Ask and you shall receive. The guideline is so simple and straightforward yet we all struggle to do it. I know a few people that would rather walk around the shop to find an item rather than going to a staff member and ask for help (I am also occasionally a victim to this).
But why don’t we always ask?
There’s only 2 possibilities(There are more but I’m focusing on these two). Pride and shame. We are sometimes too prideful to ask for help because we may feel that we seem weak or not good enough. It’s also difficult to ask when one feels insecure and that others may look down on them.
I can tell you now that the 2 fear-factors in asking is rather silly, ludicrous even. When asking for help is not a sign of weakness but actually a sign of strength. Knowing that you can’t do it on your own can be tremendously beneficial to you.
Some might look at rich people and see that they became successful because they had the money to get there, but that doesn’t mean you cannot ask for the same things they get. They may join a university, you can apply for a scholarship/bursary. They may find their true love through connections, you can pursue the woman of your dreams and ask her out. They may have money to lavish themselves in luxury, if you are perhaps in a financial struggle there will always be someone you can ask to pull you out.
If you complain that you do not have, then you haven’t asked. We were created to be in community with each other and to help each other out. There will ve people that say no but there will always be that someone who may turn your life around just by saying yes.
