Overcoming the Art of Asking for Financial Help: Conquering Hesitation and Building Confidence

Asking for financial help can be a daunting task for many, and I am no exception. Despite having collected a couple of lakhs from friends and family for a startup idea five years ago, I still struggle to ask for monetary assistance when I need it. Unfortunately, the startup failed to take off, and I have been unable to repay the promised returns in five years, which has only added to my reluctance to ask for help.

Even when my close friend Balaji asked me to repay him for his personal needs, I couldn’t bring myself to return his money, which only further compounded my hesitation to ask for financial assistance. However, as I work on my latest construction project, where I am building Studio Apartments, I find myself in a difficult situation where I need 15 lakhs to complete the last leg of the project, and I have no choice but to seek financial help.

The fear of rejection and the possibility of being seen as a burden or failure can be overwhelming, but I know that I have to find the courage to ask for help to complete my project. To overcome my hesitation, I have been reading articles and watching videos on how to gain strength and confidence in asking for financial help.

I have learned that asking for financial assistance is not a sign of weakness but rather a display of courage and strength. It takes courage to admit that we need help and to reach out to others for support. We are not meant to go through life alone, and sometimes, we need the help of others to achieve our goals and dreams.

As I prepare to ask my friends and family for financial help, I remind myself that it is okay to be vulnerable and to ask for help. I must also ensure that I am clear about my intentions and that I communicate my plans and the expected returns.
