Do you remember the hit “Rescue Me?” Depending on how old you are, the tune was recorded by Fontella Bass, Madonna, or Daughtry. While the lyrics are different, the theme is the same. The subject of the song is in need of rescue, rescue by someone else.
While many of us are not looking for a someone to save us in the terms of the song, do you have other instances where you are looking for a rescue? I will give you a few examples. Are you looking for someone to take over your books and then tell you what to do with your business? Are you delegating some of your work and then not following up or keeping track of the work? Did you fall behind preparing for the next show and are scrambling for someone to get you of the jam?
It is fine to look for help or get feedback. It is not fine to give up your power by looking for a rescue. And, yes, this is what you are doing by not being fully knowledgeable about your business. Remember delegation is not the same as abdication.
You cannot completely step into your own power and accept the rewards you deserve from your life and business if you are looking for a rescue.
It really comes down to personal responsibility. You need to learn to be your own rescuer. Besides, rescues only really work in fairy tales!
