The Power Of Asking For Help

During the holiday season, many of us become accustomed to offering help, charity, and service to others. This is a time when we find oursevles in the spirit of sharing - and the pwoer seems to be far reaching! One thing that often gets overlooked in the process fo seasonal charity, however, is the reverse of giving - asking. Many people find themselves busy, exhausted, and burnt out at a time when we should all be experiencing a quite festive and joyful mood!
Asking for help is an important way to manage stress and drama at this time of year. Many people feel that they have to go above and beyond to please others without taking time to ensure they are in good health. People can overestend themselves and take on more than they can handle - especially as holiday festivities and duties come around.
If you're one of the many people who tends to take on the roles of many to please the few, this is the perfect time of year to find the courage and clarity to ask for help and explore new ways of getting things done.
Here are a few things to consider when asking for help...
  • Many people love being aksed to help. When you ask someone for help, you are telling them that they are valued and that they have what it takes to get the job done right.
  • Asking for help is a great way to share with others and to ensure that everyone gets a chance to put their own energy into the events of the year.
  • Asking for help clears stress as it lets you know for sure that other people are on your side.
Asking for help is a strong, communicative, and empowering action... and it's one that can have far reaching positive effects!
