Surround yourself with people on the mission as you

          What is your mission?  Do you know? Have you discovered what drives you, what your passion is?  If you have not, make it your mission to figure out what it is.  It is important to know what your purpose is and what you want to leave to the world when you finally make your way to the next adventure.  Walking the path is more important than the destination so knowing what that path is will make your life much more fulfilling and joyous all around.  

          Once you have that mission, you need to ask yourself about the people you surround yourself with.  Do they feed your drive?  Are the friends you have healthy and nurturing for your mission?  If they are not, if the friends you have keep hampering your efforts to achieve your passion, then you need to move on.  We oftentimes have people in our lives who keep us down and enable us to stay in bad habits and we need to learn to not allow those people to influence us and hamper our growth.  

          Now, sometimes this can be a negative thing.  Sometimes when people are on the same mission they do some horrible things.  That is why it is important for us to find that mission before we enter that group setting.  Group and mob mentality can be used for the good of all humanity or for great harm. As an individual find what you believe in and what you want to achieve and then find the people who share that goal and go there together.  

          That is what i love about the New Jersey Renaissance Faire.  We are all on the same mission in the cast and have created a family that lifts up and supports each other and we are all on the same mission.  It is our goal and passion to create a space where people can smile and be themselves.  We create a world where our guests and patrons can escape the stresses of the day to day world.  It is a beautiful thing and truly my favorite part of the whole process is the rehearsal process.  We get to come together as a team, really as a family and work together at a common task.  It is powerful stuff.

          Find your passion everybody and a group of people who share that.  Work together to achieve it and you become a synergy, where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
