People who ask confidently get more than those who are hesitant and uncertain. When you’ve figured out what you want to ask for, do it with certainty, boldness and confidence. Don’t be shy or feel intimidated by the experience. You may face some unexpected criticism, but be prepared for it with confidence.
Even if you are feeling the polar opposite of boldness, fake it! This act, repeated regularly, has amazing powers that will help you become the person you wish to be.
