Are you a supportive friend? Do you want to see and be a part of your friend’s successes in life? How do you support your friends? If you were hesitant when answering any of these questions this message is for you. In the previous post, How to Attract Supportive Friends we explore what you should do – be who you want to attract; communicate and connect; and positive vibes. These are all things that require time and effort on your part, but if you don’t have the “mindset of We” then doing all of the things previously mentioned means nothing. If you don’t have the “mindset of We” you will be that temporary supportive “friend” secretly jealous of your friend’s success and waiting for his/her downfall to make you feel better about yourself. You know, the girl that comes to your event acting like she’s showing support because she paid for a ticket, but while there she’s spreading all kinds of negative vibes as she complains about everything.
You may be asking, what in the world is a “mindset of We?”
We the best! Who? WE! (DJ Khaled voice)….LOL
A “mindset of We” needs to believe in these statements
- I’m your friend and I want to see you actualize your goals and dreams
- I want to be an active participant in your present and future success
- Let’s get this money together
- I will give you constructive criticism when needed in a loving manner (i.e. privately)
- My support of you is not due to ulterior motives or because I can gain something from supporting you
- I’m not just about my own goals and myself
- If I know someone that can be of assistance to you, I will connect you to him/her
- Whatever you don’t know that I have knowledge of, I will share it with you
- We’re both going to make it to the TOP
- We’re in it, to win it
- We got this
- We’re doing it
Simply put the “mindset of We” is the frame of mind someone has that allows her to be great for herself, but also great for the people around her that she loves and care about. The “mindset of We” is like the no friend left behind kind of thinking where we’re all pushing, encouraging, and challenging each other to actualize our goals and dreams and be a better version of ourselves. A “mindset of We” is sincere and has many benefits such as attracting supportive friends and receiving unmerited blessings upon blessings.
