Think about a circle of people you interact with regularly. Your co-workers, perhaps. Maybe your extended family. Possibly the other people in your hobby group.
Without asking them, do you know what each and every one of those people truly wants, in their heart of hearts? What their deepest desires and ambitions are?
Probably not. So why assume they know yours?
The first step to getting what you ask for is to ask for it. The biggest reason people don’t give you what you want is they don’t know you want it. Speak up, tell them you want something. Ask them what they want, then work together.
Life is often easier than we make it.
