Ask and You Will Receive


"If you are not moving closer to

what you want in sales or in life.

You probably aren't doing enough asking."

Jack Canfield, author


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Ask and you will receive   

Determine the things that you want to achieve and set your course to achieve them. 

To move closer to your goals you have to ask. 

Ask for the help that you'll need on your success journey to achieve your goals. 

Ask for the business to fuel your success.  

Ask for the sale and close the transaction.  

Ask for the listing.  

Failing to ask reverses the momentum and derails your success journey. 

Asking creates forward momentum and moves you closer to your goals and success.  

Ask with professionalism, ask with a purpose and ask often.  

®2010, Lou Ludwig, Sales and Management Consultant Success Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Author

A life principle I love and have taught me children, (too well).  Sometimes we should add: "Ask carefully for what you want, because you are likely to get it."

Great reminder that all to often, we don't directly ask for the business.  We talk a lot about the busienss but when it gets right down to it, we sometimes fail to ask.

Hi Lou, you are right! I don't ask as much as I should but I'm starting to turn that around. :)

True, so very very true...I think it is somewhat hard for all of us to ask for business....but, we need to do it!

It is common sense - if are thoughts are vibrations then those thoughts will attract the means to achieve what we want

I grew up in business managing buying departments in the grocery industry.  It shocked me how many times I took over a new team of buyers and they were afraid to ask for a deal from their rep.  I used to always preach: "What's the worst thing the salesman can say? No."  Is "no" so bad.  If you don't ask you'll NEVER get it!!!

Thanks for the post Lou,
