“We are, none of us, all alone in this world.  Your brothers are here, too.”
–Albert Schweitzer
You are not alone! As you continue to strive for success, you will need the help of others. Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for help! None of us succeeds independently. There are many people who are eager to help you. Reach out to your mentors and advisors. Reach out to your role models. Reach out to your encourages and supporters. Don’t fall into the trap of the Lone Ranger Syndrome. The Lone Ranger was a fun TV show, but it’s not a good way to approach your goals! Trying to accomplish your goals by yourself is a major mistake, causing unnecessary frustration, disappointment, and worst of all, the temptation to quit and give up. Going it alone can cost you precious time and money, and it can sabotage even the best of ideas. Create your support system. The people around you by default are not necessarily the ones intended to help you accomplish your goals. Carefully consider your plans and then design the ideal support system you need to succeed! One word of encouragement may be just what you need to maintain your endurance. One concept from your coach can solidify your strategy, opening the floodgates to new business opportunities. One correction from your trusted advisor may save you from making a major mistake. One hug from a faithful friend may give you the strength to sustain your journey. To succeed, build a strong support system! You are not alone!
