Choose your TRIBE

As I am working on creating content for coaching, I am realizing how important having a tribe is. It is so important to be surrounded by people that encourage you and challenge you to be a better person. It is even more amazing to have like-minded people in your corner.

It is so important for many reasons. There are certain things you should look for in a tribe. Continue reading for the reasons for what your tribe should have. 

Accountability

This is so important because our tribe can support us in achieving our goals or not. If we have a tribe that doesn’t hold us accountable, we won’t get as much done. If we have a tribe that holds us accountable for our actions and goals, we will go much farther. It is also just as important for you to hold others in your tribe accountable. This is how a tribe thrives and grows.

Be like-minded

Having like-minded people in your life is one of the best things you can do for yourself. If you want to open a business and don’t know how to, surround yourself with other business owners to learn and grow with them. If you surround yourself with people who don’t think to challenge themselves is a big deal, then you won’t be challenged. We want to be around people who have similar goals, morals, and determination.

Honest and trustworthy

Honesty and trustworthiness are important when choosing your tribe. If you can’t trust or be honest with those closest to you, how will this affect your goals and life? I know being around honest and trustworthy people is key. I won’t surround myself with others who aren’t trustworthy and honest. We share our deep selves with our tribe so having the peace they are trustworthy is so important.

Challenges you

We don’t grow if we aren’t challenges in our lives. Challenges create growth and awareness. It’s those times of struggle that get us one step higher than we were before. When everything is easy we don’t learn. So it’s important we find people for our tribe that challenge us

Supportive

We all go through times of change and struggle. It’s part of life. So, we want a tribe that is there for us. We want friends that help us move to a new house, or help support our dreams. If a friend is going through a rough time, we want to make sure we are there for them in whatever way is possible. And we want our friends to do the same for us. Having supportive friends makes life easier when it is tough. I have had my fair share of downs and felt alone and unsupportive. I have adjusted my life so that I have supportive friends and I am supportive of them. It is what makes a tribe work.

Go find your tribe

If you don’t have a tribe, start looking for one. There are so many amazing ways to create a tribe. There are meetup groups, church, Zumba classes (or similar classes), facebook groups, and so many more. Get out there and find your tribe.

I will be creating a private group for paying clients to connect with other like-minded women, within the next few months. It will be another opportunity for you to find your tribe.
