For the last couple of episodes, I’ve been talking about the kinds of connections we have in life and how these connections can have a big impact on our happiness and success, by virtue of the fact that attitudes are “contagious” and tend to rub off on others. Today, I’m going to look at how you can use this effect in beneficial ways by showing you how to build your tribe – a mutually supportive group of people who help each other to succeed.
In today’s podcast I cover all the details and definitions about what a tribe really is and how it works. I give you some great tips and strategies on how to build your tribe from the ground up, starting with the kinds of characteristics and traits you’re going to want in the people who will be a part of that tribe, and I also give you some ideas on where to start looking for the right kind of people.
When you’ve made that decision to really start taking your dreams seriously and to start doing something about them, it can get pretty lonely sometimes, especially if you have no one in your life who really understands why it means so much to you to be doing what you’re doing. Learning how to build your tribe by finding like-minded individuals who can support you through the inevitable ups and downs will make the process so much easier, and in some cases can even spell the difference between success and failure. And it’s always more fun when you have people to travel that road of life with, isn’t it?
Listen in to get all the details on how to build you tribe right here:

Wow, Nathalie. These podcasts keep getting better and better! I admit I zoned out a bit after you said that I am the sum if the 5 people I hang out with. In my early life, my mom had a negative impact on me, so I’ve been kind of damaged in that sense and my personal development has been with the aim to fix that. Maybe this can be a future article? Sad childhood, fulfilled life with the LOA!
It takes a while to come up with a posse. Sometimes friends do not turn out to be what you thought they were, even though instinctually you did. Also, if you live in an area where you are the best and smartest, you will need to wait until college to make some better friends. One can always make friends if they are open to it, giving, thoughtful.
And the internet. Thanks for mentioning that! That is how I listen to you!
Hi A. — your past may have had a negative impact on you, but it did bring you to where you are today. There’s a quote that I really like that says “Don’t judge me by my past; I don’t live there anymore.” It affected you, but you are the one who gets to decide what happens from here on in. Not them. And I love the idea of childhood experience as a future article — thanks for suggesting it! 🙂
Yes, it does take time to cultivate your posse. It’s not something that will happen overnight, but, as with all thing, it’s the little everyday steps that add up over time. And it can be really hard to do if social interaction is not your biggest strength — it takes a lot of guts to come out of your shell and interact with people like that. But we all need others, whether we like to acknowledge it or not; there is no way that one person can know all and do all. We all have different areas of expertise and knowledge, and can help each other from our own areas of strength. And yes, being open, giving and thoughtful is the best way to approach anything in life, including networking. 🙂
As far as the podcast being listed and ranked, maybe you should list it under “self-help” or “spirituality” or “LOA”. I think being listed under education may confuse people. The things that follow it are Shakesspeare and literature and their and your stuff is technically not under that category. Just a suggestion so people can find you easier.
Yikes! Thanks for the heads-up on the category — I hadn’t realized that’s what I was categorized under. I’ve changed it to spirituality, and it should filter through within then next few days.
