How to Ask For What You Want

ASK for what YOU WANT

ASK for what YOU WANT

Once you have discovered what you want, now you need to know how to get it.

I found a few tips in Build it Big by Direct Selling Women’s Alliance where they reference a book called, The Aladdin Factor by Mark Victor Hanson.

Ask as if you EXPECT to get it. Ask with a positive expectation. Ask with an attitude that you have already been given it. Ask as if you expect to get a YES.

Assume you CAN. Don’t start with the assumption that you can’t get it. If you are going to assume, then assume you CAN get it, that your prospect will say YES. Never assume against yourself.

Ask someone who can help you get it. Qualify the person. “Who would I have to speak to, to get…?” “Who is authorized to make a decision about…?” What would have to happen for me to get…?”

Be clear and Specific. Vague requests produce vague results. Your requests need to be specific. When it comes to money, assk for a specific amount. When it comes to when you want something, don’t say “soon” or “whenever I get around to it.” Give a specific date and time. When it comes to a behavior, be specific about what you want from others.

Ask repeatedly. One of the most inportant princilpes of success is persistance-NOT GIVING UP. Whenever you ask others to participate in the fulfillment of your goals, some people are going to say No. They may have other prioritirs, commitments and reasons to not participate right now. It is not a reflection of you. Ask again at a later date or keep on finding new people to ask.
