Do you ever notice that you will say, “I wanted to ask you…” “What I was going to ask you was…” “I just wanted to thank you.” When you put your present intentions in the past tense, it waters down your horsepower. It actually invalidates the message you want to say. So instead of saying, “I wanted to ask you…” change it to “I want to ask you…” “I want to thank you.” Put it in the present tense and now you have a lot more horsepower and you are avoiding invalidating your strength. So, give it a try. I want you to know that.
