It is not enough just to ask.
It is not enough just to visualize the outcome, to imagine your next level life, to know with complete clarity what it is you want. It is not enough.
It is not enough just to talk. You have to show up, and you have to keep showing up. You have to become the kind of person who deserves the life you want. You have to start behaving as though you already have the thing you so deeply desire, and the Universe will reorient itself to make it so.
This isn’t random. It isn’t black magic. The truth is that if you behave like a leader, over time, you become a leader. The truth is that if you behave like a successful professional, over time, you become a successful professional. If you behave like a good spouse, over time, you become a good spouse.
It works the opposite way, too. If you behave like someone who is defeated and unproductive, you will become that, too.
And so the best and most productive thing you can possibly do with your life is ask yourself: How would someone who is really good at ___________ react? What would they do?
How would someone who is successful act? How is someone who is happy act? How is someone who is fulfilled act? What would they do? What would they think? How would they respond?
You have to prove to the Universe that you’re ready to go all in. You have to prove to the Universe that you’re willing to do the dirty work of love before they hand you the soulmate. Because a person who just wants a rush of lust isn’t ready to commit to a flawed and imperfect person. Prove to the Universe that you’re willing to write the book before you get the deal, prove to the Universe that you’re willing to do the work even when you’re exhausted. Because the next time you’re handed an opportunity, you’re going to waste it if you aren’t ready to go all in. You’re going to let it slide by if you’re not willing to do the work.
We are handed the keys to our next level, to our future life, every day, all of the time. The trouble is that we don’t want to take the journey. We love the idea and not the reality. And so we get nowhere.
If you want to change your life, you need to prove to the Universe that you are ready to become the kind of person who can handle what you are asking for. You have to show the world you are ready, you are responsible, and most of all, you are willing.
Because leveling up requires a strong foundation to hold it, and our inner work needs to be able to sustain our outer development.
It is not enough to ask for the life that you want. You have to prove to the Universe that you’re ready to go all in, and watch just how fast everything starts to shift.
