A support network is meant to help you with bouncing ideas, seeing your true value, encouraging you in difficult times. The moment I was suggested to find people that did what I wanted to do, to ask them questions and to look for accountability in them, things really started shifting in the way I approached big projects.
There is an idea floating in our society which says something along the lines of “I need to sort out everything on my own”. Independence and strength is highly promoted and encouraged. But when you want to work on something which is close to your heart, the mind will do things to try and sabotage your progress.
The antidote to procrastination and following through with your projects is communication. Sharing with others your dreams, ideas and visions will help you stay in touch with that which resonates with you.
Don’t think you have to do it alone.
Grab a piece of paper and write down everything you need support with. Letting go of the idea that you need to do everything on your own might be the most difficult thing you will ever do but at the same time it will be the most powerful one as well.
Find a community, guides and people to hire to do the things that you don’t want/can do.
But most importantly, make sure you have a strong support network surrounding you. This cannot be missed in your toolkit if you want to change lifelong patterns and bring about change in your life.
We often hear that we are the result of the 5 people we spend most of our time with. And you know why, right?
Spending time with others means you
- Exchange ideas and views on life
- Share common belief systems
- Receive advice from other people’s lived experiences
- Have a common lifestyle and ways of spending your time
As you can see there are plenty of things that you exchange when connecting with others. Be it that you are working on a new project or you want to change your life for the better, you will have to be careful and mindful in choosing the people you spend most of your time with.
We need to have people who will encourage and support us in our new projects. Having people that discourage us or put our ideas down, will make our work more difficult.
Take a step back and review your relationships. Who do you need to bring into your network support? What type of help do you need? Get in touch if you want to have accountability and support with your new vision. Nobody can hold you back but you and your decisions.
