"No woman is an island," applies when it comes to setting goals. Even the most strong and independent woman can benefit from help along the way on her journey. Having a person or a tribe to lean on can make the tough journey seem so much easier. Let me share some of the reasons why a support system can be so valuable to your success. Then you can decide just what type of help you may need.
Having even one person to cheer you along can make a world of difference. When you're feeling down, those words of encouragement are both motivational and encouraging. Having someone say they believe in you is a powerful thing, especially when your belief in yourself is diminishing. Connection and support are basic human needs, particularly during times of change or struggle.
Support and encouragement are critical to achieving your goals. Without support, your successes can be really lonely. Sharing both your achievements and your challenges with someone gives you some encouragement that makes it easier to move onto the next hurdle or goal.
Sometimes a support system can be a source of information you need to help you reach your destination. Seek out experts, coaches, knowledgeable friends or others who can answer the tough questions for you and provide you with the resources you need to complete your task. Even if it's possible for you to find the answers on your own, getting help from those who know can make more sense and greatly improve your chances of success.
I’ve mentioned this before. It's important, so let's let me say it once more. Having a support system can help to motivate you. They can also provide you with the accountability you need to succeed. Asking a close friend, mentor or even a professional coach to serve as your accountability partner can increase your odds of accomplishing your goal because it forces you to check in and to be aware of your progress.
Finally, a support system provides you with much-needed compassion. These people give you a safe place when you're feeling discouraged. They'll listen with empathy when you struggle. You can lean on them and know they won't judge you. Experiencing compassion from others when you're struggling lets you know you're not alone and takes a bit of the burden off your shoulders. This is what your Venus Warriors tribe is all about!
Now do you see why it's so important to find your tribe when you're working toward a goal? Your support system can make that space between what's possible and impossible seem much smaller. There's no need to go it alone.
