Do you have a ‘dream team’?

Identifying your dream team and keeping these people around you is an important part of your toolkit and structure for success. Your dream team may include:

  • Role models
  • Mentors
  • Friends
  • Coaches
  • Personal trainers
  • Family
  • Colleagues
  • Your own mastermind group of like-minded people
  • An exercise buddy

You can also find motivation in different tools, such as:

  • Books and audiobooks
  • Magazines
  • Music
  • Podcasts
  • Public talks (such as TED talks)
  • Gratitude journals

Plan your dream team into your life. For example, when I go for a walk on my own I listen to an inspirational audiobook. I set up a monthly coffee date with my mastermind group, see my life coach once a month, and go walking with my fitness buddy once a week. Every night I alternate between writing a gratitude journal entry and listening to a meditation in bed.
