I met one of my friends recently. I don’t see her as frequently as I would like. But, our times together are always super-rich and inspiring.
There’s a mutual understanding in this relationship that just can’t be explained… we both have this inner voice that screams: your life is meant to be bigger, brighter and better- period.
When we get together we share our unimaginable dreams but, most importantly we share WHAT we are doing to bring us closer to those dreams.
I might as well confess- both of us know that these dreams supersede all of our natural gifts and they definitely reach beyond our abilities. They almost seem ridiculous! But yet, we don’t let that stop us- simply put, we both know there is more. More for us to give, More for us to do. Simply More.
By the time our time together is over- both of us are absolutely invigorated! She is one of my accountability partners, my cheerleader and one of my closest confidants. Any hindrances, doubts or barrier I may have walked in the door with have completely disappeared by the time we’re done. Our time of sharing is priceless!
I am so grateful for this friendship. It’s such an encouragment for me. A safe place to be transparent about the challenges while also holding me accountable! I remember a quote that indicates that no one gets to any level of success by themselves. There are multitudes of people who have invested knowledge, opportunities, wisdom, skills, energy, insight, etc. into anyone who has reached a life goal.
Are you pursuing any big dreams?
Have you surrounded yourself with those who understand, support and encourage you? Having acquaintances, friends or accountability partners who are equally as motivated to acheive their goal is a huge key to maintaining your motivation mojo.
It is uber-important to have like-minded people you can walk with as you navigate this journey; even if their endeavor is nothing like yours, the common thread and understanding remains the same.
Take inventory. If you don’t have a great support and accountability system established- make strides to cultivate one.
Establishing this is crucial as you pursue your dreams and the inevitable challenges along the way.
The right network of people will inspire you, encourage you and challenge you- when needed. They will remind you that you are not alone.
They will prove to be your secret weapon just when you need motivation the most.
