It's been a while since I've written about what's happening in SR (Streets Revolution) and believe me when I say a lot has happened in that time.
We have different directors now and this has helped guide the next evolution of SR.
I've visited our project on Tanzania met some amazing people and guided them on the beginning of their journey. I'm going to be writing a separate blog about that soon, so I'll hold fire on any more details. Although if you follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter you may have already caught a glimpse of the magical experience.
In this blog I wanted to stop, reflect and talk about the opportunity to have people guide you along the journey.
It's become clearer as the months and years have passed, we are treading a very different path than I thought 7 years ago.
You probably have heard the expression "it's not about the destination, it's about the journey." I truly believe that and wanted to elaborate on what that means for me and if we're on a journey, sometimes you need a guide to show the way, right?
Everyone, and I mean everyone at some point gets either stuck or lost, not knowing which direction to go. Especially if your a founder, self starter or CEO, everyone's looking at you for that direction.
It can be a lonely, scary place.
The good news is that there are people out there to help, people who for the price of a coffee will share their knowledge, experience and thoughts about where you find yourself and how to unblock the impasse.
They are MENTORS and if you look carefully they are all around you.
I've had 2 mentors recently with different backgrounds and each one has helped me figure out what the next steps are and how we should move forward.
I also like to think that at the core of what we do at SR is mentoring individual like minded people to help them change their communities, no matter what the scale or direction.
Obviously that will look different in different countries and places. Ultimately we are learning from each other.
I hope you find that someone and also that you realise you could be THAT person for someone else. We all need a guide in life or business.
We can all be so close to the problem you can't see the wood for the trees. Take a minute to talk with someone you like and respect who has travelled a path successfully to see what you can learn, it's never too late.
I encourage you all to keep following your passion and find a guide to get you there.
