When you go on a big adventure, it may be a very long and windy journey that may not always be fun, and you know the destination is worth the pain and the joy, the key to success is the support team you surround yourself with
Justine Garner’s ‘Its who you know – How a Network of 12 key people can Fast-Track your Success’ is a great resource in helping you identify your team
You will find a diverse group of people will join you on the journey. There will be the hands-on people, the people with big hearts who share you vision and put their hands up to sail the boat with you. There will be equally important people who get on and off the boat depending on how much support you need at that time and their life journey commitments. There will be the people who cheer you from the shore.
Then there are the people who see you a free ride to their destination. When you wake up to this fact, there will be the “good riddance” brigade.
Then there will be the one’s that shock you. You feel hurt, betrayed even and you spend far too much time ruminating on how and why it all went wrong. Its easy to lump these people into the Machiavellian basket but more often than not they don’t see how much they have hurt you.Its important to wish them well and raise a glass of champagne to the loyal and highly valued crew that gently remind you.
Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination
and if there is any one who thinks this post is “pot kettle black” I am truly sorry if I hurt you
May we all have the strength
