Let me answer this straight away: You need to ask!
It’s that easy.
Simply asking should get you a lot, but if you want to bring this up a nodge you will need to apply 2 major points.
The first point is:
Be clear and specific when asking. Put some effort into it and create a rounded question that tells a story and gives reason. Don’t just say “I need money!“. Be clear about how much, why and when you need it and communicate this.
Define it and describe it as detailed as it makes sense. That is much more powerful and attracts far more attention. It doesn’t matter if you ask yourself (setting goals) or someone else, being precise works like a magnet and gets everyone involved.
If you want someone as your client, you need to ask for it. There is a big difference between the questions:
“Would you be my client?”
“Because of your current situation and the perfect timing I believe we can be of real value to each other and I wonder if you would consider working with me?”
Which of the two questions do you think is more powerful and more likely to bring a positive result?
The second question shows that you thought about it, investigated the situation and understand its consequences.
As better you describe the question, as better will be the result.
The second point is:
Ask with conviction (faith)!
Believe that you will get what you ask for.
Let’s add this to the previous question and that could go like this:
“Because of your current situation and the perfect timing I believe we can be of real value to each other which is the perfect condition for working together. When should we start?”
Sounds bold, right. Have you ever listened to children when they want something. That is exactly what they do. They never think about that they might not get what they want and more often this is exactly what happens.
Of course sometimes you will not get what you asked for and that is okay. But using the adult/child technique will get you almost everything if the why, when and how are clear and correct.
So the right formula reads following: Make plans like an adult and believe in them like a child
If you use this formula for setting goals (asking yourself) or for others, the results will be spectacular.
Use it right and you will have almost anything you want.
What’s your question?
