I have the secret for how to get what you want in life. Are you ready? Of course you are. You have to be a little bit cheeky to get what you want. And by cheeky I mean gather all your sass and courage and just ask for what you want, like a person full of cheek. Flat out ask, but with loads of charm. Want someone to give you a pay rise, excellent. Want to have the last biscuit, awesome. Want someone to say nice things about you, but of course.
Once you know that, you have the secret for how to get what you want, in most things, if not in life in general. So use your power for good out there folks, not evil. Wield your cheeky, charming self with the an air of caution because nothing is more effective with people than a good sense of humour, a bit of sass and a healthy dose of cheeky.
Well number one, you ask for what you want. As I mentioned in the opening paragraph, if there is something you have your heart set on, the way you get it, is that you ask for it. Either directly or in your most adorable manner possible. It’s not about being cute or sickly sweet either; it’s about entertaining people a little. But mostly it’s about asking. Plain old asking.
At least once a week, if not more, I open my inbox to find a cheeky request of some description. Mostly around helping promote a brand or blogger (for free). These requests are cheeky because as a blogger, who has been around the block, I am clear I should be paid for my time and hard fought blog real estate. They are even cheekier because occasionally the email contains so much charm or personal incentive that I say yes.
That’s what it is about. It’s about getting the yes.
We’ve all met that one person that we can’t say no to. And not the ones that demand or manipulate, though some would say that’s what is happening here, but the ones who ask in an upbeat, jovial way and somehow make you want to help them. Those people are cheeky. Those people can tell you a lot about how to get what you want in life. They can tell you a lot about enjoying life actually.
When you are enjoying life, asking for what you want and need, having fun and not taking things too seriously you just find yourself in a good place. And like a magnet those happy vibes, for lack of a better word, draw more happiness to you and good things and things you want. It’s just the way things work. Don’t ask me why, but it is.
Give it a try. Find your cheeky.
How do you go about getting what you want? Got a tip for us?
