Why Asking For Help is Humiliating| Sheila Ram Mohan | Best Life Hacks | Lumiere 24
If there is one thing that I hear people complain about often, it is the fact that they are so over-worked, and “under-helped” and how they have to do everything themselves…and more often than not, the fact is that people simply don’t or won’t ask for help. Asking for help is something that turns even the most self-assured person in to a nail-biting mess. And that is the focus of this video: How to learn to ask for help.
