There's a problem in our society.
We are raised to be independent.
We are taught to figure things out on our own and we're rewarded when we do so.
For some things, it's good. You want to be able to go to the bathroom and get dressed on your own.
For other things, it can be hurting us.
In schools we are taught not to look at other people's work as it can be considered "cheating". Especially on a test.
But life is not a test.
(And if you look at it that way, how's that working out for you? Are you having fun?)
As adults we find it difficult to ask for help or support because we "should" know how to do it. No matter what "it" is.
The most successful people I know are always learning and growing. In fact, my new business partner who is now 57 years old said the following to my brother and I yesterday:
"You think you're learning from me but I'm learning way more from you."
I've also come to realize that people love to help. If they have a skill, they want to share it with the world. Especially with people who are genuinely interested.
When you have the right support and help you will be able to build a solid foundation with proper technique, grow stronger, move faster and have more fun.
And it never stops...
