Do you ever feel like you’ve lost your tribe? There’s no reason to feel alone or isolated any longer. Thanks to a new trend on the internet, you can connect and create healthy relationships with people who share your passion and purpose anywhere in the world. Learn how to find your tribe and change your love life with some tips from a new book, Tribe, by Seth Godin.
What is a tribe?
Godin defines a tribe as a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea that inspires their passion.
Godin reminds us that human beings have a need to belong, 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.
How do you find or form a tribe?
Godin says anyone can find or form a tribe and lead it. All you need is you, your vision and your passion to share your message and assemble like-minded people who support your vision and each other.
Social networking sites like twitter, facebook and craigslist are the tools you use to find, form or lead a tribe.
How does a tribe choose a leader?
Leadership is a primary focus of Godin’s book. He says that nobody chooses you to be a leader; you choose yourself. How?
You tell a story about something important that needs changing. You can’t change it alone but by creating a movement — by leading and connecting people who yearn to commit to your group and to your vision for change.
Why is the tribal leader called a “heretic”?
When Godin calls the tribal leader a heretic, it’s not the old kind of heretic who was condemned or burned at the stake for challenging the status quo.
Godin’s “heretics” are engaged, passionate, and more powerful and happier than everyone else. They reach out to others and put their ideas on the line. And they have a tribe that they support (and supports them in turn).
How many people do you need to form a tribe?
It’s not a mass thing. Small tribes can form around small silos of interests, including work, hobbies, talents, dining, arts, politics and relationships.
According to Godin, to form a tribe you simply need to tell a story about something worth changing, and connect some people who yearn to be connected and be part of the change you seek.
