Anytime Resolution - As the name suggests, it is a resolution that can be taken up anytime when you feel the need and are ready for a change. I hope to provide you with some useful suggestions that will bring you closer to living a more flourishing life in various aspects.
Today's Anytime Resolution is to identify and nurture your tribe as opposed to trying to win everyone's approval and acceptance.
If you're anything like me, one of your goals in life is to make people like or love you. I've learnt that this is a futile endeavor because no matter what we do, there will always be three categories of people.
1. People who love and support you no matter what you do.
2. People who couldn't care less what you do.
3. People who dislike you.
Instead of focusing on two and three, it makes more sense to identify, focus and invest in the first group. These are your tribe members or home team. What happens is that too many people spend enormous time trying to convert people from category two and three and it is simultaneously tiring and demoralizing.
Stop wasting your effort and time. Expend the energy instead on those who already love and accept you regardless. This is far more rewarding. A wise person said,"Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."
Thus, it is fitting that I should give a shout out to my tribe; people who have supported and believed in me and my potential all this while. Thank you so much! You guys are my rock!
Here's a video that provides more explanation on finding your tribe.
Don't forget to express your appreciation to your tribe and better still share this post with them!
Come, let's flourish together!
