Hi Darling Tribe,
How are you doing today?. I’m not here to pressure you or release some tension on you. However, It’s my responsibility to ensure y’all are taking intentional steps towards achieving your goals this year. I hope you’ve written it down just as much as it’s written on the tablet of your heart. Run with it, Tribe.
To get to the finish line, you have to keep running with your goals but if for any reason you can’t run, make sure to walk with it but ensure you’re doing something and not static about it.
Here is a short story for your heart💙
A mother watched her daughter try to lift a bucket of water. She failed with each attempt. After some time her mother came by and asked, “Are you using all your strength?” “Yes!” the daughter cried. Her mother looked at her and said, “No, you are not, I am here waiting and you haven’t asked for my help.” The mother went in to continue what she was doing. The daughter kept trying to lift the bucket of water until she had her wrist broken and only then did she cry out for help. When the mother heard the noise, she ran out hurriedly to meet her and comfort her. The mother eventually told her the outcome of not asking for help when she could. She got her wrist broken, the bucket got broken and even the water eventually became a waste.
I know many of us reading now are quite sitting on this table. I hope you have learned a lesson today. Don’t wait till you get your wrist broken before you ask for help. Today, I need you to declutter your mind from everything you’ve heard about asking for help. If you do not get anything on this blog today, I want you to take this one thing with you that it’s super okay to ask for help and you don’t have to feel bad about it.
We all come across ‘rocks’ in life that won’t budge. A helping hand goes a long way. All we have to do is ask. Unfortunately, this simple request is often as hard as lifting the bucket.
Growing up I always wanted to do everything myself. I was out to prove something. To prove I could do it alone. To prove I didn’t need help. I just didn’t know how to ask for help even from my own family until life kept returning me to that position that I truly needed people – their help.
You won’t be awarded a badge of honor for choosing to wear yourself out when you could easily get help. Somehow the accomplishment is worth more if you don’t have help. I can see now that this is ridiculous. Very ridiculous! I also know what it’s called, ego.
Ego just sits there and offers bad advice. It might say “Eniola, if you ask for help, you’ll look weak.” “If you ask for help, people will think you’re not smart.” “If you ask for help they might say no.” “If you ask for help you’ll be a burden.”
Once you’re able to drop-kick ego, the fear associated with these questions will disappear. As the help flowed in, my life became easier, a little more fun, and a lot more successful.
My darling Tribe, I know the year is moving on a fast pedestal. Kindly note that if you need help to hit your goals, please don’t hesitate to ask from the right source. Even the disciples asked for help when they could no longer control the storm. So tell me, who are you to feel you’ve been made to do life alone?. The soldiers told Simon the Cyrene to help Jesus carry the cross and He(Jesus) never refused the offer. My dear, wisdom is profitable to direct and I hope you will let wisdom guide you in all your doings.
Lastly, there will always be that moment in our lives when we need the assistance of others. When that moment pops up, don’t be too rigid to ask or accept the help you need. Honestly, that help might be all you need to move into the next phase of your life. Thank you for stopping by to read. I hope value has been added to you today.😊😊😊
Before you go, if you find this post helpful, please kindly share it with friends and folks around. I appreciate your all-time show of love, commitment, and consistency in reading from this space. Love and Light as you journey through the new week.💙🌟
Ps- I hope you will help someone this week and you won’t bulge the need to ask for help too. We need each other to survive.
Yours in purpose,
