Help is Available
by: Ned Wicker

People ask for help and wait for a reply, but understand that real help is what is required to deal with the situation. That simply means that help is available if you are WILLING to accept it. What do you need help with?

Are you WILLING to allow the help? Being WILLING means that even if you don't agree with the opinion of the person offering the help, you are at least WILLING to consider it. So often we seek an answer, but when it comes we don't want to accept it. For example, some addicts want help, but they don't want treatment. They have a variety of excuses, the most popular being "it doesn't work." They are not WILLING.

Alcoholics Anonymous has a great saying, "It works if you work it." Help begins with the person seeking help, WILLING to accept help and embracing the change that powers help. I used to work for a man whose business motto was "Eliminate the excuses." That required him to examine all possibilities and move in the direction that would best suit his company. He would often tell me that he never falls in love with his own idea. Try not to fall in love with your own opinion. Try to become WILLING to do something even if you don't want to do it.

If you seek, help is available. But you have to be WILLING.
