So you need to do everything possible to help support you in achieving your goals, and a having a support network can be one of the best motivators I know.
There are lots of things to do to help build your support networks. Here are a few ideas:
Share with friends and family
One of the easiest things is to do is tell your friends and family about your goals. They only want to see you succeed and can offer some great tips and suggestions for helping you move forward. You will find they will often ask how you are getting on - imagine that feeling of telling them your what you have achieved. It might even inspire them to take action
Another way is creating a personal journal. By reflecting on both your achievements and the obstacles you have faced, this is a great way to help you learn what works and what doesn’t work. A great way of being able to look back and see how far you have come.
Or you can just tell the whole world, social media makes things so much easier. Facebook updates, blogging, twitter – you name it. No this is not for everyone, but it’s a great way of motivating yourself with a huge support network following you.
