If You Don’t Ask, You Won’t ‘No’

The Coach’s Chronicles are the trials, tribulations, and triumphs that we all experience each day – we just need to take the time and look for them, experience, and most importantly – learn from them. I share an important ‘coaching moment’ with you each week to bring about some light of inspiring experiences that I have had the opportunity to live-out.

The Coach’s Chronicles: If You Don’t Ask, You Won’t ‘No’

Why are people so afraid to ask for something? It’s likely they are afraid that they will be affected in a negative way – they might look needy, foolish, or even stupid. It could be any combination of all these self-imposed excuses, but truly they are more afraid of experiencing rejection. They are afraid of hearing the word – ‘no’.

The unfortunate effect regarding this situation is that these same people are rejecting themselves in advance. Maybe it’s through past experiences, but they are saying ‘no’ to themselves before anyone else has a chance to. Never assume – ask – the only risk you take is the answer ‘no’, but many more times than not, the answer will be ‘YES’. You won’t ‘no’ until you ask.
