126: How “Doing It Yourself” Is Holding You Back From A Breakthrough

Every breakthrough I’ve ever had in my life came from asking for help.

I have this story that I can do everything myself and never ask for help. And, to this day, this is THE THING that holds me back from more accomplishments and success- not to mention it also holds be back from more ease. Sheesh!

There was a whole host of things I wasn’t accomplishing regularly in my business. I had to take a good, hard look at the things I kept saying I was going to do but was NEVER doing. For months on end, these things were not getting done. And if they were getting done, they certainly weren’t getting done well by any means. Because I’m stubborn, and have this story that “I CAN DO EVERYTHING BY MYSELF!” I forced myself to stay small, stuck, and frustrated.

It wasn’t until I put my ego aside and got real with myself that I realized- duh, Christina- ask for help.

If you’re anything like me, it’s not easy. Asking for help feels like we’re failing! But, I can assure you, asking for help doesn’t mean you’re a failure- if anything, it shows that you’re so dedicated to the process and the outcome that you’re willing to ask for help so that you can get better, so that you can get more done, so that you can move forward in some aspect of your life.

Whether that means asking for help by seeing a therapist, hiring a coach, or hiring help (business coach, life coach, crossfit coach, powerlifting coach, personal assistant, etc.), or telling your dad to come over to fix your broken faucet- asking for help might be *the thing* that’s missing from propelling your forward.

Imagine if you hired someone who’s actually GOOD at doing the thing you keep saying you’re going to do. How much time might you save? How much energy might you conserve? How much more could you get done in that time if it was outsourced? Or, how much more progress could you make if you handed the reigns over to someone else and stopped kidding yourself that you could do it on your own?

After all, if you said you were going to do it by yourself already, wouldn’t have already done it?
