Funny, but not funny post. One of the most frustrating people I meet: ASKHOLES.
“Someone who continually asks for advice and does nothing with it”
If you didn’t know this about me already:
I LOVE helping you. I really do.
I know I’m a wired encourager and my purpose is to help others achieve their higher potential. It’s embedded deep in my dna to support anyone trying to make a positive difference on a personal, family, community or global level. I’ll always be on your side, rooting for you to win! However…
…I can only encourage, challenge and cheer you on so much.
I discovered askholes a long time ago, and unfortunately, they still live among us. These people have to be willing to accept advice, stop asking more questions, stop looking for more motivation, stop reading more quotes, stop making excuses and actually IMPLEMENT the steps, strategies, feedback and advice given.
It drives me nuts when someone repeatedly asks what I think they should do, then they go do something else. Why did you waste my time? More importantly, why did you waste yours?
Round And Round They Go
It’s like being on a hamster wheel.
Those cute pets* will run and run and run, thinking they’re getting ahead. In reality, even though the wheel goes round and round they’re actually in the same physical place. (*Hairy rodents? Mice with fur?)
Sometimes, askholes don’t even realize their destructive habit. They have to get off the hamster wheel of seeking advice with little intention of implementing, and start DOING.
If you know you’re struggling with this, help is out there. Know that I love you, but I refuse to support your habit! And if you’re not, know that it’s NOT YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to do the work for the askholes around you.
Share this with all the askholes in your life and let’s all grow together,
