23-15 Just Ask

Download and color this week’s
Mandala of the Week

This week’s MotW is inspired by Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”, namely Principles #17 and #18: Ask, Ask, Ask and Reject Rejection respectively. These two principles felt like they could easily go together. Canfield states: “Why are people so afraid to ask? They are afraid of many things such as looking needy, looking foolish, and looking stupid. But mostly they’re afraid of experiencing rejection. … The sad thing is that they’re actually rejecting themselves in advance. They’re saying not to themselves before anyone else even has a chance to.”

Over the next seven days, I’ll be delving deeper into these principles via multiple colorings of this mandala and posting them on the Mandalas of the Day. My plan this week is to consciously ask for help while working through my fear of rejection.

So how about you? Do you struggle with asking for help? Do you fear rejection? What’s the worst that could happen by asking?

“Part of being successful
is about asking questions
and listening to the answers.”

An Invitation

I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, week, month, year). If you’re interested in a more self-exploration approach to coloring, check out my “Coloring Mandalas as Meditation”.
