I recently had a conversation with someone about triathlon who mentioned that he loved the cheering squad and mentioned how it isn’t something we usually get in our lives.
It’s true that this is something that makes races so great.
But maybe we should also seek out people – a close groups of friends – who act as our cheering squads in life. Why not? I don’t mean the people who are always positive all the time; rather, honest people who give good feedback but also encourage you forward.
I am fortunate enough to have a small cheering squad. Most of these people are folks that I have met recently since I have allowed myself to be more intentional, more vulnerable, and worked on making the conscious effort to stay in touch with people I really would love to have in my life.
Do you have people on your life cheering squad? Is there someone you want to work on bringing in to that circle?
