How to Ask the Universe for What You Want and Get It

Do you ever feel like you’re not getting what you want in life no matter how hard you try? You're not alone. Many people struggle with this feeling, wondering why their dreams seem so far out of reach. According to a survey by Gallup, only 15% of people worldwide feel engaged in their jobs, and many feel disconnected from their goals and desires. But what if the key to unlocking your dreams was simply asking the universe for what you want and having faith that it will happen? As Jim Carrey once said, "Your job is not to figure out how it's going to happen for you, but to open the door in your head. And when the door opens in real life, just walk through it." This blog will explore how to ask the universe for what you want and how to take practical steps to make your dreams come true.

Why You Feel Stuck

Imagine Tim, a high school student who dreams of becoming an artist but feels pressured to follow a more traditional career path. He never asks for art supplies or classes because he thinks his parents won’t support him. Instead, he focuses on subjects he doesn't enjoy, feeling more stuck each day.

Or think about Sarah, a single mom who dreams of starting her own business. She works a job she dislikes because she believes she can’t afford to take the risk. She never tells anyone about her dream because she fears they’ll think she’s foolish.

Both Tim and Sarah are not asking the universe for what they truly want. They are holding back because of fear and doubt, which creates a significant barrier to achieving their dreams.

How to Believe in Your Dreams

The first step to getting what you want is believing that it’s possible. According to Dr. Joe Dispenza, a neuroscientist and expert on the power of the mind, "Your thoughts have the power to change your reality." This means that what you believe deeply affects what you experience in life.

Think about it: if you don’t believe you can succeed, you’ll never take the necessary steps to make it happen. On the other hand, if you truly believe in your dream, you’ll start to see opportunities and take actions that bring you closer to it.

Steps to Ask the Universe for What You Want

Here’s how you can start asking the universe for what you want:

  1. Be Clear About Your Desires: Take some time to think about what you really want. Write it down in a journal. Be specific and detailed.

  2. Visualize Your Success: Spend a few minutes each day imagining that you have already achieved your goal. How does it feel? What does your life look like? Visualization helps you align your thoughts and emotions with your desires.

  3. Let Go of How It Will Happen: Trust that the universe will handle the details. Your job is to stay open to opportunities and take action when they arise.

  4. Express Gratitude: Be thankful for what you have and for what is coming. Gratitude keeps your energy positive and attracts more good things into your life.

  5. Take Inspired Action: When opportunities present themselves, take action. Don’t hesitate or second-guess. Trust that these opportunities are leading you to your goal.

Turning Dreams into Reality: Practical Steps to Achieve Your Goals

Now that you’ve asked the universe for what you want, it’s time to take practical steps to make it happen. Here’s a guide to help you get started:

  1. Set Clear Goals: Define what success looks like for you. Make your goals SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound).

  2. Create a Vision Board: Collect images and words that represent your goals and place them on a board where you can see them every day. This keeps your goals in focus.

  3. Break Down Your Goals: Divide your big goals into smaller, manageable tasks. This makes it easier to take action without feeling overwhelmed.

  4. Develop a Routine: Establish daily habits that bring you closer to your goals. Consistency is key to making progress.

  5. Seek Support: Share your goals with friends or mentors who can encourage and guide you. Their support can keep you motivated.

Finding the Fire: How to Stay Motivated and Inspired

Staying motivated is crucial to achieving your goals. “Change begins at the end of your comfort zone,” says Roy T. Bennett. Here are some ways to keep your motivation high:

  • Celebrate Small Wins: Acknowledge and celebrate your progress, no matter how small. This keeps you motivated and focused on your journey.

  • Surround Yourself with Positivity: Spend time with positive, like-minded people who support your dreams.

  • Read Success Stories: Learn about others who have achieved similar goals. Their stories can inspire and motivate you.

  • Reflect on Your Why: Regularly remind yourself why your goals are important to you. This can help you stay committed even when things get tough.

Consider the story of Jessica, who wanted to become a fitness coach. She started by taking small steps, like getting certified and building a client base. Despite setbacks, she stayed motivated by visualizing her success and celebrating her progress. Today, Jessica runs a successful fitness business and inspires others to achieve their goals.
