Along my journey there have been people who invested in me. Whether they did this intentionally or as part of their DNA they made a difference in me! One of those people probably doesn’t even realize the impact she made on my life. About 5 years ago I decided I wanted to move into Project management. I really felt that with my customer service focus and technical experience this would be a great fit for me.
She not only invested in me but she affirmed my dream, telling me that I could do it! That I would not only be good, but I would be excellent! It was another 2 years before I realized my dream but now I am securely in my position and looking to take the next step.
You see I had doubts about if I could do this job, and she didn’t even hesitate to say YES! To say you got this!! So many times people need help believing they can achieve their dreams. We may feel that we aren’t sure, or question if this is the right dream for them, what if we instead we had faith! Instead of doubt we said YES!
I know from experience sometimes our doubt isn’t on their ability but on our own insecurities. What if this person exceeds us? What if they are better? You may not want to admit this but dig deep you may find this is actually true!
This week ask your team what their dreams are!! What do they hope to do? Then tell them they can do it! Be honest and be strong!! They can reach their goals and you can help them!!
