Not A Lot Of People Have Got Your Back, But Here We Are

Learn about the support you can get from others when doing a challenge together.

We all know that support is vital to achieving our goals. The right kind of support can make all the difference in getting you through the tough times, and it doesn’t necessarily have to come from someone else. Support can come from within yourself, or from a community of like-minded people who are also trying to achieve their goals. But how do you find that community? That's where we come in!

The best support comes from the people who are doing the same challenge as you.

Let's say that you've signed up for a calimove challenge. Remember, the best support comes from the people who are doing the same discipline as you. You can relate to each other’s struggles and feelings, navigate the ups and downs of your challenge together and celebrate when you reach a goal. It can be easier to do something that seems impossible if there is someone else pushing themselves along with you.

You're not alone in your challenge, and that can make all the difference.

It's easy to get overwhelmed when you're trying to accomplish something big, but it's worth remembering that you're not alone. You can learn from others who have accomplished what you're trying to do and use their tips as inspiration for your own journey, or even ask them for advice on how they did it. Your support network might also be able to help out with practical things, like offering a some nutritional advice if you're questioning what your personal trainer has suggested or sharing yoga mats for a group workout. It feels good when everyone in the group has all of their needs met.

Even more importantly than the practical stuff, though: having a community around you means that when things get tough (and they will), there are people there who will understand how hard it is. They know how much work goes into challenging yourself and the cost of growing as an individual. They will understand whenever other people in your life don't; because of this empathy, they'll be able to offer encouragement instead of judgement if you miss a workout.

Community is vital to our survival and happiness

It is important for us to remember that we are not alone in our struggles because it makes us feel like we don't belong in this world when all the things around us say otherwise. Community is vital for survival and happiness because without community we would have never survived as a species.

It’s equally important not to let the idea of support get in the way of achieving your goals.

It’s equally important not to let the idea of support get in the way of achieving your goals. It can be easy to get carried away and forget that you are doing a 30 day calisthenics challenge, for example, for yourself, not anyone else. You have to trust yourself, and know that you are capable of making decisions that are right for you. If someone else has a better plan than what you came up with then consider it (and maybe even use it), but don't let their opinion completely override your own instincts!

You can achieve more when surrounded by people who support you.

You're not alone.

I know that it can be hard to reach out and ask for help, but the people who support you will be glad you did. You don't have to do this alone; there are other people out there who are facing the same challenges you are, and they want to help. They may even have ideas about how to make your challenge more successful or easier for you!

You might not think that having others around makes much of a difference, but it does: studies show that when we're doing something difficult — like doing daily workouts with the 100 Days of Discipline — it's actually easier if we have friends around us supporting our efforts by cheering us on, offering encouragement whenever we need it, giving advice (or reminding us of our goals), etc.

Having someone else there for your calisthenics program can make all the difference in whether or not you'll succeed at whatever challenge you're facing!


As you can see, there's a lot to be said for the power of support. It's not just about having people around you who want to help out; it’s about knowing that there are people who will be there for you no matter what. You matter AND other people believe in you! Remember that and take care of those people too.
