Hi. I’m Keith Ferrazzi, author of “Never Eat Alone.” One of the most important keys to your success is your ability to be bold. Be audacious. Now, I don’t care whether it’s going out on a date, or a job, or asking for a raise - I know it’s scary. But here are three simple steps that I think are going to help. Number one, my dad used to always say, “Never be afraid to ask.” The worst anybody could ever say is “No.” Listen, if you don’t ask, I know what the answer’s going to be. It’s “No!” Number two, find a role model, and envision them when you’re thinking about stepping out and being brave. And just ask yourself, you know, what would Keith do? What would Jane do? What would David do? And then I think you’d get some courage. Number three, just practice. Just do it, practice asking. Any time you have a chance, a little chance, push yourself. You’ll get used to it, it’ll be great. For more tips, visit nevereatalone.com.
