By Kathy Dempsey
In 1993, my sister sold her house and was looking to relocate closer to me.
One afternoon she stopped by my house and I said, 'Four doors down there is a house with a circular driveway. Wouldn't you like to live there, Virginia?'
She responded, 'Yes, Kathy, but there is just one problem. The house is NOT for sale!'
I responded back, 'So!?! Let's go ask them if they want to sell their house.' After an argument back and forth about this outlandish idea and that the worst outcome would be that the owner would say no, my sister agreed to walk down the street (Note: Way behind me!) and knock on the door.
When the elderly lady came to the door, I said, 'Hello, my name is Kathy Dempsey, a neighbor from up the street. My sister has just sold her house and is looking to move in this area. She likes your house. Would you be willing to sell it to her?'
Despite the woman's startled response, within a week, the unimaginable became reality; a contract on the house was signed.
Sometimes people don't ask for what they really want in life. They often become paralyzed because they think that their dreams are not possible. They fail to acknowledge that hearing, 'no' maybe the only risk in asking.
Take 60 seconds and ask yourself, 'What do I really want in life? Am I afraid to ask for it? What's the worst possible outcome in asking?' What can you do today to move ahead and ask for what you really want?
Asking for what you really want is 100% your choice!
