DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS
All my life I have been a do-it-yourself person. Not having to rely on others for resources is a good thing but we all need assistance sometimes. When it came to what I wanted to do with my life, I knew some well-connected people but for some strange reason, I never wanted to ask anyone anything. I felt like if they made it to where they wanted to be in their career alone, I could too.
I began to understand that it takes a lot already. It isn’t always just hard work and using only what YOU know. And of course there are some who will not, but there are some people who would be willing to help you in any way they can to see you move up.
Not too long ago, I started asking questions. I started getting information that I would have never gotten because I wasn’t on the inside. It was very useful and it made me think smarter about my decisions. I realized that I didn’t need to do it alone. Had I known what I found out sooner, who knows where that information might have taken me then? It’s all a matter of using what it is, as well as who it is we have access to, to obtain the necessary help and knowledge that they might very well be open to giving us.
