Top 5 Enlisting Help Quotes

Quotes are one of the many things that I collect. I culled my collection to share with you my favorite ones about enlisting help. Everyone needs help at some point in life. Help comes from internal or external sources. What have you noticed?





Enlisting help from . . . beginning:

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”




Enlisting help from . . . our attitude: 

“It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.”

William James



Enlisting help from . . . a new day: 

"I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning." 

J.B. Priestley



Enlisting help from . . . others 

“Remember, we all stumble, every one of us.  That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.”

Emily Kimbrough



Enlisting help from . . . ourselves:

“You are the solution to every challenge you have.”

A. Drayton Boylston

Lao-tzu's is my favourite. Oh yes, how far we can go, how many lanscapes we can see, how delightful journeys we can enjoy if we dare to make the first step.
Happy to read your post

Love these quotes! I love quotes that become a mantra for the way we live our lives.

Beautiful quotes Linda! While I find them all special in their own way, "new days" are so symbolic to me. I always tell myself -and my kids - how anything is possible in a brand new day. Didn't know this quote and it will become a print on my board.

"Small hinges swing big doors." W. Clement Stone

So great to hear from all of you. I can see that I'm not alone in being a "quote" fan!

@Nacho- Yes! A favorite of mine. Nothing like taking that first step to set things in motion and helping us get past feeling stuck.

@Ellen- There's nothing quite like snippets of concise wisdom to help us push through when we need it most.

@Helena- Glad you discovered a "new" quote to add to your collection. There is such hope in the word "new," isn't there?

@Susan- Thank you for offering up Stone's quote. I've never read that one and will add it not just to my collection, but to my daily whiteboard. My current quote is "Now is better," said by Stefan Saymeister, but I'm going to make the switch to the one you offered today.

“Asking for help does not mean that we are weak or incompetent. It usually indicates an advanced level of honesty and intelligence.” - Anne Wilson Schaef

Love all of these, especially the last one! Here is one of my favorites: "A made-up mind is a powerful thing." - Joyce Meyer

“Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.”

Emily Kimbrough

This is my favorite except I say it differently. "I hate doing dishes (insert any chore here), so I always have to call someone and talk on the phone while I am doing it!"

Not quite so eloquent but sort of the same point right? :)

August 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAutumn Leopold

Wonderful additions to the collection! Thank you for sharing them with us.

@Janet- I SO needed to hear that one! It places the needing and asking in a much more positive light.

@Seana- Wise words. And so true. We can torture ourselves during the indecision phase. But making a choice energizes and motivates us to move forward.

@Autumn- You bring up the great point that with help, brings good company and support… much needed elements.
