During a recent visit a really good friend gave me a copy of Bob Beaudine's book, The Power of Who. Bob's premise is simple: You already know everything you need to know.
In chapter 4 Beaudine states with simplicity: Most people never get what they want for three simple reasons:
1. They don't ask. No one can help if they don't know what you want.
2. When they do ask, they ask the wrong people. For some reason, people are uncomfortable asking their "Who" for help [Those are the people with the specific skillset or professional training to assist you in getting tasks completed.] As a result, they'll ask most anyone except their friends, who are the only ones with a motive to help.
3. When they do ask for help, they ask too vaguely. Even if I'm motivated to help a friend, I can't do it when I don't know what he or she wants.
Bob Beaudine, The Power of Who, pg. 51
Before you catch the author in his own words, of course you do not know everything you need to know. If that was the case, then you would not need to ask your network of friends for assistance. His point is that you are looking for the fairy godmother to appear that will make all your dreams come true. You already have a network of people that have their own connections and activating those will bring resources required to move forward in any area.
A very interesting premise and one worth pondering.
