2 Reasons We’re Afraid to Ask for Career Help
Recently, we launched a contest. The winner is guaranteed to get a new job in 2011. How is that possible? I’ll be working with them privately and non-stop until they get that job. It’s the ultimate career coaching experience. What a way to start the New Year. If you’ve ever checked out what it costs to have a career coach working for you like this then you know winning this will save you hundreds (even thousands, depending on how much help is needed) of $$$. Plus, my reputation’s on the line – so you know I’m going to do what it takes to see the winner succeed. Why then have so few people decided to enter? I think there are 2 reasons:
- We think the fact needing an expert to help us means we are weak or failing in some way – a.k.a. we feel ashamed asking for help.
- We’re too dang proud to admit we need help.
- Pull out your own tooth?
- Operate on yourself?
- Represent yourself in court?
