It’s as simple as that. If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no.
Are there any areas in your life that you’ve been hesitant to ask for help, support, encouragement, or opportunity? It’s often our own fear of rejection or even the fear of the unknown that could be holding us back. Yet what’s the worst that could happen? Someone says no? Okay then. They say no. Recognize how you respond to a situation like this. Acknowledge your response. And move on!
