Push You. Push You. Push You.
It cannot be said enough. The importance in surrounding yourself with people who constantly push you, rather than praising you is key to your personal and professional growth. It’s great for people to tell you that your work is “amazing” and “everything will be fine,” but what does that do to help you build the confidence you need to take the risks that are necessary for success.
This is particularly key for women who often tend to be naturally more supportive than competitive. It’s great to be supportive, but sometimes it’s more important to challenge one another. Sometimes it’s important to tell your friend who has all the talent in the world, but is wasting it because of fear and/or “stability” that she needs to stop making excuses and go for her dreams.
Surround yourself with people that will tell you the truth, in order to help you grow and ultimately push you toward your realistic goals and dreams. Watch how your life changes.
