Since most things aren’t handed to you on a silver platter, you must ask for them. I encourage you to do this in this week’s Art Marketing Action newsletter.
Jack Canfield, in his book The Success Principles, says, “Ask! Ask! Ask!” (principle #17). He outlines five ways to ask for what you want:
- Ask as if you expect to get it.
- Assume you can.
- Ask someone who can give it to you.
- Be clear and specific.
- Ask repeatedly.
Of course he goes into greater depth and notes they are part of his book with Mark Victor Hansen, The Aladdin Factor. While I haven’t read that book, I can highly recommend The Success Principles.
