Your dreams become your destiny when you learn the secret art of asking!

Most people have beautiful dreams deep inside—the things they would like to have, the relationships they’d love to enjoy, and the wellness and well-being that would help them express their best, in every way. But often those dreams lie buried inside us. Hidden by fear or unworthiness or a lack of awareness of what could be. Asking is the only language to which the Universe can deliver a solution, understanding, illumination, or plan.

There are three distinct channels through which we can

Ask Yourself

Ask Others

Ask God

Once you begin to practice the art and science of asking to discover your destiny and start to move toward it, you can manifest innumerable blessings for yourself and others.

Ask! will help you access your hidden dreams and reveal them to be recognized and fulfilled in miraculous ways.

I have been taking my time reading this over the last few months. It's got so much to take in and the exercises. This is not a fast read it's one you have to spend time reading and rereading. Its was very helpful and one that would be a great book to read as a small group. All the feed back and support from close friends would be perfect.
I gave this self help gem 4 stars. I plan to give it as stocking stuffers to a few friends this year.

You may be familiar with Mark Hansen’s highly successful and popular “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book series. Mark Hansen has been traveling the world as a motivational keynote speaker, and Crystal Dwyer Hansen is a life coach and nutrition expert. Together they have written 𝐀𝐬𝐤! a book to help you access your hidden dreams.

I love hearing other people’s stories. In 𝐀𝐬𝐤! the authors use stories to showcase how to ask for what you need to achieve your true potential, your destiny.

Filled with quotes, stories, and a little guidance, this is a helpful book for those who may need some inspiration and want to learn the secret art of asking.

The timing is right and the message is clear in this book! When life brings about the dark, we sometimes get unfocused and forget that the power is still within us. If we choose fear then, we will never find our way out. I am grateful to these authors for their wonderful reminder that it is important to ask for what you need. There is always a way...if you are lost, you ASK for directions. The directions are made clear in this book. Thank you for reminding me to ASK!

Ask! is a fascinating book that I would categorize as self help, but really much more than that.
This book was very helpful and one I read over a span of time as there were different examples and exercises to do, which I really enjoyed.

In order to get what you want in life, either in your personal or professional life this book teaches you how to be successful in asking for what you need.

It is really easy to get stuck and be fearful and not move forward or ask for help.

I thought this book was not only well written but also very informative.

High praise !

ASK! is a book that should be savored, read, and reread. The book begins with a fable about a girl that teaches us how asking a question can change many lives including our own for the better.

This book directs us on a journey to ask questions that will help us achieve our best life.

My favorite parts in this book are the true life stories from people of all walks of life that give examples and illustrations on how asking
has improved their lives.

A great read that can apply to anyone in any chapter of life.

This is such an uplifting, positive, and inspiring read for anyone. It's filled with motivational stories and helpful advice for learning to go after what it is you really want. I'm giving this book to my 20 year old son to read as he starts his journey to figure out what his dreams are, but it's great for any age. You're never too old to go after your dreams!

I received a gifted copy in exchange for an honest review.

It took me some time to finish reading this book. It was more like a study guide with questions to ask yourself and jot notes in a journal. Overall, this book is an amazing book. I definitely recommend to anyone to enhance their purpose driven life. Asking the universe, God, Yourself and asking others to achieve the things that you want in life.

Ok book, reminds us to play on the bigger team

I heard this book pushed on the Zigler podcast, so I bought it. It is light reading, telling us to intentionally communicate with others and invite them to help us on our journeys. It helped me challenge myself to think about how I am conducting myself.

ask yourself: why didn’t I read this sooner

Somewhat visualization with a religious spin, but they don’t beat you with religion. Recommend the interview they did with Ed Mylett on his podcast for some perspective. An easy read/listen and could be very impactful.

While I found there to be a number of editorial issues, the premise of the book is great and certainly a lot of things to be learned from it.
