Trekking up a mountain alone is exhausting. By building a support system, we can share out resources and heavy loads. With others, we can offer and receive guidance, encouragement, and solutions. We can learn from others and mentor others. And finding support to achieve our goals doesn’t take away from our hard work and success and actually reaching the top of the mountain. Seeking support doesn’t make us weak, inadequate or cowardly. Others can bring perspective and positive energy that helps us push through. Finding support, whether through family, friends, school, work or online, could mean the difference between giving up and ploughing on, between plummeting and stumbling, between sprouting and shooting. We will go high on our own, but we can surround ourselves with people who will lift us even higher.
