COMMUNITIES HAVE SPRUNG TO THE TOP of my mind this week.
Each of us has communities that we participate in and contribute to. Social groups. Family. Work. Spiritual support. And other friendships.
This is much more important than we usually recognize.
LET’S FACE IT: You spend most of your career doing what others want.
You’ve probably felt hemmed in by obligations, the need to support your family’s lifestyle, and a desire to amass retirement savings.
But now what?
I’ve been working with people who now want to take their considerable expertise and build a new consulting business, mentor in the community, or be on a non-profit board.
THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS has been an intense time for me. I’ve been in the process of launching the largest program I’ve every done, and I’m now seeing the results of that focus and energy.
I’m incredibly grateful for the wide range of supporters and partners who have helped me on this journey. Honestly, I never would have attempted this without them.
IHAD A CHANCE this week to speak with three people who, each in their own way, were influential in the creation of this blog. This has been an important spiritual journey for me, in addition to the more visible discussions we’ve had.
This helped me realize how important is is to acknowledge where your foundation is.
For most people I speak with, this is almost entirely about the people in their lives. Sure, I got into a great career and awesome company right out of college, which somehow set me up to be where I am today. But I’m not going to fall into the delusion of thinking I’m “self-made.”
I think the harder you work, the more you realize how dependent you are on supporters around you.
