Having a positive support system that you can rely on in good and bad times is a necessity in the pursuit of any goal. Sometimes we have dreams that many of the people in our lives just don’t understand. They think we’re crazy or unrealistic for believing we can make our desires a reality.
This is why a positive support system is so important in the pursuit of our goals. We need people by our side who may not understand why our goals are important to us, but the simple fact that they do mean something to us is enough. They are there to help us celebrate our successes, be there when we hit rough patches and gives us a proper kick in the butt when we wallow in self-pity for a bit too long!
Our dream team of supporters sometimes doesn’t include family or lifelong friends. Sometimes it’s people you just met, or even connected with online. It doesn’t matter how you found them or what brought you together. The important thing is that they truly care about your success and are there to support you whenever you need it.
The key to effective support systems is reciprocity. It can’t be about us all the time. We need to be willing to be there for those who support us as much as they are there for us. There’s nothing more fulfilling than knowing that you can help others in the pursuit of their goals as much as they are there for you in the pursuit of your own.
We don’t have to pursue our goals on our own. In fact, trying to do it as a solo act is often what discourages us from seeing them through to completion. Having a support system is often the only thing that keeps us going. When we have nothing left within us to encourage us to persist, our support system can give us the energy we need. If you don’t have the support system you need right now, seek them out. Stop with the stubbornness that results in you being on your “all I got is me” mode, that’s so 2015. It’s okay to reach out and to bond while you build. I bet you’ll be happy you did!
So are you ready to build new relationships and thrive? Let’s get it!!!
Now signing off with the reminder: Don’t wait for the world to recognize your greatness, live it and let the world catch up to you.
