It can be VERY hard to see the road ahead – especially when we are on the growing edge of our personal growth journey. By its very nature personal growth takes us out into uncertainty and into the unknown – and so we can sometimes feel like we are in a forest with no path or map.
And that’s how it should be. We are each here to carve our own unique path – to be trailblazers of Love. And at the same time, we cannot do it alone. No one can do it alone. We aren’t meant to exist in a bubble. And so we also need help.
There’s an old saying that states, “If you want to know the road ahead ask those who are coming back.” You see, as we are growing, if we don’t have the experience of ever reaching the goal or creating the outcome that we want to create – it can seem impossible at times. Which is why surrounding ourselves with people who have been there before is SO vital.
I am beyond lucky to have an amazing group of friends, advisors, mentors, therapists and experts to be able to call when I have a question. And in doing so, I can rely on their expertise when it comes to their area of focus. So instead of doing all the research or taking time to only grow by trial and error, I can turn what is sometimes years or decades of experience for someone else into hours or even minutes of advice for me. It’s awesome.
And because I am blessed to have this amazing peer group, I am able to make quicker moves and grow in a more direct and thought out way. I have consciously surrounded myself with people who know the road ahead because I got sick and tired of learning only by trial and error. It’s a powerful thing to have a group of people that you can trust to help you wade through the forest of the unknown.
I’ve never been *super* fit and right now I’m BEYOND grateful to be working with a trainer who lives in the body I want to create for myself. Because he knows the road ahead, he is giving me all the strategies I need to get to the far off city of “Six-pak-ville”. I don’t know what it feels like to be that fit, but he does. And I trust in his plan fully to help me get there.
You are the hero of your own life and every hero has friends and allies who go on the journey with them. Heroic deeds are a team effort. Luke Skywalker would be dead without R2D2.
So, who do you have in your life that can help you see the road ahead? Be it a relationship, a friendship, a business, fitness or other outcome? Let me know! TDL comes alive in the comment section below, so feel free to leave a comment and let’s discuss!
Here’s to having an amazing peer group and buddies on our hero’s journey!
