Nov 28, 2011 – Are you feeling unsupported? How are you gaining support for what you are trying to accomplish? How have you made your life and work easier through support systems and a support network? Have you allowed your values to guide you in identifying those who would share in the burden or challenges because they share your beliefs and convictions? You are never in it alone. There is always someone who will understand, empathize or be able to assist. You just need to be open to letting them in and letting them know.
Take an MM&I Moment to list anyone who could potentially help you in what you are trying to do, even in the smallest of ways. List your values and then list separately those people who share these same values. If there is a situation that is causing conflict or frustration, look to those people who share your values to help you think of options or offer solutions. If you are trying to achieve a particular feat, list how you can assist someone in their efforts towards their goals who can also help you in your endeavor. Then reach out to these people and let them know that you are also there for them as well.
