Among the aspects of Support that we discussed this week in Results 101:
* Results are directly proportional to the quality and quantity of support available.
* Supporting others appropriately generates energy for ourselves.
* Allowing and asking for support is not weakness: it is being responsible about managing your resources.
Next week, we will talk about Handling Difficulty – so today, in our last official day about Support, please be prepared to think about areas in your life where there has been (see, past tense!) a persistent problem where increased focus on support could be useful.
Thursday is our fourth day spent in discussing Support.
We’ve all heard the expression, “what goes around, comes around.”
Today’s question: How well are you supporting others – in both the personal and professional areas of your life?
During my first marathon, I had the experience of clapping and cheering for the runners who were ahead of me after they had made a U-turn far ahead. The race course brought them up the opposite side of the street where I was running.
I noticed that as I clapped and cheered for them, my energy level increased.
Have you noticed a similar situation where you create a win-win by offering support for others?
This week, our focus in Results 101 is Support and its direct relationship to the results that we experience in our lives.
In today’s Study Hall, I’ll ask you to think about a result that has not been happening – (see, it’s a limitation, so always past tense!) – and that you desire to improve. This could easily be among the goals of your Inventory, a part of your Vision, something in the Huttstables(TM) and / or among the items on your Quantification Sheet.
Now, please think about what level of support would virtually guarantee that result. Be creative and imaginative. Think about what resources would be needed to accomplish the result. This brainstorming will improve your understanding of what it means to increase the odds of creating what you wish.
If you want to make money in the stock market, you might brainstorm that you need a crystal ball. Since that’s an unlikely form of support, what are the next best things to having an accurate crystal ball? How closely can you come to having them?
There is a direct relationship between support and intended results.
This week’s theme of support continues today with a discussion of the mixed messages that our culture sends about support. There has been general confusion about the difference between help and support. Everyone benefits by understanding the distinction.
Report, read your agreements, and participate in a discussion about support.
Welcome to the First Day of Fall – a perfect time to think about key results that you’d like to have accomplished by the end of the year.
This week’s results curriculum topic is Support — what it is, how to manage it, and its primary role in manifesting your intentions.
Our quote from last Friday bears repeating today:
Anything is possible with the right amount of the right kind of support.
