We all like to grow and change, but none of this can be accomplished alone. We need people around us to work with and support us. One characteristic of successful people is the constant need to change and grow.
It is true that change is faster when you get help from other people. Learning is accomplishes at a faster rate when it happens as a process of social interaction. One way to grow is to surround yourself with people who support your dreams and help you make the transition. Often times, we stop ourselves from changing because of certain fears or simple because we lose momentum along the way. That is when having a strong support system really helps propel you along.
A support system also provides you feedback on areas of improvement. Asking your support group for targeted feedback can help you grow at a faster rate. A support group can also get you try new things and this can open up new avenues.
The most important benefit of having a support group is that it challenges your thinking. They help you push the boundaries of your envelope and in the process learn, grow and succeed.
