When you decide to live the best life that you can live, to be all that you can be and to genuinely find your place, path and joy in life….you’re going to have to walk some of that path alone.
Some might even have to blaze their own path so to speak.
I’m a HUGE supporter of asking for help and leaning on a community to support and encourage you on your way to the life you desire. It’s necessary…but it’s also mega important to be able to stand on your own and follow your dreams no matter what any one else thinks.
We have to have a fire in the pit of our belly that can’t be stopped….even if we don’t have support. We have to be independent enough, strong enough and focused enough to go after what we want all by ourselves. Then we can be open to support, encouragement and yes…help.
I think that there is a magic sweet spot in between allowing someone to help us and being independent.
Both can be viewed as a negative and probably are if taken too far in either direction. So I think this Penguin Pointer goes hand and hand with yesterdays. Because finding that balance is pretty important to finding our way and when you master that sweet spot, you will be unstoppable.
