This year I took my husband to throw axes. I thought it would be something fun and neat to do. What I didn’t realize is that it was a lot harder than it looked.
I threw the ax several times without success and I was about to give up until the instructor taught me a technique that I never tried. I was willing to throw in the towel because I failed a few times. That’s how life is, we try, try, and try again but sometimes we don’t see results. Learning to ask for help to help figure out a better approach is the best thing we can do as people. That’s why it’s important to have mentors, positive people around us, and people who we look up to so when we are constantly making mistakes they can look at our life from the outside not to criticize but to offer advice. If I would have gave up on throwing axes then I never would have learn a new skill. At the end of our date I was able to throw an ax and land it on the bulls eye. In life I used to think that I could do everything on my own but in life we were not made to do things alone. So now if I need help I just ask. Sitters, housekeepers, and various service business were created because someone wanted to make the lives of others more easy. Yes there are a lot insane services that people pay for but imagine if you had help what would your life look like? Now imagine not having help. Help is good, allowing your pride to get between you being honest with yourself on needing help is only going to hinder you from achieving the things you want. In life sometimes you have to keep pushing towards the things you set your mind to. Learn to ask for help. Don’t be ashamed of the things you can’t do. New things takes practice just be willing to be patient with yourself. If it’s hard take a break but don’t give up.
“Never let your ego get in the way of asking for help when in desperate need. We have all been helped at a point in our lives.” ― Edmond Mbiaka
