Find Your Tribe

Find Your Tribe


It’s been said that you become the average of the five people you spend the most time with.


Seth Godin says, “One of the most powerful of our survival mechanisms is to be part of a tribe, to contribute to (and take from) a group of like-minded people. We are drawn to leaders and to their ideas, and we can’t resist the rush of belonging and the thrill of the new.”


There were a few weeks early in the COVID-19 quarantine when I was nervous about what would happen to BFP if this continued. Members were dropping—fast!


Peloton stock was skyrocketing; Beachbody and other on-demand programs were all the rage. People were prepping their garages with fitness equipment as if gyms would be a thing of the past. Even our Zoom classes were hitting 20-plus people per class.


Then another month came and went. And another.


While we’re not out of this pandemic yet, people are ready to return. Many small gyms, the ones that have limited members and can control who’s coming in their facilities were starting to grow again. People were looking to be around “their” people again, whether it’s their book club, a church, or the gym.


There’s a difference when you’re there in person. The buzz of energy. The sounds of controlled chaos. Your friends pushing you when you thought you couldn’t run faster or couldn’t do another rep. But then you did.


We missed the smiles that have been masked for months.


The world outside was seemingly falling apart, but in here, you miss the camaraderie of that tribe of people pulling for you to succeed. Workouts at 5 a.m. don’t seem nearly as early when surrounded by your tribe. All the feels are not the same when you ssaw your people through a computer screen.


There’s something incredibly special about a group of people that suffer and sweat together.


Tribes of all kinds are important because:

-Life will have its difficult times. You will fail. You will make mistakes. You’ll want the support of a tribe.

-There will be things that you don’t want to do (but you need to do). You’re going to need people to believe in you more than you believe in yourself at those moments.

-There are people that care about what you have to say. You need to find them.


Go find yours.
