Change your life: Success teams

29 September, 2014

Whatever you want to achieve in your life – either on a personal or professional level – there’s nothing like having a positive support team behind you, encouraging you at every turn; keeping you on track and picking you up and dusting you off again when you stumble along the way.

Equally, if there are people in your life who are consistently eating away at your self-confidence, it can have the opposite effect and tip the scales towards your no longer believing that you can achieve the goals you have set yourself.

You’d be surprised how negative people come out of the wood-work when you announce that you are actively seeking to make positive changes in your life – and will do all they can to hold you back.

“Invent your world. Surround yourself with people, colour, sounds and work that nourish you” — Sark

Think about the people in your life. Do they support you 100% and provide constructive advice and feedback? Will they cheer you on to win? Will they celebrate your successes and encourage you when you encounter setbacks?

Who will you choose to have on your own personal Success Team?

Who do you know who could help YOU to achieve your goals? Why not start your own Success Team today with a handful of supportive friends or colleagues.
