No One Knows Unless You Ask

by | Aug 1, 2021 | Personal Development

Doubtless, you have goals you want to reach.

Maybe you have them stored in your mind, maybe you have them written down somewhere.

The question is…

Have you shared these goals with anyone?

It’s one thing if you aren’t stuck, if you feel like you’re getting somewhere with your objectives.

Quite another if you seem to be having trouble prioritizing your goals, identifying next steps, and getting into action. Quite another if you’re feeling stuck.

See, a lot of the time, we assume others know what we’re up to, what’s important to us, and what we’re committed to. And to be fair, some are aware. Some people know what’s important to you.

But most are so wrapped up in their own world that they’re not giving your goals any attention. If they don’t hear from you, they assume everything’s fine. No news is good news.

Meanwhile, you might be depressed, anxious, down in the dumps, wondering why you’re not getting anywhere with you relationships, creativity, business, or life…

We vastly underestimate the value of feedback when we find ourselves stuck.

Sure, we’ve all received bad feedback at times. We’ve all felt embarrassed asking about things that come easy to others who seem to have it all figured out. We fear judgment.

But categorically, the biggest breakthroughs happen in conversation. A simple, direct statement shared by another can change our lives. And it all begins with one simple step.

Said another way – if we don’t have breakthroughs in a specific area of life, it’s because we’re not in conversation.

Asking can be scary. But most people are just waiting for you to ask. I can guarantee it.

What is something you’ve been holding back from others? What aren’t you saying? What’s something you haven’t asked for yet?

Asking can begin a string of conversations that lead to rapid and unexpected breakthroughs.

Are you ready to ask for what you want?
