Men are horrible at it, but women are amazing with it. What is it, you are probably asking? Well, it's quite simply, asking for help. Whether it's help building a business, fixing an appliance, getting directions, a ride, or just about any other thing you can think of, women are quick to seek help, while men will waste an enormous amount of time before admitting they need help. Don't believe me? You ever been lost in a car with a man or woman? The man
will drive past the same gas station three to four times in an attempt to self-navigate, all the while the woman is somewhat remaining calm enough to say, "Why don't you stop at the gas station and get directions?" Ummm because he's a man and men think we know how to overcome being lost or repairing a leaky faucet. We have a hard time admitting that we need help.
Sadly, in 2020 men took their own lives four times more than women did. There isn't much more heartbreaking than anyone thinking suicide is their only hope. Suicide has probably impacted you in some way in your lifetime. A parent, friend, relative, schoolteacher, etc. The guilt, the hurt, the mountains of questions we ask. It's hard when you lose someone to suicide. I am no expert, and this writing wasn't meant to be about suicide, but if you need help, please ask for it. If you feel there is no one to turn to call the national suicide prevention hotline at 1-800-273-8255. YOU MATTER!
When we ask for help, we feel like we are burdening people. Nothing could be further from the truth. Most people enjoy helping others. It doesn't always have to be monetary help either. It can be with a project, helping someone move, giving advice, especially in an area you have some knowledge in. Be someone that ask for help and offers help as needed. There's not much that feels better than helping someone in need.
This is my offer to you. I offer coaching services where I help people and I have decided to start doing this online as well. I am building out a community as I write this post. If you need help in an area of life, post a comment or if you don't like publicity, feel free to use the contact form under the social tab. If I feel like I can help I will, but at the very least I can point you in the right direction to get the help you need. Sometimes coaching is the answer and sometimes it is not the best solution.
Lastly, if you have ever wanted help building a business, being the CEO of your own life then checkout my new project. (New Project) I will build half your business and teach you exactly how to build the other half.
Remember there is nothing wrong with asking for help. Don't let pride get in the way. You got this!
