“Are you sure you don’t want to fix it? It’s going to be long trip.”
“It’s really not so bad, I’ll just review the directions before I leave. I will manage without the GPS.”
It was all good. Until I got lost.
My GPS was dead and the charging port in my car was not working.
That wasn't fun at all.
If only I would have known how simple it was to fix the problem!
When I finally got to the mechanic, I discovered that it only took 5 minutes and 5 dollars to change the fuse.
And like magic - my GPS was rechargeable.
And I had thought that they would have to rewire the electricity of my entire car…
That day I learned a big lesson.
Oprah Winfrey said it best,
“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”
There are so many things that we wish for.
Countless opportunities that we can only dream about.
It’s easy to assume that it’s beyond our reach.
We will be rejected.
It will cost thousands of dollars.
It will take forever and a day.
Stop and think -
Did you ever dare to ask?
It may take only 5 minutes and 5 dollars. Now that’s really no big deal.
What huge task have you been postponing lately?
What do you want so badly, that you’re afraid to ask?
Remember that we all have different natures, skills, and experiences. What is difficult for you may be simple for another. And you will never know if you don’t ask.
And you don't get what you don't ask for.
