Today’s post is about YOUR SQUAD! Let’s use Beyonce as a case study, she is the Damsel who seems to have it ALL. But have you noticed the women around her HAVE IT ALL TOO. Momma Tina, Solange, Michelle, Kelly, even Blu is a Dominating Damsel in the making. I mean, Queen Bey is surrounded by women who are killing it; not to mention she’s married to a man who can hold his own too!
Although Beyonce caught some slack for ditching her girl group at the top of their game. It’s clear she knows: your SQUAD is crucial in reaching your dreams.
It is nearly impossible to reach your goals without having positive people in your life. One of the secrets about making it to the top or manifesting your idea of success is, your squad. How can you accomplish much without having at least one person to encourage, inspire, push, coach, finance or teach you?! I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had before I had the courage to finally hit publish on my first blog post.
3 Key Players You Need In Your Squad:
1. A Mother: Someone who literally thinks you piss glitter! (YES! Yes mom I did use a kids cuss word and publish it on the internet for the world to see!) This person is your number 1 fan! In their eyes you can do no wrong. They encourage you and believe you can do anything you set your mind to. This person sees infinite possibilities in you despite your countless failures. He or she loves you through your flaws and knows you personally. Bey’s Mother Tina gives us ALL LIFE!
2. A Chuckie: If you are the Tommy of your team, essentially the leader, then you need a friend who is there to say: “I don’t know; maybe this such a good idea.” Some people see this person’s statement as negative; but it actually makes you RE-THINK your idea and justify it. Are you an ‘act now, learn later’ type of person like myself? Do you get an idea and want to just run with it full steam? If so, your Chuckie is instrumental to your success because they are there to reel you back in when get lost in The Land of Possibilities or distracted by the next shiny goal. Bey’s Chuckie: Kelly Rolland
3. A Co-Pilot: Your co-pilot is your mirror. She will reflect your enthusiasm and not only buy into but also sew into your vision. You can rely on this person to take a risk with you and you can depend on them to run the show in the event of your absence. Bey’s Co-Pilot: Her Hubby Jay-Z.
Do an inventory of your team and determine if you have these 3 key players. Are there any people on your team who are not serving a purpose?
