Why the struggle to say these three words?
“I need help.”
Are you afraid to ask for help? I admit, it was something I struggled with for a long time. I thought that by asking for help, it somehow lessened who I was and what I was capable of doing. Wow, how wrong I was. Those three words are incredibly important and by embedding them into my life, it truly transformed it. The weekly #HealthTip is to ask for help!
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Quite the opposite actually. When you can admit that you need help, it shows incredible strength – in character and in mind. Guess what happens when you decide to ask for help and are open to receiving it? Life becomes infinitely easier. Yes, it’s true. Not everything is meant to be done alone, in a silo, or in isolation. If you are sick and someone offers to bring you chicken soup, accept the offer graciously. If you are hauling bags of groceries and the clerk offers to help you to your car, accept the offer graciously. If you are find yourself struggling to do the laundry, make dinner, feed the dogs, plus all of the other million and one things you have to do, then by all means, please say these three words, “I need help.”
Or maybe you need help on a more broad scale to help you live the life you know you are meant to live? A health and/or life coach may be just the type of help, support and accountability you need to get you to where you want to be. As a health coach, I guide and mentor people to take responsibility for their health and support them in making sustainable life choices. It is not a one-size fits all approach, it’s customized to each individual. It is about helping you develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for your body, and helping you to create a life that fuels you in body, mind and soul. It is Health Coach week, so if being healthier is on your “To-Do” list, then consider scheduling a complimentary discovery call with me, or another Health Coach to see how it can help you get to where you want to be.
It is worth repeating, by your willingness to ask for help, you show your true strength. There is no shame in asking for help, there is no failure in asking for help. In doing so, you empower those around you to give the gift you need the most. We all get by with a little help. It’s the only way.
