- Allowing people to help doesn’t mean you can’t do it on your own – it means you’re mature enough to admit that you shouldn’t always do it on your own
- You can learn more when you involve people who know more than you do
- Collaborating can create lasting bonds and relationships that wouldn’t be there otherwise
- Asking for help is a great way to share your passion about a project or topic with someone else
- It’s healthy to practice compromising from time to time
- Working together doesn’t mean you have to be hands off
- Your work may go in a totally different direction than you anticipated once you involve people who bring other perspectives and points of view, and that’s okay
- Getting help can free you up to do other things – allowing you to achieve more, not less
- The end result is typically better when you include other people
- Succeeding often feels better when there’s someone to share in it with you
