If you’ve been following VioDy for any stretch of time, and especially if you’ve listened to Kasey on his Live Feeds, you have heard about how important the network, the Tribe is. In both VioDy and in life, Tribe is a requirement.
Much has been written about the benefits of having and belonging to a tribe, help, motivation, support, and it can go as deep as you want to take. I know with my Tribe, it goes as deep as it can get. But not much has been written about what is required to be a good, strong member of a tribe. All of those benefits come from somewhere. And they come from the members of the tribe.
So, what does it take to have a good tribe?
Honesty, integrity, courage, strength(internal & external), whatever skills you bring to it, empathy, and caring.
The most important of these is the first three listed. Without these, you cannot help your people reach and keep their goals. Just like Kasey and his workout pics and posts, it is a form of accountability to us, his tribe. And we need to care about him enough to hold him to it. We need to care about both the other person, and our tribe, to hold them to the higher standards we have for our group. We need the integrity and courage to tell one when he is fucking up, and the empathy and care to help him come back to right.
If our tribes are intended for big things, they must have standards, and the people involved must all hold each other accountable. You don’t shine on things like cheating on a spouse, as that displays dishonesty, you don’t encourage violating the moral code. But you help others make it right, and care about your fellow members. It’s a balancing act, and one we, as members of an active and growing tribe, must constantly work at keeping true to.
