Why Study This Mantra...

You will learn how to build, foster, and strengthen a great social network.
"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
– Marcel Proust


Humans are social creatures. There is a strong correlation between having a strong tribe and your mental and physical well being.

Not only that, but a great group of friends can encourage you to avoid unhealthy lifestyle habits, provide you with a sounding board for all of life's concerns, encourage you when you need it most, and join you in pursuing common interests.

Having a strong social network means both creating new relationships and maintaining old ones. This month, you'll come up with and practice some great methods for both.

The Practices

Today's affirmation: "I will find and take opportunities to build my tribe."

Daily Practices

Growing My Tribe

  • I will find opportunities to go out into the world and meet people
  • When I do, I will center around a single goal: to find out one unique thing about them to decide if they’re somebody I might want to hang out with.
  • I will turn strangers into friends by taking the next step

Strengthening My Tribe

  • I will say yes when my friends invite me to things
  • I will take time out to think of my friends and reach out to them
  • I will set up events and nights out with my friends
  • I will enact the results I came up with in my Tribe Brainstorm

Note: Does your tribe include people who resemble WHO YOU WANT TO BE? The people around you matter! Be around people who inspire you. Who's around you?

Guided Journaling

Tribe Brainstorm

As I remove my mantra tonight, I will brainstorm new ways I could grow and strengthen my tribe. I will ask myself questions like:

  • Where could I go where I would have fun, regardless if I met anyone?
  • Where would the types of people I’m looking for spend their free time?
  • What fun activities would I love to do with all of my friends?
  • Who's drifting away from my tribe that I'd like to keep in? How can I pull them back in?
