On This Week’s Momentum Friday, We Discuss How To Ask For Advice:

- The importance of realizing that sometimes your hard work and planning alone isn’t enough. Successful people know how to ask for advice and realize they need help.
- The six keys on how to ask for advice without annoying the person you are requesting.
- Why it is vital to understand the end goal of the advice you are seeking.
- The importance of maintaining a friendly, humble and positive tone of voice.
- Why those who approach advice getting with ego often fail to learn from their mistakes or advice. Instead, they use that ego to defend their opinions and ideas.
- A common mistake people make when asking for advice is that they come unprepared.
- Often the advice you receive will be something you didn’t expect or is contrary to your what you wanted to hear. It is vital to be open-minded to the feedback.
- The most important step in seeking advice is the person you choose to be your mentor, coach, or counselor. Choose a mentor who is well versed in the topic you are seeking help with and has the time to adequately address the issue.
- There is no meaning in a pice of advice if you don’t act on it.
