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?

Wealth Insight 2009-07-10 Why is it so hard to keep it simple? In my experience, everything worth knowing in life is simple. Why then do our teachers and the media make it so complicated? I think there are several reasons: desire to keep valuable knowledge to yourself an agenda to mislead others so that you can profit In my opinion, these stem from fear of scarcity (the myth that there is not enough to go around). But perhaps the greatest reason of them all is ignorance Which comes... Read more...
