Being authentic will attract your tribe. How to find the right relationships.

Updated: Jul 30, 2023



First things first... Why should you care?

Our emotional state dictates the quality of our life. The 30 Days of Positivity Challenge is a daily personal challenge designed to condition the mind and body to maintain a positive emotional state. Our mindset contributes to 80% of our success. So, this challenge forces you to reprogram your mindset for success. When we're in a good mood and have a positive mindset, the probability of us being more productive, having better relationships, and making more money goes up. On the other hand, when we're in a bad mood and have a negative mindset, the opposite tends to occur.

Imagine living in a mansion but you're always upset, stressed, anxious, or sad. On the other hand, imagine living in a townhouse but you're always peaceful and happy. Your quality of life has everything to do with how you feel about yourself and the world around you. Your focus becomes your future. So, focus on nurturing a positive emotional state. Our feelings give us clues about the state of our emotions and environment, and tell us if we're progressing in the right direction. Progress equals growth. This challenge helps you to grow positive feelings to attract positive people and things into your life.

Let's get started with today's challenge!

Let's Get To The Point

Authenticity is at the core of creating the right relationships. Some people have many friends but not the right relationships. Some people want more friends but struggle with maintaining friendships because they're not being authentic. In business, some people create unsustainable partnerships with other companies because they haven't considered whether their values align. Being who you are is the best way to attract the people that are meant to be in your life. The people who are meant to be in your life will unconditionally appreciate who you are. Examine the relationships in your life. Your challenge today is to answer this question: What values do you share with the people closest to you?

Donnie Thomas:

I'm here with one of my best friends, and we were talking about friendship as a concept. And there was a group of friends that we were discussing, and one of the friends is a little bit more reserved than some of the other friends. And so, the friends that are less reserved weren't really going in, so to speak, because they were trying to be sensitive to the other person, which I truly respect because when you have emotional intelligence you definitely ensure that... Sorry, I had to clear the camera off. You definitely ensure that you are managing your actions so that you don't create an environment of angst and disruption and that intention.

Donnie Thomas:

And so, one of the things that I mentioned is that, when you are not your full self with someone that you're trying to develop a true connection and friendship with, you do that person a disservice because you don't allow them the opportunity to tap into who you are as an individual, and to identify whether or not you are somebody they want to be a part of their tribe and vice versa, because you're putting up a false view of you. And we all have different faces of ourselves that we choose to show to the world and to our family and to our friends and to certain subsets of friends. However, when you're in a close-knit friend circle or a group of friends that are close, I believe that you do a disservice to you and the other person when you don't show them fully who you are. So, be you. And the people that are attracted to the fullness of who you are will stick. The ones that are not, will not. And that's okay. Peace.
