  1. Why reinvent the wheel when you can ask someone to borrow their blueprint? We are so blessed to be able to reach out to people around the world via the Internet–heck, in high school I had to go to the library to look information up!

  2. You are right, people are often stuck becuse they don’t ask for the help they need to get information or the push to move forward.

  3. You are right, people do like to help. I read in a book that letting someone do you a favor is a way to get them to like you.

  4. PBS Kids used to have the cutest little song ‘commercial’ that said, “Ask for Help” — whenever I’m frazzled, that jingle always pops into my mind as a reminder! 🙂

  5. Great post.. I have been having a very difficult time with my 17 year old daughter and I keep putting off taking away her cell and her boyfriend because I don’t want her to be mad at me but you are right I NEED TO TAKE ACTION NOW!! Because if I don’t she won’t buckle down and do what she needs to do to finish school she is supposed to graduate this year but her GPA and the credits she needs will fall short if she does not start doing what needs to be done to make up what she is missing.. Thank you this gave me the motivation that I need and it felt like you were talking to me and only me.. I really needed this today..

  6. I think planning every step makes a lot of difference, and asking for help is probably the most difficult but crucial step towards executing the plan successfully. Thanks for motivating.

  7. Great idea to ask for help. Sometimes I get overwhelmed if the project is monstrous and taking that first step is tricky. Thanks!

  8. Every time I try to take action someone’s drama gets dropped on my door step and kills me mood… So I give up 😛

    These are great tips though~ Love this post. Someday I’ll be back on the horse and will use this!

  9. Thanks for the great tips. Sometimes I just get so overwhelmed on what to do next and I end up doing nothing.

  10. wonderful post with great tips; it is hard for me to ask for help as well; I always wanna do as much as I can, no matter how hard it is or how long it takes me.. but I’m slowly learning to accept help and will soo follow some of your tips. Thanks

  11. I definitely could use this reminder! I always try to do things on my own but sometimes it is better to just ask for help from others.

  12. I know so many who are still stuck in that planning stage. I think for some it can be hard to progress to the next stage without assistance or assurance they can do it.

  13. It’s always important to ask for help when you need it!

  14. Great post. Starting a project is often the hardest part.Good suggestion to ask for help.Sometimes it is hard to get over that feeling of imposing on someone, but people really like to help.
