Success Is Easier When You Ask
You’ve got to ask. Asking is in my opinion, the world’s most powerful and neglected secret to easier success and happiness.
We really feel afraid to ASK people for anything because we would look needy, foolish, or stupid. But mostly we are afraid of experiencing rejection.
Whenever you’re asking others to participate in the fulfillment of your goals, some people are going to say NO.
Just get used to the idea that there’s going to be a lot of rejection along the way to the brass ring.
There’s a specific science to ask for and get what you want or need in life.
1.Ask as if you expect to get it.
Ask with a positive expectation. Ask from the place you have already been given it. It’s a done deal. Ask as if you expect to get a yes.
2. Assume you can.
Don’t start with the assumption that you can’t get it. Assume you can get a table by the window.
3. Ask someone who can give it to you.
Qualify the person. Your work is just to reach the correct place and connect the dots perfectly.
4. Be clear and specific.
Vague requests produce vague results. Your requests need to be specific.
5. Ask repeatedly.
Never give up when you get turned down.
