Help!

One of the big mistakes I often repeated in the first 20 years of my life was not asking for help when I was stuck. A few key people in the early years of my life pretended to “know everything”. Not knowing “what to do” or “how to do” was not an admirable position to be in. I did not know what to do when the knowledge I possessed did not have the answers. I hesitated to seek help. I suffered silently.

One big enabler of my journey in the next 20+ years of my life has been asking for help when I was stuck. I no longer feel ashamed to seek help.

When you ask for help, you do not fail. Rather, you refuse to fail. It took me 20 years to realize that. Better late than never.
