Dare to ask for what you want. There are many things that you can have if you just ask. And sometimes when you ask, the answer may be “no.” But sometimes, the answer may be “no, but you may have this instead.” And the alternative may just be something that you would like to have, or it may not be. But here is the thing that you need to remember – if you didn’t ask for the first thing, the option of the second would never have come up. So dare to ask for what you want.
