Concept of a Tribe
What would it be like to have a tribe of passionate ambitious people around you who are also facing similar challenges? Like-minded people who want to grow, who want to discover why they are here and which gifts they have to bring to the world? What would it be like to feel supported, stimulated, motivated and cheered at for the progress you make in your personal growth, instead of being held back and questioned? What would it be like to be supported to be courageous and show up, to manifest your dreams into reality?
This is the concept of a Tribe. This is what a Tribe meeting is about.
Just imagine what it will be like to have your own group of strivers and achievers around you! People that really want to put in the effort to grow, to make their dreams come true!
Growth and Connection
In this time of super connectivity over the internet, fleeting contacts are the norm. We briefly meet, share conversations over WhatsApp, Messenger and phone without arriving at a deep level of truly listening to each other. Whether it is in your business, your study, your romantic life, your other relationships, or in any area of your personal development, doing things alone is no fun.
Questions and Topics within a Tribe
Once you realize that the ordinary 9 to 5 life is not satisfying you, it’s time to reflect and change your strategies. When there are few people around you who also want this, the path can be very overwhelming. Which areas of my life do I want to change first? Where do I want to focus on? How can I have more meaningful connections with others? How can I increase my productivity? What is my purpose? Why are we here? What makes me happy? What are my values?
These are questions that are discussed within a tribe meeting.
What would it be like to have one or two moments a month where you can share what is going on, in a supportive environment? To have a strict structure where within maximum efficiency, you can reach the depths of your subconscious mind to answer your deepest desires? Where it is encouraged to go beyond the chitchat, to go beyond the surface of things and have a magnified look at your deeper values and drives? Because finding answers to these questions will lead to fulfilment in all areas of your life. Only you know what can make you truly happy. Others can inspire you, reflect back at you, and help you to find your own answers. As you discover these answers, it is time to put them into action. To set specific ambitious realistic goals and actually achieve them. This is how you manifest your reality. By actively taking control of your life.
Why would you want to go through the effort of setting up a growth tribe? It takes effort to set it up properly but the rewards are endless. Here are 10 benefits you might experience.
1. You can never go this far on your own
Doing things alone is hard. Whether it is your career, fitness, learning to play an instrument, heck even reading books; doing it together with like-minded people makes you focus. It inspires to keep at it, even when you are having setbacks. In whatever area of your life you want to grow, doing it together is bound to make you go further (assuming of course that the people you do it with, are supportive, ambitious and also want to grow!).
2. You will combine multiple minds, creating a ‘mastermind’
By discussing challenges, asking for feedback and input, you connect multiple minds together. You will receive input on your goals and challenges from other members, through their view of the world. The brainstorm capacity that manifests is beyond anything you can do on your own.
3. Sharpen your WHY, HOW and WHAT
Sharing your vision, mission and strategy with a group on a regular basis gives you the clarity you cannot get on your own. It allows you to go deeper into your personal motivations to do what you do and why you do it. It will help you to get crystal clear clarity.
4. You will be held accountable
Sharing your goals with others automatically makes you accountable. It’s easier to keep agreements we make with others than it is with agreements with ourselves. As an employee you are held accountable by your boss or co-workers. When you are self-employed nobody will tell you off when you are late or don’t finish your goals in time. Within a tribe you are supported to achieve your goals fully!
5. You will feel motivated to go for the extra mile
When you see others grow around you, making moves and achieving their goals, you will be motivated to make moves yourself. You see others go fast and you will be like ‘I want that too!’. It’s very motivating to grow together. To achieve your goals and share them in a group.
6. Your network is your net worth
You will become the people you hang out with most. By being part of a group of ambitious people your network will expand. It is through the people we met that we achieve success. Our most important value is the people that support us and can help us move forward. Tribe members can connect you with valuable contacts from their network.
7. Make more money
By getting clarity on your goals, setting them realistically and achieving them through support of your tribe, you are bound to increase revenue. You will declutter distractions and get clarity on what is most important. Your tribe members will keep you sharp and on track.
8. Helping others will make you happy
Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said: “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” You will get great satisfaction from helping other business owners in their businesses.
9. A Tribe is a proven success strategy
High end CEO’s, presidents and entrepreneurs have been using tribe meetings for centuries. Napoleon Hill wrote about this in the book ‘Think and Grow Rich’. “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind. It is the principle through which you can accomplish in one year more than you could accomplish without it in a lifetime if you depended entirely on your own efforts for success”
10. Deep lasting connections with like-minded people
Because you are invited to show yourself fully in vulnerability, in a safe setting, you will get to know each other at a deeper level than you know your best friends and family. This is one of the most powerful mechanisms people experience. Within a few meetings they know what moves the other members at the deepest level of their core. Because of this transparency you will feel fully supported and guided. This leads to connections that will last a lifetime. You will become family.
