You can’t do this alone

The self-made man (or women) is a myth. It’s a made up fable intended to trick you into believing that if you don’t hit your goals all by yourself, you should probably just give up.

The world doesn’t want you to try. The world wants you to give up and sit quietly in your corner so to not upset the status quo.

The world doesn’t want you to know about a little secret…

Ask for help.

You don’t have to ask an “expert.” Any ordinary person will do. Better yet, find someone who wants to achieve what you want to achieve. Having just one person in your life who keeps you accountable to your journey is worth the years of struggling on your own.

Even better, build a community. Whether its in-person or virtual, find a group of people who want what you want out of life. Help them. Then let them help you.

It’s that simple.

You can’t accomplish your thing alone. Ask for help, build a community, and get to work.
