Here’s What You Need To Know About The Power of Teams & Why You Need A Solid Team Today

A great team is key to any person who has been successful throughout history.  Your team can be your family, business partners, friends, and mentors. Your alliance is your team, it can be your family or the people who work with you. Like many things in life, having a team to get you all there is key to your ability to succeed. You can’t do it alone. Take for instance the ancient African proverb that still rings true today in business and in life: “It takes a village to raise a child.” Here are 5 key ways you can begin to build your alliance, if you are new to a city and are finding your way, or if you already have one and are looking to strengthen your ties with the people in your alliance who are meaningful to you.

 

1. Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

When you are building your alliance, you want to make sure you check yourself to make sure you are sending out the right signals. If you keep attracting bad company, it might be a sign you need to change something within yourself. As it were, how business and eastern culture philosophy are tied together. You’ve Got to ‘know thyself’. Want to attract positive and productive people? Change your vibe. To do this, begin to change the thoughts you think into affirmations that align with who you want to be.

2. Strengthen What You Do Have

We all know people in our lives that we want to be closer to, we have people that we want to improve our relationships with. Don’t feel bad if you’ve been going through a difficult time and have previously been hard on yourself or others. You want to make sure to forgive yourself for whatever happened, and to care for yourself. If you begin to treat yourself well, then you can have the capacity to treat others well. Start to strengthen the ties you have with people that you care about. You want to make time to spend with people who love and celebrate you, let go of others who don’t. Start to love and trust your business partners, friends, and family (if you have not already). Go for coffee, go for brunch, and hey you can even go for mimosas!

3. Talk To People

This is very important, for introverts and extroverts. Your Ability to talk to people, and to to communicate with others is your key survival tool in our fast-paced, and sometimes cold, world. The more you talk to people, the more likely you are to meet people who are like you. Many of us move around a lot in our 20-somethings, and it can be hard to meet people at first. Find networking events and even go speed dating to increase the likelihood that you can meet people who really care about you. It can be challenging at first, but don’t give up. Press on because it is truly worth it.

4. Make What You Do With Your Alliance Count

You’re aiming for the next level, and your team is counting on you to help all of you get to where you are going. This is why sports and business partnerships are so important. Make sure you have common goals with the people you surround yourself with. Are you in a running group? Nice. Make a 12-mile race goal that you can all do together. Are you building your freelance practice out? Awesome. Make weekly goals to acquire new clients that you and your colleagues can provide services to. It’s all about building each other up and helping your team get to the next level.

5. Take Steps Today

To strengthen what you currently have, or to begin to build your alliance for a new chapter in your life, take out both a notebook and a planner. What you will need to do is set the intention, one of the first steps to creating your reality. When you take pen to paper and write out what you want to do and how you want your life to be, something magical happens. Write out the person you want to be, and how you want your life to look in the notebook, and then take your planner and write out actions you will take every day in order to get to where you intend to be. This is constructive goal setting, and when you have a plan it is 90% more likely to work out.

Plan to spend intentional time with your business partners and family. Make sure you build others up and that they support you. You can go so far when you are with a team, so make it count and do your best every day. You are 100% responsible for your life, your success, and the well being of your relationships. The good life is for you so give it a chance because you are worth it. It’s time to build up your team, make it stronger every day, and go forward into life with confidence.

Cheers to teamwork,
