Ask For Help

Listen Now:

There is an unwarranted stigma around this next tip that I want to address. Too many people are afraid to ask for help. I don’t know if this is out of pride, fear, or something else, but the sooner you get comfortable asking for help the sooner you will benefit from the value around you.  

Many people view asking for help as a weakness because it implies that there is a deficiency in your capabilities, when in reality, it’s usually viewed as a strength.  It requires a certain confidence to ask for help, and people appreciate that. Additionally, acknowledging your own limitations makes you seem more human, and people can relate to that.

So the next time you are struggling with something, mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, seek the opinion of someone you respect, and ask them for advice.  Not only will you probably get some useful advice that helps your situation, but you will actively be growing the relationship by laying a foundation of trust and reciprocity.   

Beyond that, asking for help also brings others happiness, as well as increases productivity. So give it a try, and ask someone you trust to help you out.  I think you’ll be surprised by their willingness to offer their services!
