Why am I so scared to ask for help?

Why am I so scared to ask for help? I’m afraid to ask my network for help in my career search.

TOO MANY OF US FALL FOUL OF THIS SILLY RULE:

Because where does not asking get us?

  • FAILURE
  • Let me say that again. FAILURE

Oh also:

  • Inaccurate information
  • Self doubt about our methodology & approach
  • Thinking that ‘we must be the only one’s thinking that’
  • Relying upon our own feeble ‘belief’ that we can be a lone wolf and not think we need a pack

And reality shows us that:

Not asking for help led me to:

  • Having severe issues with Anger Management
  • Low Self Esteem from age 15
  • I became aware of it at 23
  • I didn’t get help until 27
  • I didn’t really fix it until recently

Nice. More than 5 YEARS wasted.

Who’s the idiot now?
