Here in San Francisco, there is an awesome food truck called Bacon Bacon. I have been obsessed lately, as those of you who are my Facebook friends can attest. Bacon grilled cheese, bacon jam, bacon log of bacon bacon…which got me thinking about bringing home bacon…
How can you bring it home if you can’t/don’t/won’t ask for it?
We’re coming up on the end of the year, and I’m wondering if you’ve gotten everything you’ve asked for. Did you move that courage-cranking needle at all? There’s still time to get those year-end asks in, as well as to get ready to make 2012 your most courageous year yet. And to give you a little nudge, here’s a tip for today:
Practice on yourself.
I don’t care how you do it. In a mirror, on paper, into a tape/digital recorder, whatever. Ask yourself for something and see what happens. Did you immediately say “no way”? Probably not. Did you waffle over saying “yes”? Possibly. If so, practice convincing yourself. Did you reply with a resounding “YES!”? Well done.
I’ll bet that if you practice asking yourself, you’ll get a little more courageous asking others. Which will make it easier to bring home more bacon.
