I assert that the more successful a person is the more requests they make . When we make requests for others to help us, it gives us more leverage to maneuver, We are not alone. We can create a team around us, who also can make requests as well.We might not know even what we need to ask for sometimes. With a team of knowledgeable people we can brainstorm and create miracles that might not have happened otherwise..
Ask some successful people you know if they make requests? How often do they make requests. Look at people like Head of Co operations, Sales Managers, Leaders, Heads of States, Prime Ministers etc. Do you think they would get far without making requests?
The bolder the requests the better the chances of producing unique results. I’ll give you an example. I bought a house and the moving date was the date I had already scheduled doing a week long course in the states. There was no refunds. I could have stayed at home and lost my monies. Instead I made some bold requests of a group of people around me. I asked them to help me box all the stuff at the old house. I asked them to move me if I covered all the expenses.They accepted, then I asked if they would unpack for me as well.. They agreed. Then I enrolled some of the same people and other people I knew to do the repairs on the house that were needed while I was gone and paint as well. When I got home I had nothing to do but enjoy the fruits of their labor, My experience was that all people want to do is contribute and help. Now grant you people are busy and you will get some people not willing to help. If you keep asking and don’t let a NO stop you, you can create miracles like I did. It costs me the rental of the truck, paint and supplies the rest was from the goodness of their heats. It helped that two of the team were moving into the house and renting rooms from me..I also told them that the week I got home I would hold a party and would they all help me organize it so we could all have a great time. We all got to celebrate and have a wonderful time and they got acknowledged for the work that they had done for me.
I assert that you need to master the power of requests. If will help you be more effective. Look into your own life. Where are you stopped because you have a thought or belief you can’t ask some one to do that for you?. Make a list of projects you want done. Start small and ask for help. Keep asking until you get a yes. The tricky part is that you have to promise not to make anybody wrong if they say no. Thank them and move on. They may not be able to help you now and they might be able to help you later. When you listen to this podcast I share a story where i needed to have five reliable people to support me in a court case. I had to call fifty people before I fulfilled my requirement.I did the calls in two nights. I just thanked people for considering it when they said they couldn’t and moved on. It took something but I did it. Now when I need help I just keep asking. My attitude is that people want to help, I just have to ask the right people. What do you think?
Go for it! I want on my grave stone she burned out instead of rusted out! What do you want them to say about you?
Ask yourself are your actions and speaking in alignment with what you are committed to? Look at what are the habitual patterns that have that commitment thwarted? Are you willing to take responsibility for when it doesn’t go that way you want or the way you expected and clean up your part? Are you willing to let go of Expectations of yourself and others? What are you not being truthful about to yourself and others.
Our thoughts can be like a junk drawer-we need to take inventory and get rid of what is not useful! (wendy b)
