People who ask confidently get more than those who are hesitant and uncertain. When you’ve figured out what you want to ask for, do it with certainty, boldness and confidence.
Its true, asking for things can be tough. For some self serving take-take people it can be natural as air, but for the rest of us, it can cause some anxiety. Will I be rejected? I am I being to forward? How will I repay them back? It’s normal to have questions like these lingering in the back of your mind. But as Canfield states, better to ask in confidence, certainty and boldness then to dwell in the end result of the request. Ask for that extra session, 5 minutes of explanation, a second chance, a letter of recommendation, a perspective… You maybe surprised by the response and its worth a shot I’d say. In my personal experience, I have been amazed by everyone’s willingness to share, help and support- people want to help you; why not let them?
We can’t go at it alone in this world. Those who understand this early have a head start.
Sorry it’s short…boggled down with school and in the final stretch to completing my program. Look forward to finally having more time and resources to grow this little space of mine.
From my heart to yours.
