When starting to make positive changes in your life never ignore the importance of those around you. Undoubtedly you have friends and family for whom you have huge respect for and so why not allow them to be a part of these changes. If you believe them to be of strong mind and sensible views then why can’t they help you turn your life around? Plus, it’s pretty lonely if you try to do it all on your own, not to mention unrealistic. If you have never managed to achieve the life that you desire so far why are you suddenly wise enough to do it alone? Sometimes a shoulder to lean on and an open ear to listen shouldn’t be sniffed at.
Turn to those who know you best…who can be honest with you about your weak points and your failings and who never feel the need to sugar coat your life for you. But they are also the ones who understand your capabilities. They are the people who truly believe in you and know that you have the power and strength inside you to shoot for the stars. These are the people who will push you when you’re at the bottom, and be happy to celebrate with you when you are at the top. Ask for advice, and if you believe in them, take it. It’s never weak to need others but rather arrogant to think you can make it there alone
Never underestimate the power of your army.
