There are no 'self-made' millionaires. There are no 'self-made' anything. We all get support from others. You're reading this thanks to the fact that we were all helped by Tim Berners-Lee when he gave us the web, for instance. However, day to day, you need a support system that cheers you on and gives you hope. Maybe you don't have that. There are times for most of us when we really need a support system but we just don't have one. So, what should you do if you have nobody consistently supporting your dreams and struggles?
The first thing to do is to think of how to build a support system. If your family aren't on board with what you're doing, can you find a way to get them more engaged or is it best to keep business and family separate for you? If the latter, look for meetups in your area where you can spend time with others on the same journey as you. If you're in home or small business, you might want to go to networking events. If you're creative, open mic nights and poetry readings may be more your thing. Make plans to attend, so you have support in future.
Back to the present. You still need a support system. While you wait for the next meetup, here are some things you can do to be your own support system:
Inspirational speakers in the area of your passion are a great support system. Listening to people speak passionately about what you love to do can be a great emotional support. I recommend getting Audible for this. You can even get a free audiobook and 30-day free trial to get you started.
Having a strong plan can give you a sense of drive that pulls you towards your vision. You can come up with a plan on your own, but it is far more effective to hire a coach who will help you implement an accountability system, and support you as you move towards your dreams. Here's how I can do that (link opens in new window).
Going for a walk in nature can help you reconnect with your purpose. You have a highly advanced intellect. You are also just an animal. Be a good animal and go for a walk in the fields.
Connecting with the Infinite Mind is the ultimate in support. If you're an atheist, just double up on the last point. Go out in nature at night and marvel at the stars and planets. If you're spiritually minded, get hooked up to the Infinite. Tune in to unlimited potentiality. Tune out the naysayers and haters. Journal the results of your meditations. Meditating on the idea that you are always supported is a good place to start.
