Ask (The Universe) & You Shall Receive
Before you even read anything you need to watch this one minute video of Jim Carrey giving a 2014 Commencement Speech at Maharishi University. Pay attention to the part where he talks about speaking to the Universe.

Did you catch it? Carrey said, “What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the Universe for it. I am saying, I am the proof you can ask the Universe for it.”
What a powerful statement.
I am a firm believer in the saying, “You get out, what you put in,” and I have said before, “Positive out, brings positive in.” When I contemplate about what is going on in my world, and then something pops up that is connected to that thought process – I know that is not a coincidence.
The Universe is providing and the more I listen and “talk,” the more I receive in return. The growth trajectory of my business in these past 11 months have all correlated to moments like these. I have proof, it happened again – last night!
As I was doing the dishes yesterday, with this video in mind, I decided to take Jim Carrey’s dare and I asked the Universe for more speaking opportunities. My speaking career had peaked about a month ago and waned a little with the warmer months.
I love to get out, share my knowledge, have conversations and meet individuals in these speaking forums. Ten minutes after “putting that thought out there,” my phone rang … and I kid you not, it was a stranger asking me to speak at an event in 2 weeks. They were referred by a mutual contact.
So I challenge you to ask the Universe for something. Something small, practical and that is intangible. However, having it would make your life that much better. Then listen and wait. Oh and be warned. The Universe has a unique sense of humor, so it may not come to you in the way that you expect, but it will come, I promise.
Have a fabulous weekend and remember to #BFAT!
