They all say "it takes a village to ...." do this or that, to achieve this or that, etc. The "village" is the support system you have around you. People who help you, people who house you, people that physically pick you up when you are down, or verbally/emotionally pick you up when you are down, people that give certain specific bits of knowledge that open the door, etc. Yes, we all have these people there to help us out. But as another saying goes, " you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink" talks about the "village" giving you all the keys and help you need but if the person doesn't take action on it, then nothing happens. Think about your village: your parents, your spouse, your best friend, your aunts and uncles, your study group, your teammates, your coach, etc. All of these people are here to, and want to, help you. But the ONLY person that can make that happen is YOU. If you don't want to, then it doesn't matter how big or amazing the village is. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN. The drive MUST come from you. The dream MUST come from you. The standing up through adversity MUST come from you. Once you have all of these factors then YES the village will be able to help you reach new lengths and new heights you never thought you could. The teamwork allows for your greatness to go wild! So you have the drive and the determination. Now what? Now you need to ask for help. I am terrible at this. I think I always thought it was a sign of weakness. Boy was I wrong. Asking for help allows you to QUICKLY get past areas that you normally would be stumped on. You get to see how to do it so that you have a new tool in your toolbox for the next time. However, asking for help doesn't mean you are looking for someone to do it for you. You want them to help you, teach you, assist you. But make it so that it still is YOU doing it! You feel good because you are still doing it, they feel good because they got to help you do something great and the VILLAGE moves forward. So the next time you are sitting at the door, poised for greatness (even for normal-ness), fire yourself up, get your village behind you, and lead your way through that door! Smash it down! There will be wonderful things on the other side. It just takes YOU to go and get it!:)
