You will never hear yes if you never ask. What holds you back from making the impossible asks in your life? Usually, it’s because you’re stuck in the most dangerous place in the world…your comfort zone.

How to Get Out of Your Comfort Zone and Make the Impossible Ask

What is the Impossible Ask?

The impossible ask is the question that scares you the most. In fact, just thinking of asking it terrifies you. It’s the question that has never been asked before. It’s the question that seems…well impossible to ask. It’s crazy. It’s potentially embarrassing. It leads to unknown places.

It’s different for everyone. And asking it will change your life.

The impossible ask might be when you ask your boss for that huge raise. It might be when you ask a publisher to publish your book. It could be any number of things.

But most people never ask.

Today, I’ll show you how to bust out of your comfort zone and make the impossible ask.

    Matt, I’ve listened to a ton of podcasts over the last few years, but this one was one of the most moving for me. The combination of the stories (especially the piano) and your message and passion really made me think about some of the areas that I’ve been afraid to make a big ask in the past. And also, giving me confidence to trust God and ask big for things going forward.

    As you said, what’s the worst that can happen? They say no and/or you risk a few moments of embarrassment in exchange for the possibility for something magical. The guy being willing to make the request of the CEO was so crazy and yet I have probably found myself on the side of those jealous onlookers in the past who either never thought to do that or didn’t have the guts to ask.

      Isn’t it interesting that when you “find” the courage to do something remarkable, it always has a positive outcome of some sort? It might not be the desired outcome, but there is always a positive.
