Some people give up their search after 1 negative response. Most give up before they even begin, out of fear of the negative response in their imagination.
Human beings are great creations, but in this instance we would get a lot more done if we were void of reason & emotion.
A robot can ask 100 people for help and not quit after 10 people decline or someone laughs at it. A human gets angry, depressed, has to mentally regroup, talk about it, cry, and procrastinate.
Be a robot and aim for 100. You won’t even get there because you’ll have your Yes.
