You are not alone on your personal goals and projects.
Often, we can feel overwhelmed or isolated in our pursuit of achieving something meaningful. Whether it’s starting a new business, learning a new skill, or pursuing a passion project, it can be challenging to make progress without support or guidance.
Studies have shown that runners find it more motivating to train with a friend or a running group compared to doing it alone. Similarly, students who study in groups tend to perform better on exams than those who study alone. The power of social support extends to various aspects of our lives, including personal growth and achievement.
Your community is filled with individuals who possess a wide range of skills and abilities that can help you achieve your personal goals. These individuals include friends, family members, acquaintances, and even strangers who are passionate about their interests and eager to help others.
The Power of Hiring “Free” Human Resources for Personal Growth
By tapping into your community resources, you can not only achieve your personal goals but also build stronger relationships within your community. Collaborating with others who share your passions can lead to increased motivation, accountability, and a sense of shared purpose.
When we talk about “free” human resources for personal growth, we’re referring to individuals who are willing to share their time, expertise, and resources with you. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who may not have the financial resources or access to professional networks to achieve their goals.
Share your life project and receive support for “Free”
You should tell around about your life projects, about what you want to achieve, and enjoy the good conversations that it can bring out of it. People likes to help, but they can only do if you open yourself and ask for support regarding the challenges that you need to overcome. But to have better conversations, it’s important to avoid hijacking the conversation and denying the less positive parts of the answer – the part that ask for additional effort. Instead, try to ask questions and show genuine interest in what the other person has to recommend. This can help create a sense of mutual understanding and respect, and can also lead to new insights and perspectives.
Nevertheless, you need to consider that the time of every person who supports you is limited. Your expectation about the support and feedback you will receive should be low and you should feel grateful for every bit of help you get.
Does it come really for “free”?
Every human resource is a person with his or her own interests, goals and life. You should clearly identify and communicate what you expect from him or her and you should also consider what your human resources stand to gain. For example, what can you offer in exchange for their time?
Human resources are not really for free. People expect something back from you. Everyone expects something. Then why do I call them “free” human resources? Because what they expect can be non-monetary. What they might want in exchange is your experience, exposure, or the simple satisfaction of helping someone like you (so again, if you reject/deny all what theyr’e saying, you’re not contributing to that feeling).
For example, if you’re interested in starting a business, you might seek out a mentor who has experience in your industry. In exchange for their guidance and support, you could offer to help with their own business endeavors or assist them in networking and marketing efforts.
Similarly, if you’re looking to learn a new skill, you might seek out a friend or acquaintance who has expertise in that area. In exchange for their time and knowledge, you could offer to share your own skills or assist with a project they’re working on.
Some might only be interested in becoming your partner and taking the same journey, perhaps benefitting from your transformational growth. Others want part of your time, to exchange the role and have you as a good listener and advisor.
Summary and practical tip
In today’s world, achieving life projects often requires more than just individual effort. By tapping into the “free” human resources that are available within your community, you can gain access to the knowledge, expertise, and support you need to succeed. Moreover, building relationships with others who share your passions can be a rewarding experience in itself, creating a sense of belonging and purpose in your life. So the next time you’re working towards a personal goal, consider reaching out to those around you. You might be surprised at how much help and inspiration you can find.
Practical tip: At the end, appreciate every kind of feedback that you receive. During your life project, say please and thank you often. Don’t forget that your “free” human resources are not only free to join and support you but also free to leave and use their time for other things. So, ask yourself: what’s in it for them? How to engage them? What part of your life project could be of interest to every person who supports you?
I wish You a Fa-Bu-Lux Life 🙂
