Relearn the Skill of Asking: A Simple Definition

Naalala ko nung nagwowork pa ako sa hospital as a staff nurse,
Mayroon isang bata, about 2 years old..

His name is Mike, hindi niya mapronounce ang word na “milk”. Instead, he would say, “mi”.

So, kapag humihingi siya ng gatas, sinasabi niya lang ang word na “Mi”. Katulad din siya ng ibang bata, sinasabi niya ‘to a million times if necessary until na makuha niya ang gusto n’ya.

At kung maririnig mo, “Mi. Mi. Mi. Mi. Mi…” ng paulit-ulit, you will really give him what he wants.
May isang bata din, his name is John, 8 years old..

He also knew how to ask pero mas marunong siya compare kay Mike. Mas madali niyang nakukuha ang gusto niya.

After dinner, he asked his mother, “Pagkatapos kong kumain, pwede ba ako maglaro ng computer games?”
“Anak, magbasa ka ng libro.” Sagot ng mommy nya..

Ang facial expression ni John ay hindi pa rin nagbago. With a big smile, he asked, “Mommy, pagkatapos kong magbasa ng libro, pwede bang maglaro ng computer games?”

Sagot ng mommy nya, “Anak, pagkatapos mong magbasa ng libro, matulog ka na.”

Again, with a big smile, tinanong nya ulit, “Mommy, pagkatapos kong magbasa ng libro bago matulog, pwede bang maglaro ako ng computer games for 30 minutes?”

“Hindi. Matulog ka na pagkatapos.” Sagot ng mommy n’ya.
“Mommy, kahit 15 minutes lang?”
“Hindi! Gusto kong matulog ka na agad.”
“Mommy, kung 10 minutes? 10 minutes lang? Please.. Please..Please…?
“Owwwww…Okay!”

pumayag na lang ang mommy nya.

Now that’s the power of asking.

The son expected to get what he wanted.
He used his smile. He used compromise. He used his puppy eyes. He used his cuteness.
But the important thing was he got what he wanted.

THE UNIVERSE ADJUSTS TO YOUR EXPECTATIONS

As adults, hindi na natin ginagawa ‘yan. We don’t ask with expectancy.
So we go to God and say, “Lord, pwede mo ba ako bigyan ng ganito…” And when we don’t get it in two seconds, we say, “Okay, never mind.”

We quit too quickly.

Here’s the problem: The universe adjusts to your expectations.
If you expect nothing, you get nothing.

The universe is the greatest Buffet of Blessings. Don’t settle for a biscuit. Don’t eat crumbs in a dark corner of your life.

God is telling you, “My child, the blessings are here. It’s waiting for you. Stand up!
Ask. Not for a bit. Not for a little. Ask for a double portion!

Are you ready to ask?
