At times, we find ourselves in situations or tasks that we think are to hard to achieve, accomplish or overcome. In actuality, the very task at hand may not be as hard as we think it is. However, before giving it a chance, we give up on it, thinking it is to difficult because we will not seek assistance.

Sometimes, its not always about us as individuals. Instead of doing things alone, sometimes, we need other people to motivate and support us at our lowest points, anchor and guide us in the right direction when things seem as if they are sliding down a vast mountaintop with no stopping point in sight.

Could you imagine yourself tumbling down a mountain with huge slopes in hopes of someone saving your life? Think about how fast you are tumbling and sliding, a speed so fast that you think you are at the brink of death. In your mind, you want to stop so bad but you cannot because you do not have the ability to at that very point in time.

However, thanks to a friend at the base of the mountain, he or she is there to save, help and guide you on the right path from danger.

In regard to life, in one simple minute, hour or day, things can go from the highest point of a mountain (which is good) to the base of the mountain (which is bad). Within that process, not to mention, if there are extra “humps” or rough edges in the mountain, this provides additional worries to the one thing you are already worried about. Thus, further increasing the opportunity for you to reach out to someone for help or assistance.

All in all, instead of giving up on things, reach out to someone for guidance or assistance to help you persevere through difficult times before things hit “rock bottom” or slide all the way down the mountain. Trust me, you will be glad you did in the long run.
