Sometimes, it seems that as years pass and technology brings us closer together, we seem to simultaneously move farther apart. Human connection is simply not necessary when every need can be satisfied with the press of a button. And, with increased connectivity and access to information, the pace of society quickens, expectations increase, and we may be left even more confused, stressed, and uncertain than ever before.
Since we are in the business of self-care, we get curious about the opportunities there are that can help sort out the jumble of our modern world, improve lives, and foster growth and connection. Membership communities are one of them.
Membership communities are online or offline groups of people who share a common interest or goal. And they’re becoming increasingly popular, for good reason. They provide valuable resources that don’t exist elsewhere. They give members a sense of belonging through a supportive network that has their back. They expose their members to numerous growth opportunities, including courses, workshops, and networking events. But what is perhaps most valuable about membership communities is their unique ability to help individuals commit to achieving their goals.
By being part of a membership community, you immediately commit to growing—achieving what you set out to do, no matter the obstacles in the way. Whether it’s being kinder to yourself or growing your business, memberships offer the one thing that little else can—a community dedicated to the goal you have in mind.
Meaningful connection is one of the most powerful catalysts to commitment. It fosters accountability, sparks inspiration, and keeps you motivated. It lifts you up when you’re feeling overwhelmed, and allows you to help others on a similar journey. After all, the motor that keeps the wheels of the world turning is not solitude—its collaboration, interaction, and community.
If there’s a new skill you’d like to master, a business you’d like to build, or any other transformative journey you’d like to embark on, do some searching to find a membership community that can support you.
