My birthday weekend was great. I invested it with family, friends and new friends.To top it off, I just released my new book, GENIUS POTENTIAL. The partying, the love, the food was all great, but what really stood out to me was the response I received from my family and friends. I asked them to all help me push the launch of my new book. I knew I could reach more, with more people on the team.
Anyone that experiences success, never does it in a vacuum, SUCCESS IS A TEAM SPORT! Over the last couple of weeks I have been asking my family and friends to help me spread the word about GENIUS POTENTIAL. Whether is was sending an email, tweeting, facebooking or just talking about the book, so many people pitched in to help. Would they have done it, without me asking? I'm not sure, hopefully the people in my life feel I add value to people's lives and this book project would be another tool to add to someone's personal development tool box.
But I wanted to guarantee my success, so I used those three powerful letters, A.S.K! Over the years I have learned the power of asking for help. I know many people don't like to ask for help, but you are missing out on a WEALTH of knowledge. See, when you ASK, what you are really doing is "Always Seeking Knowledge." Once I sent the email out asking for help, so much knowledge came back to me. One person said "Will have you thought about contacting this person." Another person sent me a video about book promotions. The help I received was overwhelming.
I want to encourage you to ASK! Don't go the journey alone, what ever situation you may be facing right now, even if you feel you have it all figured out, still ASK for help, you never know what you may learn in the process.
This weekend reenforced for me the power of ASKING!
