Leaders ask for help

I believe that every person who is called by God to achieve a specific goal, has the qualities to be a leader. In fact the Word of God says that we are the head and not the tail. To me this means that we are created to be leaders and not followers. Leaders in the sense of helping each other to move forward in life and helping others to get closer to God.

Put in a different way, we will always be at the top and never at the bottom because in Deuteronomy it says: “The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.” {chapter 28:13}

The reason for writing this post is to share with you that you are called to be a leader and that you should ask for help if you want to accomplish your goals (that which God has called you to do).

My way to encourage you to ASK for help is to help you become aware of some of the benefits it has. I am going to share 3 good reason why you, as a leader, should ask for help and/or support.

 
Reason number one: Focus

When you ask for help or support it helps you to stay focused and energized because you don’t have to do everything all by yourself. By sharing some tasks with others who are qualified to do it, you help yourself to not get overwhelmed or burned out. You can stay in the flow and keep having fun.

 
Reason number two: Opportunities

Did you know that by allowing others to help you ,you actually give them the opportunity to use or develop their own gifts and talents? In fact, you are giving them the chance to shine together with you. That is a wonderful blessing!

 
Reason number three: Imperfection

Asking for help makes you vulnerable and proofs that you are not perfect. But it allows you to connect with everyone else around you because they are also not perfect. But the beautiful thing is that helping each other gives room to GROW. Isn’t that great!

 
In the end it all comes back to allowing God to work through others and help us see (or experience) that He is here with us to help and bless us. Hallelujah!!!

Question….who can you ask for support today?
