Asking for help


I don’t do it as much as I could. Or should. You may be the same. Asking for help feels like you’re being needy. A burden.

But what if it’s not?

What if there are people out there—on your email list, following you on social, in your building or on your list of contacts—who would love to help you?

If you asked, they’d be delighted to answer your questions. Share your page. Recommend your practice. Review your book.

What if some people get as much out of helping you as you hope to get when they do?

My suggestion, to you and to myself, is to try it and find out. Look for opportunities to ask for help, and to appreciate the help you get and the people who give it.

If you don’t feel comfortable asking for help, remember this. . . When you are good at asking, you allow others to enjoy giving.

What a wonderful feeling for both of you. At this or any time of the year.
