If you don't ask, you don't get.

I posted this status on my Facebook page last week: 

I’ve learned that if you don’t ask, you don’t get.

…and I’m not surprised that some of my peeps chimed in and admitted that the asking part is HARD!

“I’m working on this. Asking is often hard!!!” ~Chasing Joy

“For me asking can be as hard as saying no. I am often saying yes when I should have said no. I often have a hard time asking for things from people…” ~Tarrisha

You’re not alone ladies because I can totally relate!

Over the years I’ve taken cues from my mom. If anybody knows how to ask for something, it’s her!

She’s the one who taught me this lesson and that “closed mouths don’t get fed.” This is the same woman with whom I like to go shopping because she inevitably asks a question (sometimes outrageous questions I wouldn’t have thought to ask or had the balls to ask!) that gets us some free or hugely discounted stuff!

Thank you, Mom, for your wisdom. 🙂

But even still, asking for what we need or want seems to be a big issue.

Why is that?

Why do we find it hard to simply crack our lips and say, “Help?”

Do we consider it a sign of weakness, a form of submission, fear of rejection, etc.?

A Reflection For You

In the meantime, I need you to repeat after me:

“I understand that I can’t do everything by myself and that reaching out to others helps me achieve my goals. I also open myself up to be of service to others as I see fit. In addition, I receive that which I need with open arms, an open mind, and much gratitude! I AM courageous!”

Okay so this should tide you over until the call. 🙂

Wassuper, it’s yo girl, Kesha and I believe we should Be the Fruit Loop in a world full of Cheerios because life is more interesting when you dare to be different and challenge what’s “normal!” I am wildly passionate about helping highly driven women pursue fantabulous relationships, juicytastic careers/bizzes, and authentically inspired lives.

Asking For What You Want…Why Is It So Hard?

Must Reads:

  • I have the worst time asking for help because I HATE needing help from other people. I need to repeat that mantra! 🙂

    • Yeah girl, repeat it til you’re blue in the face if you have to! Needing help isn’t a bad thing. How do you feel when someone else genuinely needs help? Do you have negative thoughts about them? Do you think they’re weak, etc.? It may be a good exercise to see where your thoughts came from about wanting help AND about those who seek help.

      (I’m talking to myself as I’m writing this you as well!) 😉

  • Awesome post Kesha! T-7 days until our workshop debut! 😀

  • Hi Kesha, there are a lot of people who find it difficult to ask for things. I don’t actually understand this, it may be shyness or hesitation or nervousness or anything else. It also maybe that the approach people take to ask works against them and spoils the entire attempt.
