Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness

Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, but an example of strength. We are programmed into thinking that something negative will come from asking for help whether we think someone will say no they won’t help, or you feel like asking for help means you are failing. This is not the case; someone may say no but hopefully, they will provide an alternative or direction for you to find the help you need.

A few things have happened to me over the course of a few months that’s really made me think about this topic and although I coach and guide people, I understand how hard it is for people to ask for help when completing tasks. We are all busy, we all feel strapped for time whether that’s at work or personal reasons, but would you help someone if they asked you for it. I’m hoping that answer is yes.

Communication is key, next time you need some help, ask in the right way, explain the reason you are needing the help and what you hope to receive from them remaining clear and concise.
