I have been down some paths in my life that I thought were right, at the time. One of those things was always being supportive and helping others with their dreams. While we want to be caring and supportive and help others, what we don't want to do is set our goals and our dreams aside just to help them. Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself...what do YOU want out of life?
If you only help others you could start to lose a sense of yourself along the way and that is something that will set you back. You need personal development and personal fulfillment in order to thrive.
Here is my advice to you:
1. Chase your dreams! When you fulfill your heart by going after your dreams then you can truly help others without hesitation. When you always help others and not yourself it will wear you down. You can even start to have resentment towards others or maybe just get tired of helping people all together. In order to be the best YOU that you can be, make sure you are fulfilling your needs within also.
2. Do you want to look back at the last 10 years and realize that you haven't gotten anywhere? I don't want that for you. Remember it isn't selfish to want to advance your knowledge, better your life and thrive! You just need to do it in a humble manner. The lesson though is to not put yourself on the back burner on simmer because eventually there won't be anything left in the pan to give.
3. If the big goals scare you, start with small ones. Is your dream to own your own business but scares you to even think about going after it? Start with baby steps. Start a side gig that works its way to bigger and bigger goals. If you are in sales then say hey I want to sell $1,000 a month and this is how. Totally doable. If you set a goal of wanting to sell $10,000 a month in the first month and no one even knows about your business yet then maybe you are setting yourself up for failure.
Start small, set goals, accomplish the goals, set bigger goals and so on but always, always, always make sure that you are doing whatever it is that you are doing, for you as well. Do not make all of these goals and accomplish them for other people until you have filled your cup first.
The cup can overflow with happiness and you can thrive but not if you are dying inside and neglecting yourself along the way.
