Clear requests are a transmission

Making a request is not the same as a demand. A request does not hold an expectation that the answer will be yes. 

A demand holds the expectation that the answer will be yes. Indeed, a demand insists upon it.

When we are making a request the precision of our language matters. Ambiguity and lack of clarity add a layer of difficulty for all parties.

What specifically do you want or need?

By when? 

From whom?

How will it look, feel or taste when it is done?

A request without a backbone of clarity is almost certainly a guarantee of failure.

When we consider our life, our groundedness or lack of groundedness, our creative responses to the life calling us to step up, we might refine and define our ability to make clear requests.

Clear requests are a transmission.
