Unleash Your Subconscious

When I visited Tampa this summer, I bumped into a friend who made an interesting comment. 

She said we often ask for what we want, not realizing what we think we want is far smaller than what the universe has in store for us. 

Instead, she suggested asking before we go to sleep at night: if I knew everything, what would it be? / what would I want? / what would I do?
