When was the last time you dared to ask for something your heart truly desired?

  1. awesome ! i love the way you write, the way you encourage people, the way you speak about those thing which we know but we ignore, i read this article because the heading attract me “all you had to do was ask”. it happens with most of the time that whatever i want, even it is a little thing i don’t ask because somewhere in my heart i think what people think of me, they might laugh on me, i think the main reason is confidence on your self. really amazing piece… 🙂

    • Thank you for the kind words Sumit! Asking indeed is a daunting task, hopefully it gives you the courage or the motivation to take the leap of faith. Once one builds confidence in themselves then they can avoid worrying about what the world thinks about them 😉

      Thanks for the lovely thoughts!
