Think of your job, career, family, kids, relationships -- you did NOT get where you are today alone. You had people help you, cheering you on along the way. Think of your friends, family, teachers, mentors, bosses, coaches -- WHO helped you become all that you are today?
Great people are those that fail, but get back up. Great people are those that recognize the people who have helped mold, shape and spur them on along the way of Life. And great people are those that pay it forward and become a cheerleader for someone else.
And it doesn't matter how old you are, your IQ, level of education, job, income, skin color…Everyone can take someone under the wing whether it's a CEO teaching an intern or a 5 year-old helping a sibling learn how to walk. It just takes a willing heart and time.
Personally, my heart swells with gratitude to think of the multitude of cheerleaders in my life. I know I would not be the woman I am today without them. The least I can do now is pay it forward and be a cheerleader to someone else.
Now take 2 minutes, watch the video below, thank a cheerleader in your life and then call someone to mentor. It's a new year, it's a new day, it's a NEW YOU! Invest in someone! PAY IT FORWARD!
