How to Ask For Assistance on the Road to Success

April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 269

Success takes effort and energy, but the secret is to know that all of the effort and energy does not have to come from you. In fact, to truly be successful, you have to get help from others. Asking for assistance is necessary for success and can be done in four easy steps. Know you do not have to go it alone, that the real king of success is community, that the key is to strengthen your strengths and finally learn to outsource your weaknesses.

Do not go it alone

There can be no long lasting success achieved when you go it alone. Many people think that being an entrepreneur means doing all the work yourself putting in long hours and only getting help when you can afford the help. This is backwards thinking. Pay for the help now so you can afford more help in the future. True success only comes when we have the courage to ask for assistance.

Community is King

If you want to be successful you have to remember that community is king. Too many people think that the key to success is getting the right training or knowing the right resources, but this is false. Do not get me wrong, it is important to learn the right trainings and have access to the right resources, but you really only achieve success when you recognize that community is king. You need to find a community to be part of, where you can engage with others and get eh assistance you need from others.

Strengthen your Strengths

One of the mistakes we make along the road to success is to think that we need to learn to become good at all aspects of our business. This is just not true. We each were created with unique skills and abilities, things that we are good at and things we are not good at. The important thing to remember in order to be successful is to not worry about those things you aren't good at and instead focus on strengthening your strengths. You already have a natural ability at these things, why not polish your skills here and become the best at the things you are already naturally skilled at. Strengthen those strengths.

Outsource your weaknesses

Now that you are focused on making your strengths even better it is time to ask for assistance with the things you are not good at. The American education system has it backwards. They reward you for getting better at the tings you are not good at instead of helping you excel at those things you are good at. Do not worry about your weakness, pay other people to do those things you are weak at. There are people out there who are skilled at the things you are not, let them assist you with those things and stay focused on your strengths. This way you spend you time wisely and you help others to do the same. So stop worrying about your weaknesses, ask for assistance with them and outsource them to people who like to do them.
