Build your tribe: Emit the vibes you want to receive
We’ve all heard the phrase, “you are what you eat”. Well, the same applies to build your tribe. Your vibe attracts your tribe. You must emit the aura you want to attract. If you want to build your tribe with women who empower one another, you must empower. If you want to build your tribe with friends who are movers and shakers, start moving and shaking. You will get back what you put out. I want to build my tribe with ladies who drip glitter, determine their own destiny’s, and lead prosperous lives. So that means, I better start (and keep) dripping!
Routine maintenance of your tribe
This is the part where most of us struggle. Adulting, in general, is the struggle, but add finding (and maintaining) your tribe in the mix…le sigh. Everyone knows you’ re busy and have boss moves to make, but make time for your tribe. First, set out allotted time to spend with your tribe. Text, talk, tweet, go out for a drink. Don’t let your relationships fall to the wayside. We make time for the things that are important to us. Honesty, I’m still working on this part. I get so caught up in my goals, I sometimes forget to connect with my tribe.
Yes new friends, join my tribe!
Seriously, the days of “no new friends” have passed. If you want to build a tribe, you must accept the awkwardness that is making new friends. Now, I am not saying you need a ton of friends, but those two awesome girls (or guys) may be the perfect addition to the boss tribe you are building. Move past your comfort zone and get to know people before you decide…”Nah I’m good on friends”.
In the end, we all want a tribe that helps us become our best selves, holds us up when we are falling, and has a hair tie in their purse when your hair decides to have a mind of its own. Finding the right people to complete your tribe is no easy feat, but hey, Wakanda wasn’t built in a day and neither will your life be.
Keep doing (the best) you boo!
