Achievements and successes are never attained without hard work and commitment, dedication and sacrifice, long hours and many attempts.
It can be difficult at times and the urge to give up will nudge at you more often then you’d like.
It is these times when we can feel lonely and when our struggles seem to be ours and ours alone.
And during these times having the support, assistance and unbiased words of encouragement can make the world of a difference.
Those that can support you do not need to understand what you are doing or even the reasons why, they just understand that what you are doing is important to you therefore it is important they support that.
They are proud of the dedication you have, the commitment you give and offer their support in the best way they can.
If you have been working non-stop they’ll offer you a soothing cup of whatever it is that gets you through.
Before any meetings or events they’ll be the first ones to wish you ‘Good Luck’, and when things go well they’ll be first congratulating you.
More importantly when things are going wrong (which they do more often then going right) they will encourage you not to give up, they will lend you an ear and shoulder for support and then provide you with the assurance that you have got this!
Although our accomplishments are our own, the journey to get their is never without the love and support of others, the encouragement and optimism of those that believe in us.
And it is these supporters that bear the green flags of encouragement that can make all the difference in succeeding or failing in our endeavours.
Anything in life worth having is worth working for, and those assisting in achieving that are worth more than all the treasures the world has to offer.
Reflect. Love. Heal.
