Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
I have a friend/client who just had one of the most difficult 24 hours of their life and we happened to have a marketing meeting with her at the same time and she just needed some extra help. She just needed someone to listen and to be supportive to her. And you may be sitting there thinking, “I’m a dentist, I don’t really want to hear about all these other things going on in this person’s life.” However, we’re all human beings, we’re all in this together.
If you face every day like this, you’ll be able to help more people while building authentic relationships.
That’s really what pays off in the long term. It’s not just about…
- What can I do for my own agenda right now?
- What can I do for my own business?
- What can I do for my own bank account?
It really needs to be: How can I put their best interest first, and how am I able to help them?
If you’re having one of those days and you are encountering a business conversation, just be open and honest about where you’re at so that they can help you. Asking for help and asking for what you need in life doesn’t make you weak, it makes you strong.
If you’re in a position where you need something, or you just need someone to talk to, or need a hand, or need help with marketing, you can ask. And people can say no. If they’re not in a position to help you, that’s fine too. Don’t be a hero. Don’t be someone who goes through life only willing to give, and never willing to accept anything because there’s a GIFT in GIVING. Let others help you when they are willing and able to help you.
