Have you ever stopped yourself from asking for help because…
I should be able to do this on my own.
No one else will do it right.
Good [moms/employees/entrepreneurs/daughters] don’t ask for help.
Or maybe you’ve thought that if you ask for support you’re a failure. That needing help means you’re not good at what you’re doing.
Here’s the good news, my friend: these are just stories you have come to rely on to keep you safe.
It’s “safe” to do it all yourself, because then you don’t risk rejection (people saying no to your request for help).
These stories aren’t the truth.
The truth is that you are good. And you are worthy of help and support.
You are worth investing in – whether that means asking family members to help out more around the house; asking for support at work; or asking for something you want or need.
I recently had the opportunity to break through my own barriers around asking for support.
I needed some support in the business, and I had a block around asking for help from someone who has supported me in the past.
My story was, “I can’t ask for support AGAIN from the same person!!”
But I broke through my own story.
And they said yes, they would love to offer me the support I requested.
All I had to do was ask.
And I realized that part of growing is becoming willing to ask for support when I need it.
And so – I’d love to ask YOU for support, my friend.
Right now I am rolling out a beautiful interview series with heart-centered business owners + community leaders in Jersey City, NJ.
Would you share about the series on social media?
