“A little boy was having difficulty lifting a heavy stone.
His father came along just then.
Noting the boy’s failing attempts, he asked, “Are you using all your strength?”
“Yes, I am,” the little boy said impatiently.
“No, you are not,” the father answered, “I am right here just waiting, & you haven’t asked me to help you.”
“The strong individual is the one who asks for help when he needs it.” - Rona Barrett
“Asking is the beginning of receiving. Make sure you don’t go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won’t laugh at you.” - Jim Rohn
“Asking for help does not mean that we are weak or incompetent. It usually indicates an advanced level of honesty & intelligence.” - Anne Wilson Schaef.
