They say – you get “what” you ask for.
Unfortunately, that is just the 1/3rd of the truth.

How convincing, confident, and truthful are you? What words do you use? How’s your energy?
And lastly, it also depends on “whom” you ask for.
This is about your network.
What’s that person’s authority? How’s your relationship with them? And more importantly, what they know about you?
