Change and self-improvement is tough to achieve. This is why it is vital that you have a support system in place to enable you to make progress, and to have people to speak to, ask for support, when you need it. These people can come from work and from life. Have you ever asked for mentorship? Or do you belong to a group or society externally? These self-built networks are critical to assisting a person in stepping up and finding support when you need it.
