Not many people enjoy asking for help because of the fear of rejection or what they think people will say. The general thought is that people who ask for help are weak, so, a person who really needs help will rather keep quiet than ask for help.
Genevieve Magzine publisher, Betty Irabor says something about this and it is so thoughtful.
On Sat, I met up with a young friend and we spoke about the plans I had to tour Nigeria with my book, Dust to Dew. I was pretty much overwhelmed by the scope of the tour and the various goals I wanted to attain by the last quarter. We sat down and brainstormed for hours about the HOW ,WHAT, WHERE AND WHEN before my friend left to catch a flight to London.
Since that meeting I have hardly had a moment to catch my breath. Two days after our meeting on sat we pretty much now have 10 states, 5 organisations in Lagos as well as prominent individuals ready to host book readings and signings within their networks. The GOODWILL is so immense that it is humbling…we really must stop underrating GOODWILL.
Our first stop is UYO in May…. The Lesson here is; when you feel overwhelmed or underwhelmed ask for help, share with your TRUSTED network, speak up, and pray. Sometimes all you need is fresh perspective. It’s okay if your mentor is wayyy younger… Remember… No one person truly has a monopoly of wisdom or knowledge…
Better believe what they say; two heads are better than one..
Are you feeling overwhelmed right now? Have you been praying and fasting about it?? But you do know prayers alone wont cut it? What ACTIONS have you taken? Again, remember that nothing Moves till you Move. Prayers work better when you move into action.
