Dorothy, the scarecrow, tin man, and cowardly lion, all found the courage to ask for help before they ventured onto the yellow brick road in search of the Wizard of OZ. True, the wizard showed them that they already possessed what they were seeking, but they each needed to walk along that road together in order to find the one person who knew the answer.
It used to be hard for me to ask for help, especially when I need it the most. I would rationalize, show indifference, procrastinate and then lose motivation before I realized that I had reached an impasse and was stuck. What may have appeared to be laziness, was really a mask for my underlying fears.
There is no shame in reaching out to others. I had to learn to ask for what I need because the consequences of not reaching out are far greater than the energy it takes to admit I don't have all the answers.
If the characters in the Wizard of OZ story had not asked for help and engaged each other along the way, the whole story would have turned out very differently. Just as your story will, if find the courage and make the choice to ask for help when you need it.BEST-PHOTO
