Don’t feel bad about it
Asking for help is difficult for most people. Fortunately, I’m not one of those people.
It's not a bad thing. Although you may feel embarrassed, you shouldn’t. Easier said than done, but guess what? We can’t do 100% of everything by ourselves.
Strength & humility
Rather than being viewed as a weakness, asking for help can be a sign of strength & humility. No one knows everything.
By showing a willingness to learn and showing respect, you can increase your chances of having a positive response from whoever you’re asking for help. I know this from personal experience, and I’m not afraid to ask for help when I need it.
It’s a superpower
Asking for help is a superpower that is hidden in plain sight. Meaning, most people are too proud or egotistical to ask for it.
I've used this to my advantage throughout my career, and it's helped me gain valuable knowledge and skills, which in turn has helped me become a better person.
So, if you’re struggling with something - whatever it is - don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for help.
