Have you ever felt stupid because you had to ask for help? Surprisingly, a lot of people feel this way and as a result, won’t ask for the things they want and even need. I felt this way for most of my life actually.

I’m not talking about asking for directions or how much the chicken sandwich combo costs. I’m talking about the big questions in life. Questions about how to improve your skills. Questions about how to make an impact on others. Or questions about how to overcome a major roadblock in your life.

Many married couples who struggle won’t even go to a counselor for help. They’ll try and solve it on their own and end up making the marriage worse.

I hope my offering of four solutions will help you overcome feeling like a chicken to ask and you’ll start to ask boldly for everything you need and want!

  1. Your message is spot on. Just starting out in my business the biggest challenge is to ask for help. I’m getting better at it and when I hesitate to ask, it’s because don’t want to look stupid to those I look up to. It stems back to childhood getting mocked for asking questions that to others the question seemed so obvious. That you for the message. I appreciate it.

    1. You’ll be a great entrepreneur! Most shame originates in childhood. A dose of self love and acceptance will squash it! Your customers will be rewarded because of it!! Good luck!
