5 Reasons You Need A Tribe

Let me tell you 5 short reasons why you need a tribe:

  1. You need the energy that being in communication with like-minded people can give to your soul.
  2. You need to know that you are not alone in your journey.  Loneliness can take you down really dark paths.
  3. You need someone to affirm your gifts, talents and ideas.
  4. You need to be pour into other people, be a listener too.
  5. You need to know your'e not crazy; unicorns do exist, LOL!

This past weekend I got to expereince what being a tribe just like the one I mentioned above feels like.  I heard from soul invigorating speakers like Dr. Ray Charles, Susie Carder and Lisa Nichols.

Below are some nuggets from the 3 Day conference:

  1. Don't play into your smallness; play into your greatness.
  2. Define what success truly looks like for YOU.
  3. Value is about serving the client.
  4. Limiting beliefs not only limit performance but it limits the value I offer to clients.

I have a notebook full of notes and memories to last a lifetime.

Find your tribe.

Fear Of Failure

When the fear of failure is present, or should I say lurking, you know you are headed in the right direction!

The vast majority of us want to leave a legacy.

We want to leave this earth knowing, we have positively impacted another human.

We want to be remembered for having done something good in our world. 

For some individuals, this might mean adoption, for others this means going to the moon and then again for others this means helping someone keep their home tidy and clean.

You see, we all have a part to play.  And with each passing year, we lose the opportunity to be able to make an impact.  Don't get me wrong, I am a firm believer in "it's never too late" but I am also part realist.

The choice to fear the unknown is not a new fear to humans but an old trick that keeps us trapped in mediocrity. 

I implore you to assess your life.  You don't have to start a business, a nonprofit or anything business related if that's not your calling.  Maybe you're needed most to be present for your local church, maybe the homeless shelter could use a extra hands, maybe the nursing home needs some visitors to ease the mind of the aging or maybe your grandchildren need you to be active and present in their lives.

Wherever you find yourself, just remember, someone in this world is waiting on you.  Do not allow fear to hold you hostage. 

On the other side of fear is great happiness and everything you have been dreaming of!

Do not fear failure, embrace it because there are lessons in every moment and lessons leanred make you wiser and stronger.

The Journey Begins

This will be the first of many posts where I share with you my journey to starting a business.
To be really honest I've “started” a few business but not really.
If you are an entrepreneur at heart you know exactly what I mean.
There’s this moments or this process that happens when suddenly you have a great idea.
Since I’m into tech at least from the users end, I dive right it with names, logos, securing domains, social media properties and printed material.
Mentally, I can visualize how awesome this is going to be, how many people will be served and how great an opportunity this will be for me and my family.
Then crickets.  Why is that you might ask? Cause I never had a real plan.  

Hard truth, I know.  I don’t like it but truth sets you free, right?
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Ideas are easy to come by but it’s the executive of those ideas that separate the dreamers from the doers.  Another hard truth pill I had to swallow.                                                             

Now that I’m thinking about it, another fault of mine was the constant need for approval.  I would want others to love my idea before I would even attempt to act on it.  
I have since learned that seeking approval from others is usually a bad idea.
Not everyone is a dreamer, not everyone grasp the vision and not everyone wants you to succeed. 
I can only imagine how difficult it must have been for Maya Angelou, Madame Cj Walker, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Patricia Bath and Oprah to push forward in the face of I bet was great negativity.
There is an art to the start of just about everything we experience in life.  I believe I am well on my way to mastering the art of the start.
