I have a really hard time knowing how to ask for help. I grew up believing that if you wanted to make something happen, you did it yourself. And while I’m not faulting my parents or my education for my work ethic, far too often I find that when I fall short of a goal or make a mistake it’s because I didn’t bring enough people in to support my efforts.
Just shy of a week ago, I was brought to my knees and forced to ask for help. At first, it felt dreadful. Like I had a big scab, somebody pulled it off, and everyone around me was watching me bleed. Now, I feel relieved. I’ve been asking for help like crazy. As a result, I’m getting projects big and small launched faster, more fully, and feeling a whole lot less anxious throughout the process.
In the video below, I share my humbling moment – at the car wash. While I hope you will laugh along with me, I’m much more interested in hearing what is possible for you if/when you rally the troops to your side and remember that success is NEVER a solo sport. Will you drop a comment below and let me know?
