Sometimes reaching for help is the best decision one can take. Life set us challenges that we might not seem to be able to easily overcome on our own.

We are just jammed into a reality that keeps us trapped. We hate it, we do not like it, we want to change it…but yet we stay.

Life is beautiful and a true blessing, but it does not mean that it is not challenging. Sometimes we feel stuck and all we need is a word of encouragement to get over and keep going. This means that you are going to need some help, you need somebody to speak to you, you need somebody to lift your motivation up, you need somebody to let you see things from another prospective, you need someone that tells us “come one, you can do it”. However, many people won’t reach out for help because of pride or ego without realizing that pride and ego have nothing to do with it.

Ask for help not because you are weak, but because you want to remain strong.

The dilemma that some of us face is that “there are people believe in you, but you do not believe in yourself”. No matter how small or big your goal is, achieving it starts with you. You want to lose weight, go on the floor and get some push ups done. You want a better career, take the time to invest in your knowledge first. You want better financials, stop watching funny cat videos on social media and start following people you can learn something from.

This is a lesson I learnt the hard way. Today I am here writing you these words because someone spoke to me thanks to which I got unstuck. I leant that “you cannot see the label on the box when you are inside the box”. In other words, others can help you see what you do not see when you are stuck into whatever situation you might be today.
