Positively Uncomfortable Day 21: Never Shy Away Facts

You Can Always Find Meaning Through Supporting Someone On Their Journey!

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Today we dive into shifting the mindset to give yourself a green light for a support message you are contemplating sending for someone on your journey giving themselves a chance to fail.

The reality is that cheering someone on is one of the smallest, kindest, fulfilling acts that we need to do more often. We always doubt our mind and find ways to justify not reaching out to someone on their journey, but it truly is game changing. I can speak first hand on my journey on all the people who have reached out to me and supported me through a Instagram message, FB message, or text and how it has lifted me up and the lowest times. When you enter the battlefield with the potential to fail, there are so many ups and downs and your support messages are essential to help others embrace the journey.

Facts-> Believing in Others Makes it Easier for People To Shine

I believe that it is the small things that we do for people that become the big things. This is because people will always remember how you made them feel by your actions.

I was inspired by a story today from my Chief Positivity Officer, who shared this story with me today.

“ At today’s TED Talk event, I took my task of serving as a support person to heart. My role was to provide inspiration and comfort to a life coach to keep her from self destructing from the fear of public speaking. We talked about my why and this very image gave her the fuel she needed to inspire the room and she faced her fear and did better than nailing it, she captured the hearts and minds of the entire auditorium. My small act of relatedness was the small thing that became her big thing. I believed in supporting her why and the rest was all up to her to shine.”

I have mentioned this concept a couple times across my blog, but what stands out to me is the fulfillment felt by helping someone else shine. Once I started finding myself, I then realized that power to positively influence those who were stepping into the spotlight around me and how fulfilling it was. Not only does this allow you to have more fulfillment, learn more about yourself, and enjoy the times when you were in the same shoes, but also will make you to want to grow yourself with that person and build a relationship.

Action Step

Never be shy to challenge yourself and put your mind and body to the test! You will be accompanied by people cheering you on to get to the finish line. And when you do your best and give it your all, you will be amazed by how good you feel and how much you can achieve when you go all in.

Never be shy to reach out to your friends or anyone on your journey to support them for going after something out of their comfort zone. The support is what makes them believe in themselves go after their dreams rather than doubting themselves from taking that first step toward reaching their full potential.

Each of us has a purpose and whether we are on the sidelines cheering someone on or stepping into the battlefield by giving us a chance to fail. We each have a role in this journey of life we are embarking on together !
