I find myself writing this post at a time where support is crucial, in the beginning. When you are starting out on a new career path or a project it can often be reassuring to know that others, especially those with nothing invested in it, support you. I find myself realizing that it is not just the belief in myself that pushes me everyday, its my collection of personal cheerleaders waving their invisible pom poms.
The climb up the success ladder can be lonely and its nice to know there is someone out there who knows you can make it to the top. When you start your journey up the ladder, you may start out alone or you may start out with some support, either way, eventually during your journey you will find your true personal cheerleader(s).
Sometimes they are family or friends, sometimes they are mentors, and sometimes they are just bystanders who think you have what it takes. Regardless of who your cheerleader may be, having one (or many) can make a world of a difference.
The feeling that someone other than yourself believes in you can often be the only push you really need to succeed. It no longer becomes about being the best or succeeding at one little thing, but now becomes about being even better than anyone thought you could be and always striving to achieve more than you originally set out to. Keeping everyone else on their toes is a great push to keep yourself going.
When it comes to success, take all the help you can get because encouragement is often the biggest help anyone can offer. I am blessed enough to have more cheer squads full of people with pom poms supporting and cheering me on then I can count, but I will never take any one of them for granted because they show me that my goals of success can’t be just a crazy idea if so many people believe in me.
Find your own personal cheerleader and cheer squad and you too will find your journey to success a lot easier than it looks.
