F is for Family/Friends

Close friends and family are one of the secret weapons of success. They can listen and help shape your dream. They can support you on your journey. And most importantly friends and family are there to celebrate the milestones along the way.

Share your hopes and your dreams with those closest to you. Describe what success looks like to you and enlist their help and input in crafting a plan. You cannot achieve any meaningful success without help. A strong support system is part of that help. When times get tough, and they will, you need people close to you that can offer words of encouragement or a swift kick in the rear (which ever is more appropriate).

Just as it is important to for you to recognize and celebrate specific points along the path, it is equally important to share the celebrations with those closest who have helped shape your journey. Family and friends enrich our lives; they add love, happiness and humor. Family and friends have helped us to become who we are and will continue to shape who we are going to become in the future.

Enlist their help and include them in all your victories. You must admit, celebrating alone is really not much of a celebration. As the saying goes: the more the merrier.
