Yes, you can.
- Just believe in yourself and you’ll get there.
- There’s nothing in the world that can stop you from getting there.
- Dream big and you’ll achieve big.
No, you can’t.
- You’re not the right color.
- You’re too short.
- It’s too costly for you.
Strike a balance.
- It’s possible, but you have to get so talented no one will notice your color but only your talent.
- You can do it, but be ready to jump higher than the tallest fellow on the pitch.
- You can afford it, but be ready to cut down on your expenditure and forgo a lot of stuff you would normally want to buy.
Yes, you can; but be ready to roll your sleeves and get to work, whatever work entails for you (studying, connecting, investing, praying, fasting, sowing etc).
Do you feel comfortable asking for help? Do you with ease receive and appreciate help from others?
Let’s share our experiences in this area.
If your answer to the above questions is no, then read on as we examine some of the reasons why people feel uncomfortable with this.
- You’ve always done it your way. You don’t want another person’s way out.
- You’re used to doing it alone. You prefer the solo route.
- You once asked for it and were rejected; you’re scared of rejection.
- You’re too proud to admit you need help.
- You think asking for help is a sign of weakness and insufficiency.
- You have a false sense of responsibility; you don’t want to inconvenience anyone.
- You don’t want to have to pay for it one day; you don’t like helping others yourself.
- You just don’t know how to ask for help. You walk down to the fellow and then you walk pass them tongue-tight.
- You don’t know how to receive and appreciate help; you’re afraid to mess up.
Whatever your own reason may be it is important to get to the root of it and get over it.
It feels very miserable to be in need of something someone wants to offer, yet be held back from asking for any reason whatsoever.
The world is full of people who want to help you. Do not shut them out of your life. Give them the opportunity to experience the joy of giving.
