Your Tribe

Welcome to The Dish where Drew DeMaree & guests serve up a healthy dose of reality each week.  This blog is about keeping it real ~ real challenges, real distractions, real life getting in the way of, well…virtually everything.  How we view our realities depends on individual mindset, and we want to discuss WHY MINDSET MATTERS. 


Let’s talk about TRIBES because MINDSET IS A TEAM SPORT at the highest level.

Who is your tribe?  Think back to one of your happiest moments… who was there?  Now, think back to one of your saddest moments…who was there?  Most likely the answer to both questions is the same, and these individuals make up your tribe. Your tribe are the people who you want to “do life” with, and they have seen you at both your best and worst moments.  Those in your inner circle who make up your tribe barely flinch at your “ugly”, but also have a way of gently admonishing you when you behave badly.

Growth Mindset Tribes have

  • No color, age, judgment or comparison to each other
  • No motivation other than to support one another
  • Leadership in many forms

Tribes strengthen our mindset because they give us the faith, courage, hope and support we need when we feel weak. They keep us on course when we stray and lift us when we fall off the wagon.  Our tribes talk straight, no bs, no excuses and no judgment.  They love us for who we are.  There is no occasion too big or too small for our tribes, and no celebration is the same without them. The tribe vibe is always uplifting and reiterates strength in numbers.   

Nanea Hoffman’s quote “If you want to know who your tribe is, speak your truth. Then see who sticks around. Those are the people who get a spot in your blanket fort,” provides a foolproof method for tribe selection. Proving once again that MINDSET MATTERS and your tribe influences it greatly.
