Ask for what you want. If you don’t get it, decide if it really matters or not. If it does, then ask again in a loving way. Find a loving way to help others give you what you want. If it doesn’t really matter, let it go and move on to something more fun. As long as you are coming from a loving place, a resolution will happen, one way or the other. Your clarity and love will break down resistance – either yours or theirs – so that you can move on in joy.

You will find alternatives as long as you keep this process light, stay focused on what you really, really, really want and simply be amused at the voices of your mind that will tell you “No!” Eventually – and eventually will become shorter and shorter very quickly – this process of shifting your thinking from a state of complaining to a state of creating will become easy and playful.

How can saying thank you make your life more wonderful? When you say thank you, your brain assumes you mean that you are appreciative or grateful, and begins to send out messages to the rest of your body, which releases the good-feeling hormones known as endorphins. When you say thank you with intention –​​​​​​​ take just a millisecond to consciously feel thankful –​​​​​​​ you enhance this effect tremendously, causing an even stronger endorphin release, resulting in a stronger “​​​​​​​feel good”​​​​​​​ response.2
