I’m starting my new Financial Stress Reduction teleclasses this week! It’s always so much fun to gather a new Team of Dolphins who want to explore new horizons, change their perspective, change their money, have more fun and challenge the “its” in their lives.
Teams are so important. We will form many during our journey on Planet Earth. One of my favorite stories from “The Wealthy Spirit” is about teams in “The Star Trek Experience”. (I blog these stories daily at www.chellie.com/the-wealthy-spirit-blog along with additional notes. Click on the link and join us!)
The Star Trek Experience – from “The Wealthy Spirit”
“A snowflake is one of Nature’s most fragile things, but look what they can do if they stick together.”—Unknown
My friend, Beca Lewis, in her workshop, The Shift, told a story about Star Trek. She said that in this television series, every week a team of people on a space ship goes exploring. They know their mission: “To go where no one has gone before.” They know how they are going: “Boldly.” Every week, they encounter an “it.” This is something that appears to be a threat or at least a dangerous mystery.
But there is a difference in the behavior of the crew on Star Trek and most people. They have a solid team and support one another. No one ever says, “How did you make this happen, you idiot?” And no one ever says, “How did I make this happen? I’m such an idiot!”
There is only rational discussion of how to handle the threat. They engage in the process of looking for solutions instead of searching for someone to blame. The solutions are found each week by the group acting as a team, and the decisions are all based on a personal code of ethics and morality.
And no one ever says, “We better not explore any more. Remember what happened last week!”
I quite enjoyed this story. Maybe that’s what I like so much about the Star Trek series—the friendship and support of the team players. Whatever challenges they face each week, you know that they will stand and face them together. They are all dolphins.
Life is like a Star Trek mission. We are all exploring and we are all traveling with a team. We have a choice whether to be critical or supportive. What would you like to receive from your team? Be the first to give them that.
