There is no way that I could embark on a learning journey on my own. Every person I meet has the potential to teach me something new everyday. What I learn from them depends on my attitude, whether I hear the lesson, and whether I choose to put the lesson into practice.
I am surprised how much I am becoming more aware of myself as I start to learn about blogging. However, the biggest lesson I am re-learning is that I need help, and to humble myself to receive that help. I am linking with other bloggers who are willing to share the mistakes they made when they started out, so that I can, hopefully, not repeat them!
I learned long ago that I can do very little on my own. I am not an island. I need others around me who know me, and are of like mind, who can:
- Encourage me
- Give me feedback
- Help me formulate the next step forward
- Motivate me
- Challenge me
- Take an interest in what I am doing
I would urge you to tell others, your friends and family, those you trust and have a relationship with, about your new ventures or personal growth that you are experiencing. Share with them. Ask them what you would like them to do for you to keep you on this path.
Discussion Point: How have you built up that essential network of people who make sure that you don’t go it alone, who support you and encourage you? Let me know. Looking forward to reading your comments.
Until tomorrow, Kate
