Scared to Ask?!

There are things we won’t get unless we ask for them:

  • That desirable job / promotion
  • The big sale
  • A big favour / Needed assistance
  • Substantial discount
  • Upgraded seat
  • Permission
  • Approval
  • Special concession
  • The longed for date
  • Desirable access
  • Etc.

Why don’t we ask when we should?

  • Fear?
  • Pride?

When we don’t ask we miss out:

  • Better position / Higher income
  • Rewarding relationships
  • Greater happiness
  • Self respect
  • Etc

Consider this:

  • ASKING is the beginning of receiving. Make sure you don’t go to the ocean with a teaspoon – Jim Rohn
  • You create your opportunities by ASKING for them – Shakti Gawain
  • If there is something to gain and nothing to lose by ASKING – by all means ASK! – W. Clement Stone
  • There are very few monsters who warrant the fear we have of them – Andre Gide
  • Feel the fear and do it anyway – Susan Jeffers
  • When there is no peril in the fight there is no glory in the triumph – Pierre Corneille
  • Fear is the fuel to your success and failure… the difference is embracing it, or running from it
  • True success is overcoming the fear of being unsuccessful – Paul Sweeney
