If You Want Something, Just Ask.

I’ll say it again and again and again. If you really want something, all you need to do is ask. How worst things can turn out after asking that question. Well, you can expect 3 things to happen.

  1. The first and the best result is you get what you want.
  2. The second result is you get rejected.
  3. The third and the worst results is you get not reply.

Does that sound bad? I don’t think so. All you need to do is just move on and keep on asking. If you stop asking, then you’ll never get what you want. It’s a simple thing but a lot of people fail to do it. You don’t have to make things complicated. The simplest way is always the best way.

When you decided to send out emails asking for something, ask nicely. Choose your words carefully so that it will sound nice and gentle. Words like “please”, “may I”, “it’s a pleasure”, “hopefully” and “thank you” can be repeated often as it doesn’t sound strange to be polite.

Don’t forget to say thank you to those that replied. That includes emails that rejected you. For those that replied yes, you can repay them with a link or a post on your blog other then just a simple thank you. Any gift from you just to show your gratitude will be fine.

    With this kind of open invitation I have to ask if you can help publicize (comment, link, etc.) the efforts of this young woman in her social enterprise in Cambodia.

    Yup, you are right. All that people need to do is ASK but there is one thing that holds us all back ? FEAR!!! It is something that holds us back and prevents a lot of us from reaching our full potential. Another thing is that us being human may know it but still stay the same. I was one who used to be so scared of stepping up and asking for something but over the years I have been and still am getting myself used to asking for what I want. Most of the time the outcome has been positive but I don?t always get what I want and that just a part of life.

    When you really think about it, WHATS THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN?

    Thanks for the post and I hope a lot of people really have a think about it after reading.

    That’s absolutely right. I think the phrase “If you want something, just ask” can sell with a high price.

  6. Much worse than the possibilities listed is when you get punished for having asked; and unfortunately, that’s all too common with some of the things I want.

    “What’s the worst that can happen?” is generally not a good question to ask, because life is good at surprising us in that line.

    Life is sure full of surprises. When we take our chances then there will be surprises waiting for us, either it’s good or bad. If we just sit back and wait then nothing will change.

    When we decided to ask for something, try doing it wise. We can choose to ask anybody but not everybody. Show that we are looking for help but not looking for trouble or trying to offend others.

    Bad or good surprises, it’s actually depend on how you interpreted.

  8. Agree with that the simplest ways are more often than not the best ways.

    And to show gratitude and appreciation may effect wonders at times. Those that are receptive for this will thank you for ever (me included).
