What’s holding you back? You’ve been wondering all day or even weeks.
Go ahead and ask that question to the right person. This is what I’ve been telling and even convinced myself to just ask, send that e-mail.
No more holding back.
Lessons Learned by Asking
I’ve learned to muster courage and gain knowledge in numerous replies just because I ask somebody–apart from myself. And I have more lessons to share with you.
1. Send the Message. No Matter.
Often I find myself on a website, then a question will pop up or a site I’ve been visiting for a while wondering if I can bother the owner with my pesky queries. (Not that I want to do it on purpose.) In the past few days, I’ve sent many queries and even made a call.
And I’m glad I did. Now I’m no longer wondering and even have those nuggets of knowledge to share for others.
2. Befriend Patience and Make More friends
Once I send that e-mail, I’m fidgeting on my seat eager for a response to read, perhaps the next day at least. Even an auto reply gives me hope that my letter would be deserving of the reader’s precious time. And if I’m lucky, then, maybe just maybe, I’ll have that very-much anticipated reply in my inbox. (It’s like opening a letter straight from the mailbox after a month of delay.)
When that happens, I’m fidgeting all the more. Aside from making unnecessary movement, I’ve learned the art of befriending people by writing letters that I think too much to say the right words–pleasing, inquiring, and encouraging.
3. Speak from the Heart
For a simple question, I try to go straight to the point. This is what I do for companies or organizations; nonetheless, I don’t forget expressing my gratitude for the time spared and devoted to answer my queries which may or may not happen at all.
Even if you didn’t receive any response, not even an auto reply, just by practicing the art of gratitude–being thankful–is more than enough.
It makes me feel good inside like I’ve done a good job in making happiness a reality for someone.
Don’t forget to say those kind words because this can be just one of the few salad days of a person or even become an omen of the first of many happy moments to come. Words of gratification never fail to uplift a downtrodden heart.
I’ve said it all. My questions have been sent out to the lucky recipient but I’m more fortunate of the opportunity to just let my heart out.
Come to think of it, I’ve just develop a habit of writing personally, a change from writing a blog post. So I’ll keep on sending that tailored letter for future recipient.
How about you? do you still have that question as a draft or it’s been taking you so long that your longing for an answer that have past into oblivion?
