, is learning to ASK FOR WHAT I WANT. Not what I think is appropriate. Or reasonable. Or what I’m worthy of…
The 5-minute video below reminded me to let myself dream BIG. Have desires. Be outrageously impractical. Follow my heart… all that good cliché greeting-card stuff you’ve read before. Too often, I hear people, especially women, downplaying what they’d like because they don’t want to inconvenience anyone. Come on, you’ve seen this at restaurants, when an order arrives and it’s not what you ordered.
I’ve had women say to me, “I just couldn’t ask someone for that much…” whether they’re talking about their business hourly rate or asking a friend to watch their kids… it doesn’t matter.
I LOVED this video. I actually teared up at the end.. because I believe this video is a metaphor for life… YES, I believe these kinds of things can happen. Ask yourself… would you have been one of the people to tell Santa what you really, really want?
