There may come a time when you look over at the sidelines and no one is there cheering you on. Unfortunately, there may be more times than you or I would like to think about but know that they will come. When that happens, learn to be your biggest cheerleader.
Sometimes we look to others to provide us with encouraging words and motivation when all the while we should be consulting the person who knows us the best; yourself. It is imperative that you understand the importance of being your biggest fan. You cannot reasonably expect everyone to celebrate you every time. However, you can choose to celebrate yourself as early and often as possible.
All throughout high school, I participated in organized sports and extracurricular activities. For a number of reasons, my parents were not able to attend any of my games or ceremonies. During those times, I developed and strengthened the “cheer yourself on” muscle. Sometimes you have to motivate and encourage yourself. Although no one was there to cheer me on, it did not prevent me from winning.
Be your biggest fan.
