I found this little gem on YouTube, created by Jonathan Fields to support the launch of his newest book “Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance.”

It’s not only an important lesson for parents. It’s an important lesson for all of us. When I moved to the United States, the majority of my friends I would be back within a year. They thought I made a huge mistake and didn’t have a lot of faith in me. We lost contact quickly. The ones that had faith in me remained friends.

It’s important to support yourself with people that believe in you. And it’s important to believe in others. We need this support as much as oxygen, water and food. Sometimes, it’s the only thing that keeps you afloat.
