Do you have dreams? Do you have fears that those dreams are not going to be your reality? Or do you fear what life would be like when your dream does happen?
Breaking away from your fears through doing and not waiting is what can either make or break your dreams to be a real thing.
This is why creating your own inner circle plays a big role. It’s the support system that doesn’t squash your ideas and dreams. Instead, they help you brainstorm, lift you up on those darker days and give you a different perspective.
A group friend that are on the similar path in life and business. People who you can bounce ideas off without fearing to give too much away. And more importantly, they hold you accountable and will call you out on your bullshit.
It is one of those elements in our lives that we all should have. You could, of course, build your dreams alone, but isn’t celebrating success with friends better?
When I had the idea for The Rebels Den, to say I was scared, would be totally an understatement. But it was my inner circle that guided and helped me through it. My inner circle consists of my best friend, my accountability partner and a select few of my social media friends that I have not yet met in person.
Your Inner circle can see the blind spots, especially if you are frustrated. They can guide you through the mindset challenge you’re facing. They can give you a different perspective. They can hold you accountable. They can and will support you without questions. And they may even challenge you.
Your inner circle is not the place and space to whine and complain how nothing is working out. Instead engage with them to brainstorming, collaborating and creating dreams together.
Your inner circle will have different skills to suit yours and will be a mastermind of supporting you. Different skills complement each other well as opposed to everyone having the same skill.
Inner circle will provide you with emotional support, encouragement, informational support and tangible support. It is your success team.
Creating your inner circle
- Make a list identifying who you go to for support. Circle the ones that are a positive influence and who are the negative people (the ones that are always Debbie Downer).
- Now make a list of the ones that you want to add to your inner circle and tell them that. Be honest with them and tell them why you want them for support and accountability.
- Nurture the relationship and share your successes and struggles and do hang out with them for fun.
You don’t have to do this alone! All you need to do is decide who the people are in your life that can support you and connect with them.
A word of warning perhaps, some will be on board and show up – some will not. We are all on our own journey and have different needs. So talk to the people that have made your list. See if they are open to be part of your circle.
Now go off and create your inner circle of dreamers and doers and start building success together!
