Ask for What You Want

Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.
Joseph Wood Krutch

Here’s the question: Do you think it does harm to ask for what you want?
Always, never, under certain circumstances? Be specific.

Practice: Visualize the parents and neighbors and great aunts and great uncles and teachers and strangers and buddies and business owners who taught you that it wasn’t safe to ask for what you want.

Identify what their lessons have cost you.
