You… the entrepreneur! Yes… I’m talking to you! You are on your path! You are fulfilling your dreams! You are in control!
But what if you don’t have the right support around you? What if you could burst with excitement but you’re worried about telling someone incase they burst your bubble? Or they think you’re ‘bragging’? Or they’re secretly wishing that you’ll fail? Or they think you’re in dream land?
This may seem a little harsh but I’ve heard so many stories about people that are so excited and then for whatever reason they seem to lose their enthusiasm. I’ve even heard stories where people have given up on their dreams because someone has criticised their vision for so long that they simply stop believing in themselves.
When I first started my property journey I was told so many times… “You’ll never amount to anything” by the people I thought would support me. It was heartbreaking. However, I was so determined I wouldn’t give up. I had my ‘Big Why’ of my 2 beautiful daughters and I knew giving up wasn’t an option. This is why I am a true believer that having a ‘Big Why’ is so important to your success.
So what did I do?
I found, what I like to call and Green Buddy! You may think I’ve lost my mind, but let me explain. I truly believe there are 3 types of buddies:
A Red Buddy- is a friend you have that will be the first to tell you a horror story to try and stop you moving forward. They’re comfortable and happy where you are and they don’t want you to progress.
An Amber Buddy- is a friend that listens but doesn’t really hear. They’ll nod along and accept what you’re saying but doesn’t offer any input.
A Green Buddy- is someone who is so excited for your growth and development and will support you. Don’t get me wrong, they will challenge you but on facts and figures but won’t tell you horror stories to try and stop your following your dreams.
You may be surprised at who will be your green buddy. It’s not always your partner or best friend it could be someone completely different. In fact, when I first started my property journey my partner was a red buddy! He wouldn’t support me and thought I wasn’t clever enough to get involved in property. However, I had great pleasure telling him that I owned 13 properties and was quitting my job!
This may seem really simple, but having the right support network around you, will really help you and your journey.
