Great Health: Finding Your Dream Team
written by Megan McGrath
All of us need a good support network. Our lives are made all the better by having people to help us out when we need it. When we decide and are committed to change, it is vital to have the right people around us to encourage, support and celebrate our success. This is what I like to call a ‘Dream Team’ – they are people who genuinely care and want the best for us. These people want to see us achieve our goals and fulfil our potential.
Whilst some people lift, nurture and encourage us, others can have the opposite effect. These are the people who might shoot down your idea, lead you astray or are just plain unsupportive. They are the people that want you to keep drinking with them, putting on weight with them; they might want you to continue smoking with them. They will sabotage your efforts because it is uncomfortable for them to see you step up. For you to succeed shines a light on their own insecurities.
Our ‘team’ effects our wellbeing
Our wellbeing is certainly influenced by those around us so it is important for us to surround ourselves with a team of people that cultivate healthy and positive behaviour. If we can keep this in mind we can have greater insights into the quality of our interactions and their energetic effect on us. We need to choose our team carefully – as they will help us strive or wilt.
I encourage all my clients to choose a ‘Dream Team’. In my experience they are crucial in supporting a person achieve positive and lasting change. Our team inspire us to be a better person, can provide us with motivation to achieve our goals, empower us to make changes, hold us accountable and are happy for our success.
