Are You Performing or Being?
Have you ever been put in a situation to see people who value you for what you do, not who you are? Close friends, acquaintances, family – all enamored with aspects of your talents or art but uninterested in you as a person.
Thoughts, dreams, beliefs, principles… irrelevant as long as you can perform.
How can growth occur as you’re moving in these circles? Condemned to repeating the same dog and pony show with slight variation day after day.
This is why you need a tribe. A place to grow with those of like mind or goals who are there to push you, to pick you up, to help you create your best art.
You’re not going to do it alone. You need community.
It’s not about performance, it’s about having the freedom to do what gets your heart beating out of your chest. It’s about having people to keep you on course so your best work gets finished.
It should be scary.
It should involve faith.
It will be memorable.
It will change things.
Do you have a tribe?
