“There is nothing great that we can do in isolation, but so many of us try and do that. Asking for help doesn’t mean you are desperate.”
Do you have trouble asking other people for help? Are you afraid that it will make you look desperate? What if you used all the strength that was available to you? What would your business look like?
Today I want to give you some help in asking for help in your life and your business. It is hard to admit we need help, but effective leaders develop and utilize the people around them through healthy alliances.
Watch this video to hear the areas regarding getting help with your business. Then head over to our Facebook group to find out more about how to serve God in your business.
“Effective leaders use all their strength by recognizing, developing and utilizing the people around them. They know how to develop healthy alliances both with those on their on team and those on other teams.”
Asking for help can be tough to do. Not because people are not willing to help us, but because we don’t want to admit that we can’t do it.
Today I want to talk to you about strength.
My mean coach, Heather (mean not included), made me pick a word for the year to focus on in my business. I didn’t want to, but I chose Alliance.
There is nothing great that we can do in isolation, but so many of us try and do that. Asking for help doesn’t mean you are desperate.
5 areas in regards to asking for help with your business
- Get smart business coaching.
Yes, I run a coaching business, and I also have a coach for myself and I pay for coaching for my team as well. This is because I understand how important coaching, how important it is to have someone with wisdom to reach out to in a pinch.
- Household help
You may want to run a 6-figure business, and homeschool your 6 kids, and do the laundry and the dishes, and the cooking, and the cleaning, and on….and on…and on. Get some simple household help, because what you are trying to do may be inhuman.
- Project help from a specialist
Consider getting the help of a specialist for projects one-time that you know how to do, kind of know how to do, or don’t really know how to do it, get the help of a specialist instead of struggling through the learning curve on your own.
Let people know what you are doing and be specific, not in a desperate way. But if you are trying to help people with your business and the product you sell, it is good to let people know that you are trying to help people.
- What if you just asked God?
Just ask God to open your eyes so that you would see the help that you are looking for and in need of. God knows what we need better than we do, so what if we just asked every day, “God will you help with what I’m trying to do, in accordance with your will, will you help me?”
Now, when God answers our prayers and puts someone in our path and offers to help us, we can’t be so stubborn or egotistical to say, “No, I got this.” We need to accept the help and accept the gift from God.
Those are my thoughts on strength, and I’ll leave you with this questions:
-Are we using all of our strength?
-What if we did?
