I Can Do Everything Myself
In the last lesson, you learned how treating yourself with kindness helps you reach your goals. Today, you’ll discover how letting others help you can benefit you in many ways.
In our culture, it’s extremely easy to feel like you need to do everything yourself. To feel like you can’t ask for help. To feel like asking for help is a sign of weakness. And if you’re especially competent, maybe you can do many things without the help of others.
And so, you never ask for assistance. You try to do everything on your own, thinking that if you can get by without the help of others, that it’s a sign of strength.
But in reality, not being able to ask for help is a sign of weakness. The truth is that none of us can do everything on our own. We all have limitations, blind spots, and areas of weakness. None of us are perfect or able to accomplish all things on our own.
Your limiting belief is that you can do everything yourself without any help.
We inherently need other people, and your inability to ask for help actually keeps you from accomplishing as much as you could. If you teamed up with others, your combined strengths would allow you to achieve far more than you could on your own.
