- If You Only Ask with Mark Victor Hansen Phyllis Ayman, MS/SLP, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM, CMDCP 54:43
Are you reluctant to ASK because you fear rejection? Have you asked and been rejected?
That’s happened to all of us at one time or another.
Mark Victor Hansen coauthor of The Chicken Soup for The Soul books series ultimately turned into huge worldwide success setting record book sales of over 500M and more than 100 licensed products.
But it wasn’t an easy journey. The book was turned down by publishers 144 times until one publisher finally agreed to take it on.
Through all those failures, it was wisdom received from Ross Perot that became the backbone of their future success. That within each rejection lies an opportunity to learn, refine, and improve your story and the way you tell it. That could be a guiding mantra for any of us.
It takes practice, determination, grit and the willingness to ASK. Ask is the basis of the learning, refinement and opportunities to improve your story and way you tell it.
In his book ASK: The Bridge from Your Dreams to Your Destiny, cowritten with wife Crystal Dwyer Hansen he tells us that your dreams can become your destiny when you learn the secret art of asking!
Hansen says, “You were born with a destiny. Your job is to discover it. Know exactly how to ask for what you want and get it.” There is an art and science to asking. A language that you have to master in order for the Universe to deliver your desires.
Many older adults have untapped, buried, or undiscovered dreams or desires. They deserve to live a purposeful and fulfilled life in their Elderhood years.
Mark Victor Hansen in his book ASK can show you the way.
