What makes us trust, believe, and feel as if we can do and accomplish anything? Support. Whether it’s in a family, in a friend group, or in a business relationship, the right amount of attention and support can make you feel invincible, even when faced with overwhelming obstacles.
Growing up, you could say my family was living in poverty. My parents were raising 4 kids in a country where they couldn’t even speak the language. (This is not an exaggeration, they literally didn’t know what a bath tub, shower, or toilet was.)
Despite this, I never remember feeling like I went without. Looking back, I realize I didn’t have the newest Converse or Pony’s, but I remember being happy and never hungry. My parents always worked hard to put food on the table, clothes on our back, and a roof over our heads. Even if that meant my mom and I went out to dumpster dive for cans for recycling or comb a local field after a hard rain to collect worms to sell. If we weren’t busy with school activities, our weekends were spent fishing to fill up our freezer or transforming our backyard into a garden with fresh fruits and vegetables. Our parents did anything and everything to make sure that my siblings and I were taken care of one way or another.
This is what builds trust and the belief that you can accomplish anything. Their hard work and actions allowed us to grow and thrive, and to this day has instilled the belief that I can do anything. And if I fail? I’ve got a strong safety net of love and support to fall back on.
What kind of relationship do you have with your recruiting partner? Is it purely transactional or do you have a strong family tie? My team and I want to build a strong family tie with you and yours. I will follow in my parents’ footsteps in making sure I do anything and everything possible to take care of your needs. And trust me, together, we can do anything.
