They think they must be strong.
They think they must know.
They think it’s a shame.
They think they would be perceived as weak.
They are afraid of being rejected.
Organizational psychologists call this the “SOCIAL COSTS OF SEEKING HELP.”
Research of Harvard-Wharton team shows, that asking for help can increase the perception of your competence.
Here is the way:
If you ask for help, feeling ashamed, you are sending the message:
“You have the power over me.”
If you ask for help, feeling disdain, you are sending the message:
“I have the power over you.”
If you ask for help with confidence and gratitude, you are sending the message:
“We have the will and the power to appreciate and help each other.”
You can learn how to improve your communications skills to be happy, sexy, healthy and fulfilled
