Life Lesson #15: Ask for help.
It is quite entertaining in our children’s growth and evolution – that they want to do more and more things by themselves. In fact, they can be downright demanding at times – “No! I do it myself!”
I wonder if some of that energy has carried over into our adult lives and careers where we believe we have to have all the answers and solutions and in some cases, have become afraid to ask for help – many times to the detriment of ourselves, our families, and our teams.
Asking for help doesn’t make you incompetent or weak, in fact, I believe it makes you stronger. One of the reasons I was promoted into one of my first leadership positions was because I was willing to ask for help. That lesson has continued to lead me to where I am today – I encourage you to do the same.
You don’t have to do life by yourself my friends, choose to have the humility to ask for help.
