Find Your Tribe


“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

Find Your Tribe.

Think about the 5 people who you spend the most time with right now.
Chances are, whether you like it or not, you have a lot in common with these 5 people.

Building a Tribe: Three Key Steps

First, let’s start with a definition:

tribe – a social division in a society consisting of families or
communities linked by social ties with a common culture.
(…give or take paraphrased version applied to modern day)

1) Do some serious self-reflection.

It may be necessary to evaluate yourself and where you stand in the current friend-group you have, and think about whether these people are serving you in a positive way.  Of course having an eclectic friend group is totally acceptable, and is very much encouraged. But, if you love to hike, and be in nature, and all of your friends only like to Netflix and chill…. it may be time to switch, or expand your tribe to include some outdoor lovers!

2) Get yourself out there into the right group.

It is important to build a tribe based on interests. If you love hiking, join a hiking group! If you love running, join a running group! If you love painting, or pottery, or art, join a class or group, they are offered all over Victoria.  This part is kind of the hardest, but don’t be discouraged… It’s important to realize that everyone is human, and chances are, there are people looking to meet others and make new connections in any given group out there! 🙂

3) Keep in Touch!

If you already have a really great group of family or friends to do all of the things you love with, that is awesome! Reach out, and plan some activities :). If you’re just building your tribe, all the more reason to reach out. Make some plans, build relationships and connections!

Have a great Family Day!!!
