There’s an old school of thought (and a massively wrong one for that matter) that asking for help is perceived as a sign of weakness.
I’m talking about any type of help.
Be that when you’re struggling and you reach out to someone to get some extra support or even just something as simple as some help with something like moving house.
Everyone needs it at one time or another.
So I don’t even know how it ever came across as a sign of weakness at one point in time.
According to something I read the other day on resilience, that type of thinking might come about if you’re the type of person who likes to do everything on their own.
Whether that’s cause you’re too proud or too embarrassed to ask for help I don’t know.
But whatever the reason, something needs to be said. and the researcher summed it up perfectly:
“Try to remember that it takes courage to ask for help, and being in need simply means that you’re human.”
Which comes back to my first point – we all need it at one time or another.
Obviously if we’re talking about the more serious type of asking for help if you’re struggling with depression, then, if this applies to you, make sure you reach out – cause someone is always going to be there for you regardless of the time of day.
But if you’re struggling with something as simple as your workouts or achieving a bit of consistent progress, without feeling like it’s one step forward, two steps back then remember – it’s okay to reach out for help.
And I want to help you get over that plateau.
We all need a coach at one point of another just for the accountability, if not more than anything.
Yes the year is wrapping up soon, but don’t just put it in the too hard basket and the “I’ll get around to it next year”.
Lay the ground work now.
You’ve got 2 weeks of action that can lay the foundations for something bigger next year.
And it doesn’t have to be in person now like it used to be.
We can even do it via zoom if that works.
Interested in having a chat about it?
Reply and we can organise something and get started as early as next week.
