Lean on your Support Network

Motivation Monday

You won't always have the right answers... that's normal and okay. The road to success is not paved by doing everything on your own.

💡 One of our Treehouse Values is: "Learning fast is better than being right".

"Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I do that every day. Asking for help isn't a sign of weakness, it's a sign of strength. It shows you have the courage to admit when you don't know something, and to learn something new."

– Barack Obama

💚 Build your Support Network

One of the keys to success is knowing when you need support and being brave enough to reach out for help.

Your loved ones, family, and friends are an integral part of your Support Network as you strive toward your learning and life goals. Know that they are there for you... and that it's okay to lean on them.

Join or create a community of designers or coders that you vibe with. Ask questions and share your challenges. You'll be amazed at how quickly your skills and understanding will grow.

And remember... when others reach out to you for support... return the love and keep the support flowing. When we support each other... we learn, grow, and build a more empowered world.
