Giving and Accepting Help Is Vital to Your Success

"It now appears that Help is the make-break point between sanity and insanity."
-- L. Ron Hubbard

You can have many problems regarding the subject of help, two of which are:

  1. Fear of being helped
  2. Frustration when trying to help others


The second problem occurs with doctors, consultants, accountants, teachers, church leaders, attorneys, counselors, employers, employees, family members and others. You try to help people, but they reject your help.


For example, if you are wealthy, your friends and family members might ask you for loans. But if you are smart, instead of giving loans, you offer a better form of help: financial education.


Successful investors want others to make money through investments. They agree with the ancient Chinese advice, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."


Whenever these investors' family and friends accept this help, they also become wealthy. However, sometimes, they reject this help. They say, "Investing is too hard" or "It's too risky" or "I don't have the time."


Physicians also have this problem. They tell patients to stop smoking, eat more vegetables and exercise. Patients often reject this helpful advice and just want drugs. In fact, some patients change doctors if they don't get the drugs they want.


You might know several ways to help people with your advice. And when people will not listen to your advice, you probably feel frustrated. You might even give up on giving help. You might say, "To heck with them!" "They don't deserve my help." "I'm too good for them."


If the frustration gets worse, you might even feel a little crazy. You cross over the make-break point between sanity and insanity!


Another reason people dislike help is when they are betrayed.
