I have been following Ejovi Nuwere’s “Lessons in Poverty” series. Though I don’t always agree with his worldview, he has interesting first-hand experience and his life is certainly an inspiration for what is possible.
In his latest post, he writes about the power of relationships, and a humble and simple request for help from someone else.
Whenever you want something that seems out of reach ask everyone you know if they can introduce you to someone that can help you get it. Do this always and for anything, just be willing to help others when they ask for something in return. I admit Iâ€™m not very good at asking for myself or for others and I think its because of my background. But Iâ€™m reminded everyday of the importance of it. Its amazingly effective.
