Encourage, lift, and strengthen one another. For the positive energy spread to one will be felt by us all. For we are connected, one and all.
There are many who have faith in and believe in you. Yet, just like the doubters, they are waiting for you to succeed as a sign that they, too, can achieve their goals.
In 1954, Roger Banister accomplished the impossible: He broke through the perceived 4-minute mile barrier and finished in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. That small accomplishment of .6 seconds was all others needed. They began to believe in themselves and their ability to run faster. A sub-4-minute mile is now commonplace with over 1,400 runners having broken the barrier. It all started with one man who believed in himself and his ability to surpass limitations.
It truly is an act of love to be an example of success. Just like the old saying goes, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears,” you can be the teacher for someone else who wants to succeed.
Finding a great mentor is crucial in reaching your goals. A mentor is a guiding light to follow when the path isn’t always clear. Your mentor should have already walked the path that you’re on, and they can see the solutions to barriers that you might not be able to see.
As you gain success, others will begin to reach out to you and need you to mentor them, and the cycle continues. It’s important that you never stop challenging yourself and growing because those who you mentor can only progress as far as their leader.
