Proverbs 24:6 After all, with the right strategy you can wage war,
and with many advisers there is victory.
Surrounding yourself with good people is one of many ways to create peace in your life. When you choose like-minded friends and companions you’re empowering yourself with the gift of “More”! More creativity, more spirituality, more support, more love and more possibilities are just a few of the benefits. There is power in unity but you have to be connected with the right people. As the word says, with the right strategy you can wage war and with many advisers there is victory.
I’ve created a short list of tips that will help you to build a tribe filled with friends who are necessary for your journey through life:
- Connect with people who share similar interests as you. Try volunteering at a local non-profit or community event to find people who care about some of the same things that are important to you.
- Join a group or organization such as a local book club or bible study group. Conversations about spirituality are a great way to connect with like-minded people.
- Get out of the house more! Make it your business to join a gym, take a class or attend local social events to connect with others.
Let’s face it, life is not meant to be lived alone! There is success, peace and power in numbers!
The picture above was taking at the Carolinas Breast House in Charlotte, NC back in December of 2015. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I knew that I had to connect with people who understood how I felt and those who were just as determined to live and beat the disease as I was. Pictured are just a few of the people that I have had the privilege of connecting with along my journey.
There is strength in numbers.
After you’ve finished reading the blog post, check out today’s podcast. I interview a dear friend of mine, Rashida Gittens. Rashida is a domestic abuse survivor and she credits her faith and her support system for helping her to find and realize her self-worth.
I invite you to take a listen as two friends hold a candid conversation about the power of being connected to the right people.
Find Peace and Be Well!
