Episode details

In this episode, I shared about the great benefit of ASKING for help and how it can be easily ignored - perhaps because of the simplicity, the negative conditioning created by penalties suffered when we asked for help in the wrong places such as from a fellow student in an examination hall or even the societal expectation triggered by the individualistic North American society. I illustrated the power of asking for help with five personal stories where I reaped the benefit of asking for help - one of which even landed me an unadvertised job. As an immigrant or anybody at that, there is help waiting for you everywhere if only you can be confident enough to ASK. And that may be the bridge between your current state and the future you desire.
