Are you at an impasse? Are you stuck or stymied? Are you considering throwing in the towel?
Before you give up, remember that help is always available.
If you ask respectfully, you can usually find someone who’ll reach out a helping hand. Perhaps they have a skill or specialized knowledge that they’ll help you learn or it may be that they can be a sounding board for you.
You can search the Internet, visit your local library and either perusing the books on your own or ask for help from one of the librarians. There are friends and family members to talk to—you never know who knows that little piece of information that could make all the difference to you. Or, perhaps they know someone who can be of help to you.
There are memberships in professional associations that can give you the boost you need. “Rubbing elbows” with others interested in your same industry can give you insights that you may not be able to get on your own.
And, there’s good old fashioned putting on your thinking cap and brainstorming—with or without trusted friends, family, and colleagues. Remember that in these sessions no idea is too off the wall and no thought is too crazy!
Your homework today is to look for the help you need. When getting help from others, remember your manners—be respectful and grateful for their help!
You can do it—the progress you’re making proves that you have what it takes to be successful!
I’m so proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
