Do you try to go it alone? Sometime there are things even too big for you!

Real Estate Agent with Realty Pro Oregon, LLC 200311024

Do you try to go it alone? Sometime there are things even too big for you! That is why I think it is important to admit when you need help and reach out for it. Recently I took a trip to the coast with my family and while there I saw the biggest kite I had ever seen.

The biggest kite I have ever seen (Seaside, Oregon)

But, that kite couldn’t fly on its own just under wind power and the person who brought the kite couldn’t get it up on his own either, both needed help and both understood this and when they both got the help they needed they had liftoff!

Leader kite

You see, this kite needed help from two leader kits and the kite flyer needed help from a team. This team would get lines untangled, make sure the leader kites lines didn’t get crossed with each other or the main kite. Now, this wasn’t easy, but an hour later, they had this massive kite in the air!

Know when to ask for help

The biggest kite I've ever seen takes flight

I hope you know when you need help and I when that time comes, I hope you are also smart enough to ask for it. Because sometimes, you just can’t do it alone and others will always be there to help, if you just ask!

Todd, Sometimes, I realize that I need to ask for help to get things do too. We all at some time or another need the help of others to accomplish our tasks and goals.

Hi Todd.  Those are amazing kites.  It is so cool that they got the blue one airborne.

Thanks for the pictures. I have never seen such large kites. We have an Indian holiday when they fly kites. I remember when we were kids my brothers used to love to fly kites.

First off... those kites are massive!  As for the post, you are absolutely right. A person should not be afraid to ask for help. There is no shame is someone helping you at all.
