I am a proud, stubborn Viking from Norway
Yes, that's what I am. A proud, stubborn Viking from Norway. We had Vikings long back here in Norway. My impression is that they fought a lot and drank a lot. I don't drink anymore so that's not what I'm talking about here. I like to fight towards something that matters to me, and sadly I've always thought I had to do everything by myself. And that's so wrong.
Here in Norway lots of us think the same. Maybe from the ancient times when we fought like Vikings. We don't like to get help. We like to do it all by ourselves. Maybe because some of us consider asking for help as a weakness in our personality (not me of course).
What I've discovered is that when I forget my old habits of not asking and reach out for help it strengthens me. Here in WA I always get help when I ask for it and for every time I dares to ask I feel so much stronger and powerful. I think it's because I see that I have the ability to learn and grow and achieve my goals here. And every time I learn something new that's useful to me I feel empowered.
So asking for help is not a weakness. It's a strength because it enables me to grow as a person and become more of who I truly am. This is an experience that WA and maybe only WA can offer in a business contexts. I'm truly grateful for that.
Thank you all for helping me become the person I was supposes to be. I hope I can do you justice.
Have a great day my fellow members of WA.
