Learn to do it yourself

I see it happen quite a bit, sometimes it is appropriate, but other times it is not. So, what am I referring to? Having someone do something for you so you don't have to do it.

For some things, which require a special skill you haven't developed yet, that needs to be done right away, yeah, it is good to have someone do that for you.

And there are other examples I'm sure you can think of where it is necessary and preferred to have someone do it for you, but there are things people may want others to do for them, that they should do themselves. In fact, there are things no one can do for you like live your life.

When it comes to self mastery, no one can do it for you. Yes, there are people who can teach you how to become masterful at expressing life, but in order to graduate into the Mastery of your life, you need to do it, no one can do it for you.

So, the next time you are considering having someone else "do it for you" pause a moment and consider whether this is something I need to do myself, even if it is something I really don't like to do. Sometimes, those things are important steps along the path of life which propel us forward in our self mastery, so to hand them off to someone else, is counter productive.

If we depend on others for our accomplishments, they aren't our accomplishments, they are someone else's accomplishments.

It is better to teach someone how to do something so they can do it themselves, than to just do it for them. Yeah, just doing it for them takes less time and may be easier, but then they are dependent upon you, so if/when you are no longer there, they are screwed.

Each of us has an innate skill and or ability which comes naturally to us. To be of service to others, we may teach others how to do that, if or when asked to do so.

We are more of service to others when we enable others to do it for themselves.

(I believe this is the approach the blue avians have taken. They provide guidance and encouragement, but they aren't going to do it for us.)
