On Wednesday mornings, during my AM break, my husband Matthew and our neighbor Tom and I walk to a diner for breakfast. To get to our destination we need to cross a heavily trafficked road. I don’t need much in the way of assistance usually, but crossing busy intersections can be difficult with my low vision. Both Matthew and Tom help guide me across the street. Knowing they will help me makes the walk much more pleasant. It beats playing a game of Frogger with my life, just to a get breakfast at a diner.

If you want to walk to breakfast with friends and can get assistance to cross the street, accept and say thank you. If you have a paper you’re trying to publish and a colleague agrees to read over it, crept and say thank you! This is support. Support is a great thing. Support shows up when you are living and reaching for your desires.
I did some research on successful people who received support to get to where they are. What I found out and realized was that all successful people, somewhere in their life, received the help necessary to achieve their goals. Everybody! Grants, promotions, advice, encouragement. All kinds of things. Receive it graciously.
