1 Quote. 1 Reflection. 1 Question.
“At some time in your life, you probably had someone believe in you when you didn't believe in yourself.”

Former Superbowl champion, Darrell Green once said, "I had a coach who in a different way encouraged me that I could be a running athlete….He was always encouraging me to participate, and I did, And so I think he helped me to identify the possibilities which I had never thought about.’
When talking to successful people you will find one thing in common: At one point, they all had someone in their corner that genuinely believed in them.
This is important in our 20s because we often doubt ourselves. We tell ourselves we aren't smart enough, fit, enough, rich enough, kind enough, or efficient enough.
Telling ourselves these phrases is natural because we needed this mindset to survive for thousands of years. So, having a supportive person in our life is important. It could be a teacher, friend, family member, coach, co-worker, or teammate. It doesn't matter who it is, it just matters that we have someone.
If you are unsure how to find someone, start by thinking about people that want the best for you. If we are truly on the right path there is someone in our corner that is rooting for us, we just have to find them.
On the flip side, there's probably someone in our life that we can be there for. We should reach out to that person this week because giving is always better than receiving.
How can you show better for the people in your life?
