It can feel scary to ask for help. It can make you feel vulnerable or perhaps even weak. But do it anyway! Here’s why. Asking for help shows modesty, which is a highly valued characteristic in professionals. It also makes you more likeable. For our subconscious it makes more sense to do favors for people we like and it makes no sense to do favors for people you don't like. What if someone asks you for a favor you don't like and you are forced to do it? A cognitive dissonance arises: in order to solve the problem, our unconscious adjusts the opinion it has of the person. "Since I did you a favor, I like you."

We learn to share and analyze other points of view and to contact other people. When you are in a position of great responsibility, accepting support helps you to reduce stress and make better decisions that benefit not only yourself but others as well. Leaders, politicians, celebrities, managers, teachers, etc. Most of them wear a thick mask to hide their fears. 𝗜𝗧 𝗜𝗦 𝗨𝗣 𝗧𝗢 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗕𝗥𝗔𝗩𝗘 𝗢𝗡𝗘𝗦 𝗧𝗢 𝗔𝗦𝗞 𝗙𝗢𝗥 𝗛𝗘𝗟𝗣.
Helping and being helped goes beyond the solution of a problem. Move your daily life for the better by asking for help and it will spread to the people around you. This makes you more open, more generous, more caring and therefore more successful.
I wish you a great day!
