Church in the Marketplace

We often say “bless you” or we sign off a card or email with “blessings”.  
Jesus, in his famous ‘Sermon on the Mount’, tells us eight ways to be blessed, to be happy. 
The first Beatitude  - "Blessed are those who recognise, that they are spiritually helpless"  (God’s Word Translation - Matthew 5:3).  I imagine that helplessness to be an admission that we’re powerless, that we need help, that we can't control and manage everything in our lives but we need God's help; then we will be blessed. 
How do we develop that kind of attitude – humbly admit we need help, humbly ask God for help and humbly accept help from others.
