There will be times in all of our lives where we will get stuck…it happens.
What happens next is important. There are three ways to get unstuck and which path you choose is important.
- Get yourself unstuck
- Ask someone to help you get yourself unstuck
- Ask someone to get you unstuck
You will learn something from each of these paths, and each of these paths will leave you with unrealized possibilities.
For instance, getting yourself unstuck will teach you resilience, but you lose the opportunity to learn from someone who can think about things from a completely different perspective. You may miss out on a better solution.
Asking for help will allow you to benefit from the power of collaboration, but you lose the opportunity to surprise and impress yourself by taking the challenge head on.
We all get stuck but whichever path you take, it’s probably better than resolving to stay stuck.
