Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together.
I have listened to several motivational speakers/life coaches/successful people/wealthy people and they all have pretty much came up with the same idea…
“In order to be successful you must surround yourself with likeminded people.”
I was on a motivational call the other night and the leader, Vicki Irvin was stating that it is necessary to look for a mentor, someone who has achieved your goal, or the next step in your process, in order to help you achieve your goals. Let me just quickly throw this in there too, she also said to “Never ask someone to mentor you for free…” (just a helpful hint), because it’s as if you are asking the person to cheat off of their paper after they studied hard for an exam.
Now with the mentoring idea and surrounding yourself with likeminded individuals, it sounds like you need a group or TEAM in order to really succeed. A DREAM TEAM….
So how do we start to create this dream team? We need to network. We need to join organizations, meet-up groups, chamber of commerce, & church groups…
I had a vending event this weekend for my online boutique, Pink Pearl Couture (www.pinkpearlcouture.com,
like us on FB www.facebook.com/thepinkpearlcouture) and I decided to go around and meet the other vendors. I met so many awesome, motivated, like-minded individuals…everyone aspiring to reach it to the top. I had similar conversations with people about people who you thought would be there for you, disappearing… WE ALL felt the same way…
I was standing outside looking at the bare trees…all the leaves have disappeared this season, but be encouraged because in our next season, the tree will be filled with beautiful flowers (our DREAM TEAM)….
So until next time Anticipate, Self-Assure, Persist, Inspire, Reach, Evolve HIGHER!
