Now, there’s nothing necessarily wrong with asking for help. In fact, the ability to ask for help when you really need it is a powerful skill that more people should have instead of trying to lone-wolf every problem they encounter.

Resist the urge to immediately ask for help. Make sure you’re doing your best to solve the problem or manage the situation yourself before you outsource that to someone else.

This will create a positive cycle of action and confidence that will keep your self-esteem at a healthy level — regardless of whether you were able to solve the problem yourself or with help.
