B2BBC: Day 3

Lean On Me

Welcome to Day 3 of the Boot Camp! On Day 1 I talked about setting goals. Yesterday was all about finding a mentor. Today I want to bring up another important part of the puzzle, support.

Staying focused on any one thing over a long period of time can be physically, mentally and emotionally draining. To keep those three elements charged and ready for the task at hand, there will be times that you need help. It does not mean that you are weak or unworthy. It just means that you are human.

As humans, we are social creatures by nature. We gather together and make communities wherever we go. It only makes sense to take advantage of that part of our nature. To quote from my post No Man (Or Woman) Is An Island:

But the fact that you have to do this for yourself does not mean that you have to do this by yourself. A strong support system is essential for anyone involved in a difficult venture and I am sure everyone reading these pages would agree that losing weight certainly qualifies.
So take advantage of your family, friends and online communities. Let them know what you're doing and ask them for support. More often than not, they will be more than happy to be there for you.

(There's still plenty of time left to enter my contest. But it won't last forever!)
