When you have No Support

A lot of people find this as the reason why they can't do something with their life.

So the question is, what do you do when you really want to do something or you need to stop doing something, but you have no support? What is a person to do when no one seems to care about their dreams or problems? How do you react when it seems that you are really "going it alone"?

You really only have about two choices.

Choice one- blame the world for your failures and develop an angry frustrated attitude toward people and society. Then carry on as a loser and constantly point the finger when asked why you didn't overcome.

Choice two- Depend on YOURSELF! And choose to make things happen.

There is no one else in the world (besides God) who you can depend on more than yourself. You know yourself. You know what makes you click. You know what motivates you. You know what you want in life and you want to achieve your goals. You know what happiness is to you and what is missing to be happy. You also know your weaknesses and insecurities.

So who better to motivate you, other than yourself.

I am a person who likes to exercise. And when I go to the gym, I always see people there with other partners, helping to motivate them. I even know people who say they will not go to the gym unless someone else can go with them.

Now I am not against having support when you are working out. But if no one can or is willing to go with me, does that mean that I shouldn't go? Of course not! I have to go for me. It's my body that will benefit or suffer from the consequences of doing or not doing exercise. So I have to be self-motivated in that area.

The same applies to life. With or without a partner to cheer you own, you have to cheer yourself on. You have to push yourself like no one else can. Be your own Drill Sergeant and you will face the world with strength and grit that will be unbreakable.
