Happy Learning @ Home: Asking for help

In this episode we dive into what asking for help looks like and why it is important.

Podcast Notes:

Asking for help can be a big challenge for some, but what we need to learn is that we each have the ability to answer our own questions.

Questions are good! We need to let go of self-doubt, and question things relentlessly.

An example: If you need help with Form 1 to 6, I will ask a few follow up questions in order to make sure you’ve followed the instructions up until this point. That way, we know that we’re all on the same page and we know where to go next. It’s important to understand that resources such as video, or the examples provided, were designed to help you understand a topic or idea. So we want to make sure that you are getting the most out of these.

Don’t ever be afraid to admit that you don’t understand something. When you’re honest, it helps me to understand what point you’re at, and we can patiently work on getting you where you need to be. The only reason that I’m asking follow up questions, is to better understand what you need.

Sometimes it may take longer to grasp a concept, or to understand the examples you’re given. There’s nothing wrong with that. We will patiently keep working on it until it makes sense to you. Your resources and examples are here for you to refer back to at any time, as you need it.

Our goal is for you to learn how to trust yourself. This is a process that will take time, but will pay off in the end. You will see, as time passes, that you are less doubtful, you ask fewer questions, and you feel more confident in different subjects. When you trust yourself you will see the benefits bleed into different areas of your life. It is something that’s worth working towards.

While asking for help can seem scary, remember the purpose it serves. In the end it will help you reach each and every one of your goals.
