I am open to allowing others to help me because I know we are stronger as a community than as individuals.
I have a limited amount of time and energy; we all do. I let go of the idea that I somehow should be able to do and be everything. I increase my productivity by being selective about where I devote myself.
Yet even so, sometimes the demands of life require that I ask for help. Because I know that it is a sign of maturity to recognize when I need help, I am unafraid to ask for it.
We all have our strengths and weaknesses. When I admit where my weaknesses lie and allow someone else to come in and shore me up in those areas, I become stronger and better able to deal with any challenge I may be facing.
In return, I share my strengths with others so we may all be stronger. When others genuinely need my help, I am eager to give it.
We are like migrating geese. Life's journey can be far too demanding if I insist on being the one in the front all the time, guiding everyone else and diverting the wind away from them.
I take my turn, but then I step back, knowing that I must be tuned in to my own limits to maintain momentum and complete my tasks.
1. Am I able to gauge when I need help?
2. What excuses do I need to let go of to ask for help when I need it?
3. Have I surrounded myself with people whose strengths complement my weaknesses?
