Getting Help


Why don’t people ask for help? Maybe it’s because they don’t feel like they need it. Perhaps they would rather do it themselves. Sometimes it is a bit of proud denial!

The fact is, if you want to accomplish something significant, you will need some help. Steven Covey in his classic book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, addresses the three stages of personal maturity; DEPENDENCE, INDEPENDENCE, INTERDEPENDENCE.

The first stage is DEPENDENCE. I come into this world as a dependent person. I need other people to survive. I am totally dependent.

As I mature, I develop INDEPENDENCE. I can do it on my own and stand on my own two feet. I am no longer dependent on others for what I need. Independence is freedom, and it is at the heart of American culture. We celebrate Independence Day every Fourth of July!

But there is a third level of maturity, INTERDEPENDENCE. This is the coalescence of independent individuals into an interdependent community. Interdependence requires releasing individual independence and embracing a team commitment to a greater mission. Interdependence requires giving and receiving help from others. The synergistic effect is that much greater outcomes can be accomplished.

What possibilities might open if you were willing to release your independence and get help? Do you want to achieve more? Do you want to make a significant difference? Then get some help!


Clarify your vision, and then enroll and inspire others to help bring it about.
