I’m reading a book right now called Get Gutsy and I’m up to a part about building your dream team. Those who support your life and business.
Something clicked with me; to be on my dream team, you have to work with me, not against me. Logical, but hard to do.
To be on my dream team, you need to hear my crazy (and constant) ideas and go “awesome, how will we do that?” Instead of “no, you can’t do it that way”.
It sounds so simple, written out like that. So simple. And yet, it’s very, very rare for that to happen. What I think it boils down to is logical support. Realising that what works for them might now work for you and being able to support you to find what you really need to make your goals happen when they hear them.
This is not the same as unwavering, 100% support – it’s a hard to find balance of supporting crazy ideas through plans, and honesty when something really doesn’t suit you.
It’s hard to find the people who fit this grey area. I am so very lucky to have a couple of friends who are my dream team. They never blink at my ideas but also give me honest feedback on achieving my dreams. While still supporting me. If it sounds confusing…it is. Life is.
Who would be on your dream team?
