There are times in life when you may be too fearful to ask for what you want. Dr. Robin says this fear of asking can prevent you from moving ahead and getting exactly what you need in your life.
Don't be afraid of rejection, Dr. Robin says. Whether you're looking to get a promotion at work or hoping your spouse will act more lovingly toward you, Dr. Robin says to put aside the fear you have about asking for what you want, what you need, what you long for and what you desire.
"It's about living in the truth so we can benefit from the truth," Dr. Robin says. "It's important to take the fear of asking out of our life and out of our heart and empower ourselves [by] asking for exactly what we want."
