I spent my time in the car listening to Earl Nightingale’s lectures. Every so often, I need refreshers on what I already know to get re-motivated to keep going. This road that I’m on gets quite lonely at times. So, I reach back and find inspiration through listening to others who have been where I am.
I was inspired to ask myself (my subconscious) to provide me with a few answers to questions that I hadn’t seemed to be able to answer myself. In my steam-filled, evening shower, I spoke aloud. “My goal is to…” “What can I do right now to get to that goal?” And as if I were standing there holding a conversation with another person, the answer flowed right out of my mouth. When I finished stating the answer to that question, another question came to me, and just as before, the answer followed.
This exercise went on, until I had a complete, solid plan of action to execute. I went over it again, just to make sure I had it all, before I switched gears and got out of the shower. I wanted to remember well so I could write it down and refer to it again as needed.
Ask and it is given. Every time. Too bad I used to think that meant something else. I went begging before, and hoping that someone heard me and would grant my request. Now, with wisdom, I know that asking is calling on the power from within to provide solutions, ideas, etc. that I can use to get where I want to go.
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,[…]” (Ephesians 3:20)
