If you’re an online educator, coach, speaker, or transformational leader then you’ve probably heard a TON of people talking about the importance of “BUILDING YOUR TRIBE”.
Entire courses are sold on just this ONE thing, so it’s definitely NO surprise to me that people often ask me “HOW DO I *BUILD* MY TRIBE?”…
So if you’ve ever wondered how to build YOUR tribe, here’s my ONE WORD answer…
Don’t try to BUILD a tribe.
I tried for SO LONG to figure out how to “BUILD” my tribe—how to do things in such a way to POSITION myself so that I’d get a MASSIVE following. And you know what I FINALLY realized?
I don’t NEED to BUILD one…
MY tribe ALREADY exists.
All I needed to do was CALL THEM IN.
Instead of trying to BUILD them, I simply needed to raise my hand and say, “This is what I believe in; these are my intentions; these are the things that are the guiding forces in my life; and if you BELIEVE in those things too, if you AGREE with those things, and if that’s the way YOU live your life or you WANT to live your life, then YOU’RE MY TRIBE”.
Don’t waste your time trying to position yourself to appeal to the people you THINK are your tribe; just RAISE YOUR HAND and start SHARING – from your heart, soul, and enthusiasm – what you BELIEVE, what you STAND FOR, what MATTERS to YOU…
Do that CONSISTENTLY and with a focus on creating REAL value for people in the world, and you’ll call your TRUE TRIBE in.
The people that BELIEVE what YOU believe ALREADY exist. The people that will LOVE and TRUST you exactly as you ARE and that will BELIEVE in your intentions and CARE about your message (because it’s essentially THEIR message as well) already exist.
All you have to do is raise your hand and call them in!
