Just trying to change the world, one blogpost at a time.

I am an asset to my team.

"Success is always better when you get to share it with your loved ones."

Though we may be part of different teams as we go through life; sports, projects etc; your main team is your support system; family, partners and friends. It's important to ensure that you have the right people around you to share the highs and get through the lows. Once you have that network, you also have to ensure that you're pulling your weight within that team. Mind you the people that form your support system may change over time, that's okay, just ensure that for the duration that people are in your life you do your best to support them.

Okay so what does it mean to be an asset to your team? It means that you provide something invaluable to the people that you care about. Love, support, honesty, advice, loyalty, a listening ear... all the things you'd expect to gain from your team you need to be willing to give back. Effort has to shown both ways in order for the team to flourish as a whole. Don't call someone and say 'You haven't reached out to me," if you haven't made an effort to reach out either. We all get busy, and sometimes time just flies by without us realising but it's important to check in and keep in touch even more as we get older. 

Being a good friend/partner/family member isn't always easy especially when we are so focused on making things happen for ourselves. We might not always speak or see each other but so long as your team is aware of the love and support you have for them, you're doing your part. A small 'how are you' text can go a long way! Even though your team will no doubt be aware of and understand if you are really busy, be sure to never them for granted and to show your appreciation whenever you have the chance! 

Stay Blessed,
