Have a look on Pride Vs. Proud! Why don’t highly successful men capable of executing every single day like to ask for help? We have been conditioned not to ask for help. We don’t even ask for directions at a gas station when we are lost.
What makes you think we are going to ask for help when it comes to life or business? We have this thing we call PRIDE.
Pride stops us from asking for help. We don’t want to feel less than anyone else because we don’t have all the answers. We think we always have to hide our weaknesses and be strong.
We want to pretend we have our shit together at all times and as a result we don’t ask for help. I have learned that once you discover your pain you will finally be on the path to realising you can do things on your own.
You have to figure out you can’t get to the next level on your own. You must be willing to surrender and humble yourself so you can get perspective.
When I was killing it at real estate and I thought I was the man, I had to humble myself… life humbled me to ask for help.
I didn’t want to ask for help. I didn’t want to appear weak but it was at that point I knew I had to do something different.
I had to find someone to help me get out of the mess I was in. I had to humble myself and ask for help. I determined then that I could leverage other people’s experiences to improve my own.
Here at the Next Level Experience, we leverage each other’s experiences. We share our pain, struggles and success. That is the second thing we have a hard time doing as men – being PROUD. We love to beat ourselves down and focus on the shit that isn’t working.
We have a hard time feeling proud of being able to access that feeling of being proud. You see, PRIDE isn’t the same thing as being PROUD. Pride is something that stops you from asking for help while being PROUD gives you energy to reach for the light at the end of the dark tunnel.
If you’re an entrepreneur who’s struggling right now, maybe you need to let go of your pride and ask for help. Let go of your ego and gain new insight that can get you to the next level.
At the same time, start being proud of what you’re doing every day. Be proud of your hustle to make money and that you can provide for your family. Be proud that you can make it one more day. Feel the energy of being proud every day.
Don’t discount what you do. Every day a business fails and goes out of business. If you are still standing, that means you made it one more day and you should be proud. Don’t ever be too proud to ask for help.
Many people out there are willing to offer help. The most successful people out there are the easiest to access because they have nothing else to lose and everything to gain by helping someone else.
If you have reached a certain level of success, help someone out. Share your insights and success stories. Don’t rob someone else of experiencing you.
If you are experiencing pain, let go of your pride and ask for help. We are only as good as the people we surround ourselves with.
- I am proud to have a group of men who have allowed me the privilege of guiding them to the next level.
- I am proud I have an opportunity each day to work on myself so I can continue doing what I am doing.
- I am proud you have taken the time to listen to my messages and for that I am grateful. Thank you.
