What if they say no? What if I have to find another way?
Yeah OK fine.., but what if they say yes!
How are you going to know if you don’t ask? Sure there are ways to ask that are more likely to get a positive response but at the end of it all, even if you right royally screw it up at least then you’ll know and can move on. Some businesses are built on the basis that you will get more no’s than yes’s. Network marketing comes to mind; not because they want no’s, but because such a stigma has been built up around that business model that most people approached about it will have already said NO in their mind before you start. Your job then becomes changing their mind rather than starting from a neutral middle point. Not easy. But the people who do really well out of it know that for every no they get, they are one step closer to a yes!
What questions have you not asked because you’re unsure of the answer? How long are you going to stay in that place of uncertainty? Until the opportunity is gone?
Why not ask today? If the answer is no then you now have that part of your focused energy back to put elsewhere.
Be prepared for objections if you like by brainstorming what you would say if the answer was more of a request for more information than a flat out no. Many times that is the case.
Pick a question you want to ask someone and commit to asking it. Keep it brief and straight to the point with an open invitation for them to ask questions for clarification. They may have questions on their mind as you ask like, “what’s in it for me?” or “Do I have time for this?” but don’t let that effect your desire to ask.
Give yourself the gift of knowing. Asking is a skill just like any other. You’ll get more yes’s the more you ask; even just statistically.
Ask, and you shall receive.
