Gathering Your Soul Crew: The Power of Like-Minded Cheerleaders
One of the things that comes out consistently out of the Kickstart Your BIG BOLD BEAUTIFUL Life Programme is the connections that get made within the community of people who come together throughout the programme. It is always the right people together at the right time. Friendships with bonds as deep as families are created.
We call it, the creation of the Soul Crew.
The reasons having your soul crew alongside you for the ride of your life in the pursuit of a BIG, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL life, is immeasurable.
Your soul crew won't judge you for doing something outside of the ordinary. Close friends and family are great, but a lot of the time you are sifting through years of expectations and judgements about the way they think you should live your life, based on their own viewpoints.
They are also going on their own journey of self-discovery, so having the space to be vulnerable and supported is incredibly powerful.
And overall, the journey becomes infinitely richer when shared with like-minded souls.
In this post, discover the transformative impact of surrounding yourself with natural cheerleaders—those who uplift, inspire, and hold you accountable to your dreams.
Let's explore the significance of cultivating a supportive community on your path to happiness and success.
The Importance of Like-Minded Connections
Research consistently shows the profound influence of social connections on wellbeing and success. According to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, individuals with strong social support networks experience greater resilience in the face of challenges and report higher levels of life satisfaction.
The Essence of Your Soul Crew
Your soul crew isn't just a group of friends—it's a carefully curated circle of kindred spirits who resonate with your vision and values. They're the ones who lift you up when you're feeling down, celebrate your victories as if they were their own and hold you accountable to the promises you make to yourself. In essence, they're your natural cheerleaders and their presence in your life is invaluable.
Seek Natural Cheerleaders: Who Lifts Your Soul?
Identifying and nurturing relationships with natural cheerleaders is essential for personal growth and fulfillment. Studies have found that surrounding yourself with positive, supportive individuals can boost self-esteem, increase motivation and enhance overall happiness.
Take a moment to reflect on the individuals in your life who light up your soul when you're with them. Who brings out the best in you and encourages you to reach for your BIG BOLD BEAUTIFUL life? Who will encourage and support you when you worry others might judge you? These are your natural cheerleaders—the ones who see your potential even when you can't and who never hesitate to shower you with love and support.
Accountability Partners: Who Holds You Accountable?
Accountability is the secret sauce that turns dreams into reality. Seek out accountability partners within your soul crew—those who will lovingly hold you to your word and keep you on track towards your goals. Conscious accountability is a powerful tool for goal achievement. Research conducted by the American Society of Training and Development revealed that people are 65% more likely to meet a goal after committing to someone else. By partnering with accountability buddies, individuals can increase their commitment and follow-through on their aspirations.
Cultivate a Culture of Success and Happiness
Creating a culture of success and happiness within your community fosters an environment where everyone can thrive. Studies in positive psychology from Harvard University have demonstrated that happiness is contagious, spreading through social networks and positively influencing the wellbeing of those around you. By surrounding yourself with individuals who share your values and aspirations, you amplify your potential for success and fulfilment.
Gathering Your Soul Crew
As you reflect on the power of your soul crew, remember that these are the people who will stand by your side through thick and thin, cheering you on every step of the way. Nurture these relationships, cherish the moments you share and know that with your soul crew by your side, there's no dream too BIG or BOLD and no challenge too daunting.
Together, you'll journey towards a BIG, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL life filled with love, laughter and endless possibilities.
