Most people have a never-ending mountain of work to get through and would likely feel immense relief if their workload were in some way lessened. Reluctance to ask for help when we need it can keep us bogged down in more work than is necessary and ultimately lead to burnout. Whether you’re afraid of seeming needy or incompetent, or you just don’t trust others to help you, here are some strategies to help you reach out for assistance when you really need it.
How to shift your thinking about asking for help:
Overcoming your reluctance to asking for help requires ongoing practice, reflection, and integration of new mindsets. By unlearning old, unproductive patterns that prevent you from reaching out for assistance when you really need it and relearning new ways of operating, you will feel more supported and less overwhelmed at work.
Do you ask for help when needed?
Have you ever focused on helping your coworkers, friends, and family?
