Creating A Dream Team

Dec 6, 2007
Businesses can not run themselves without employees. No matter how good a company it is, it still needs different people to accomplish different tasks. When you are trying to make your dreams come true, you need to approach your plans as you would a business by assembling the best team possible for your larger goals.

Help is Not a Bad Thing

While it's understandable that people want to do everything on their own, it's not necessarily the best plan of attack. When you're on your own, you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself. If you succeed, it's yours to celebrate, but when you make mistakes, you need to take responsibility for them too. This is not a bad situation, but it can become burdensome, especially when you have a really big dream you want to make come true. Here are the people you need to 'hire' for your dream team.

Someone Who Will Be Honest with You

Whether this is a close friend or family member or even your spouse, you need one person on your team that you can trust unconditionally to help you with your dreams. This is someone who has the right to tell you when you are doing something that may not be a good idea, for example. They are also someone you can turn to when you are trying to decide on a specific step. But you might not always get the answers that you want. What you will get in return is an unbiased opinion and another perspective on your dreams and your progress.

Someone Who Will Commiserate

Of course, just as you need someone to be honest with you, you also need someone that will simply tell you that everything will be alright and that you're not on the wrong track (even if you are). You need a 'rah rah' person that is going to be able to talk you down from the difficult times and that will help you stay positive, even when it seems like everything is headed in the wrong direction. A friend is a good choice for this team member, but a close sibling can also provide the necessary support and motivation too.

Someone Who Has Experience

It can help if you have a sort of mentor in this team of dream helpers. This would be a person who has already achieved or is in the process of achieving what you want. They can help you with specific questions you have along the way, plus provide you with access to resources that you might not have found on your own. This person will become a sort of partner in your progress and can act as someone else to bounce ideas off of.

Setting Up the Team

Instead of labeling these people in your head as people to turn to, let them in on your plans and what you need from them. Be specific about what you want from them and what you don't want from them in order to create the exact supportive environment you need. Keep them updated about what successes you have in order to show them just how helpful they are in your life.

This team can be even bigger than three people. Some of the most successful people have over fifty people they can turn to for questions and concerns about their current goals. But you will also want to know that more people are not necessarily better for this team. Choose the people that help keep you on track, as many as that might take.
