Research states, (that always sounds so official and I know I should dig up the actual research ... trust me on it) that our resilient path is helped when we have the support of others who believe in us. If we hear that you can do it, i believe in you, i'm here for you
it helps so much. I am so grateful for those who have cheered me on - parents, husband- always. My children, friends, colleagues, an encouraging comment on my blog, a supportive email, so many mentors. Yes, ultimately we must believe in ourselves, but the power of others believing in us gives us wings to fly or run.
When I mentioned that I wanted to start running, my friend Shannon was willing to learn about being my guide runner. We have been running each week, and I look forward to our time together. She has encouraged me along and believes that I can complete this run with her on Saturday!
What have you done because someone believed in you?
