Home Reflections I allow others to help me.

I allow others to help me.

I release the need to try to do everything myself. Other people can do things just as well as I can, and I am relieved that they are ready and willing to help me out. Letting others help me brings with it a whole world of benefits, starting with giving me more time for myself!

At home, I let my children help with the household responsibilities. I start when they are just toddlers with small tasks that they can easily achieve.
 
As they grow, I teach them how to sort their own laundry and then take care of it themselves. I show them how to cook and clean and then assign tasks for them to do each week. I show them the importance of organization and let them help keep things organized.
 
As a result, they learn responsibility and each child feels that he is an integral and needed part of the family.
 
I allow my spouse to help me, too. In fact, we help each other however we can. Household work is always more fun and gets done in half the time when we do it together! Also, when I am feeling down, my spouse shores me up again.
 
At work, I let my co-workers help me. I delegate tasks to those most suited for it, knowing that they will do a great job. The whole team benefits when we share the work and responsibilities in this way.
 
When I am trying to solve a problem, I seek advice from those who may have been through the same dilemma. I let their wisdom and experience guide me in my decision.
 
Today, I give up the superman persona and welcome help from those who would give it.
 
Self-Reflection Questions:
 
1.    Do I tend to resist the help of others?
2.    How can I get my children involved in helping around the house?
3.    How can I delegate tasks more effectively at work?

About twelve years ago I was exposed to a statement from Kurt Hahn the father of Outward Bound experiences – “your disability is your opportunity”. At that stage it did not mean us much to me as today. When it really struck me was last year March when I attend the Power morphing and Read more...

This is from the first one ...  “I would like to urge anybody who is interested in Internet marketing and Internet businesses not to waste their time and money in ventures like these, since I am living proof due to about 30 trials within 3 years and with nothing new, that I am aware of, on the Internet that can be tried! I think that I tried it all! If you... Read more...
