“Without support environment always wins“
Whatever you’re doing will be harder than it needs to be when you don’t have adequate support.
Check in with yourself frequently to be sure you have sufficient support in place for where you’re wanting to go in your life and business.
Where have you stretched yourself recently?
Several years ago, having not traveled for a considerably long time, I ventured overseas alone. My friends and family were concerned at me travelling solo. Even more so when they realized I didn’t even know anyone at my destination.
It was a brave bold move on my part. Coming from a small community in a small country at the end of the earth.
I knew I was a courageous woman. I knew I could do it.
What kept me going was that I knew where I was going.
I was heading to an event where I’d meet in person some people I’d connected with online.
I felt confident there was nothing to worry about.
Until … having spent several hours queueing and progressing at a snail’s pace thru customs, I missed my connecting flight despite my having run thru the terminal from international arrivals to domestic departures.
Yep, I dipped into panic mode.
Suddenly I became very concerned that I wouldn’t make it. I’d miss the welcoming event.
I remember feeling a whole raft of emotions that ranged from despair to frustration to anger to exhaustion.
There was also an extreme feeling of missing out, FOMO was very real at that moment for me. I’d traveled so far, spent so much time and money only to miss out at the last connection. That’s how it seemed to me at the time anyways.
Looking back I realize I’d have felt less alone, less frustrated if there’d been someone I could have phoned to let them know what had happened. That would have reassured me that someone cared, that someone was watching out for my arrival and may have saved me a seat.
Fast forward a few months I shared the terminal wait and domestic flight with one of the people I’d met at that event. What a difference that support made. Knowing that someone was watching out for me; looking for me when I arrived in their country.
Without support environment always wins.
What that means is that when we stretch ourselves to do something that expands and grows who we are, those people who usually are our support system are not able to support us in the way we need. They don’t know how cos they haven’t stretched themselves in the way that we are.
My friends and family at home were way out of their depth supporting me on my first solo journey to the other side of the world. So much so, that I never told them about my missed connection until I was safely back home.
What’s your best next step?
Many of the women I speak with every day are in a quandary. They want to grow their business, fill their client roster, add an extra zero to their bottom line … and yet, they’re scare that will mean that have to work harder and longer, that they’ll burnout and have no time for them or their family.
I get it, I’ve felt those same dilemmas. I’ve felt confused about which step is my best next step to take.
