The Power of Support: how to Access Your Inner Genius
We all have an Inner Genius. It is that part of us that knows what we are meant to do in this world. It is the voice inside our head that whispers, "You can do this." You are in your Genius Zone when you are doing a task, and all of a sudden time has flown by and you look at what you’ve created and are wowed by your staggering achievement.
Unfortunately, far too often we allow self-doubt, fear, and insecurity to silence our Inner Genius. We tell ourselves that we're not good enough, smart enough, not a good enough communicator, not influential enough, or simply not talented enough to achieve our dreams.
But what if I told you that you could access your Inner Genius simply by asking for help?
The Power of Support
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of strength. It takes courage to admit that we don't have all the answers and that we need assistance in order to reach our full potential. When we ask for help, we are opening ourselves up to the power of support.
Support can come in many forms: financial support, emotional support, spiritual support, etc. But no matter what form it takes, support always has the same effect: it allows us to tap into our Inner Genius. When we feel supported, we feel confident and capable. We believe in ourselves and our ability to achieve anything we set our minds to.
The Benefits Of Having A Support System In Place To Help You Achieve Your Goals
When you are considering a new goal it most likely includes learning new things. You might have all the motivation in the world to reach your goal. The other side of high-performance learning is surrounding yourself with support before, during, and after the learning process.
Connecting yourself with supportive people has been shown to lead to increased success rates in every area of life. From personal relationships to careers to health and well-being, being supported by others has a significant impact on achieving goals.
Eight benefits of having a supportive network at a time when you are learning include:
