Miriama's Kupu Tohutohu

Cast your net wide - don’t lean on the things or people you already know, challenge yourself by learning new things, by meeting new people, by trying to understand how someone holds a particular world view (especially if they conflict with yours), and expose yourself to as many experiences as you can.
Network - deliberately seek out opportunities to meet others, to talk, to learn and to connect with. Then help others and allow yourself to be helped. It can mean squashing down ego to do either but the rewards can be enormous.
Seek support and provide it to others.
Ask for allies and affirm your friendships regularly.
Acknowledge those who’ve already blazed a pathway for you.
