“You’ve got to ask. Asking is, in my opinion, the world’s most powerful and neglected secret to success and happiness.” Percy Ross (Self-made millionaire)

“Just get used to the idea that there’s going to be a lot of rejection along the way to the brass ring.” Jack Canfield

“To be alive at all involves some risk.” Harold MacMillan

In order to get what you want in life it is important to have the bravery to ask for it. This is extremely hard to do for most of us. It involves facing rejection head on. The truth is that thinking about the rejection is much harder then facing it and you just might get the wonderful answer of “Yes!” Ask for what you want directly and politely. Prefacing your request with, “I know you probably don’t want this but…” or “It’s ok if you say no” is NOT the way to ask. Just ask directly and then a simple “Thank you.” for a yes and “Thanks anyway” for a no response is all that is needed. Keep it simple and keep asking. It gets easier and the rewards are huge!
