Ask for Help, Maybe Cry Once More

I was recently on a conference call with new web-developers. I had just contracted with them through an online site.

One of the developers began by asking me questions like:

Who’s the target audience?
What’s your call to action?
What’s the goal of the website re-design?
What do people currently do when they visit the site?
What do you want visitors to do when they visit the site?

I was not prepared. I had no answers. I could feel my mood changing. I needed help. 

We could all use a bit of help every now and then.

Sometimes I wait too long before asking for help. Maybe my ego gets in the way—and that’s when I try to act as if I can live all of life solely on my own.

Life and its thousands of little drama pieces can result in feelings of being overwhelmed … like when your emotions flow and you whine, feel bad, complain, pout, lie, cry, deny, and fault-find.

That’s when you need to blow your nose, wash your hands, take responsibility, and tell yourself that the world isn’t coming to an end. Then decide which of these is your current frame of mind:

  • I can handle what’s happening.
  • I could use some help navigating life right now.

Get to know yourself.

Growing and maturing requires your effort and attention.

Think out your thoughts and talk with someone you trust.

If you find yourself in a situation where you’re carrying too much weight … and life feels like more than you can handle … and you’ve cried your share of cries, then consider asking for help. Asking for and/or receiving help is a sign of strength.

Who’s my target audience? You. Thanks so much.

The documentary, Man on Wire, provides an exceptional example of a man who could not accomplish his goal alone. He asked for help in both the planning and execution of a goal. time and money
