Ask Questions

Share This

When I was younger, I was afraid to ask questions. I feared it would show my ignorance, and I thought people would look down on me for “not knowing.” The problem with that was then I stayed in a perpetual state of “not knowing.” Experience alone is not always the best teacher. I eventually learned I needed to ask only once, get an answer to my question and from then on would be “in the know.” I made a commitment to bite the bullet and start asking questions when I needed to know something. I was amazed at how friendly and helpful most people were. The best part was I significantly increased my learning curve by seeking the help of others whose experiences simply were different from mine. Now I’m usually the first and last to ask a question in a group!
