Someone may discover that the infrastructure in your business is weak, that you make less money than perceived, or that you’re a terrible speller. Whatever the case, it can be a humbling experience.
We all need to stop and consider that what others bring to the table may be their calling, their gift, their destiny. Accept it, let others fulfill their purpose just as you fulfill yours when you give. Don’t be a greedy giver, taking up all the blessings for yourself.
In life everyone needs to feel significant, like what they contribute means something special. News flash, you’re not the only person who can make a difference or get the job done. Don’t wait until it’s too late to ask for help. Give someone a chance to help you and reap the mutual benefits. Your life will be richer for it.
Remember, everybody needs somebody sometime…
DEYA DIRECTIVE: Stop pretending you don’t need people. We ALL do! Even independent America needs other countries. Real people draw other real people into their lives, which means they will embrace you for your strengths and your weaknesses. And when you are weak and need their support, let them help you. Don’t be the lone ranger if that is not what you really want.
