Getting What You Want

Getting What You Want

“Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it!”

– Maya Angelou, an amazing poet!


Do you want more than you currently have?  Do you feel that you can be and do more?  Do you desire more for your children and those you love?


If the answers are yes, listen up.  You can have more, be more and get more if you do something that we often overlook and under-appreciate.  That is, we need to ask for what we want.  While this is a first step, it is absolutely not the only step.


“I find it unusual that it is more socially acceptable to complain about what you have than it is to ask for what you want.”

– Phil Lout

Today, we walk down memory lane here at Hooray Living.  We are dipping into audio files from Can-Do Boosters.  I invite you to take a few moments and hear what I had to say on the subject a few years back. My words are as true now as they were when I first gave this talk.


Always remember, “smile, and the world smiles with you.”


With love and hooray,

Lee Ann







Written by Lee Ann Hopkins

Smile and the world smiles with you. That's the motto she lives by. Lee Ann is perfectly imperfect and unabashed about it even as she strives for higher and "better" every day. Both her can-do and her foibles are as fabulous as her smile. So take a moment and breathe in Lee Ann's "hooray" for today! Ms. Hopkins is the founder of The Hooray Daily and Hooray Living, a speaker, writer and do-gooder, who believe-it-or-not has been a public-interest attorney and clergywoman. No attorney jokes, please!;-) Well, on second thought...they really are delicious! Bring 'em on!
