Push through and level up. When you hear those words, they are usually coming from a goalfriend. Yes, that one sista-friend who knows you and believes that you have more to offer the world than even you may realize. Where would we be without that special sista in our lives? We don’t want to know!
Life will throw curveballs at you. Whether you’re going through something personal, or just the reality of having to “adult”. You can sometimes feel like it’s you against the world. Well, Honey, sometimes it is. That’s facts. But, despite the stressors and tests, and all that comes with everything, you know deep down that you have to make it “do what it do”. When you look around, and need a bit of reassurance, who do you go to? It’s gonna be your goalfriend, no doubt.
In case you don’t have one, or are trying to figure out the role that a goalfriend would have in your life, we put together a few reasons why EVERY WOMAN needs a goalfriend. After reading this, we are sure that you will become a believer…and possibly, a goalfriend for another sista in need.
A Goalfriend Knows Your Potential
We can forget our many victories. It’s natural and it can happen. But, your goalfriend…she will not forget. She will be the best, most amazing recordkeeper of your many talents and accomplishments. Your goalfriend won’t just look at the now. She’s looking further up the road and she knows that you have what it takes to be successful.
A Goalfriend Helps You Plan
That goalfriend…she will dream right with you. But, better than just dreaming, a goalfriend is in the trenches and tries her best to support you along the way. She will offer sound advice and really work with you to get your plan together. Your vision coming to fruition means as much to her as it does to you!
A Goalfriend Believes In You
You will doubt yourself. But, your goalfriend will be right there…hyping you back up. She’s your cheerleader, your coach, and your hinchman if she has to show up and show out. But, beyond all of that, she is there for you because she believes in you. You can expect your goalfriend to let you know that ain’t nobody got no time for underestimating themselves and questioning their ability. She believes in you wholeheartedly. No judgement, no hating, no envying…she is TEAM YOU all the way.
A Goalfriend Keeps You Accountable
Now, a time might come when you slack off a little bit. Oh, no. Your goalfriend is not going for that…not one little bit. If she’s in it, you GON be in it, too. She’s your ride or die, but she won’t let you go down without a fight. So, don’t expect her to just sit back and let you slip. She is not for it, and she will let you know! You have goals to make happen and your goalfriend will keep you on track and accountable. Some of the overzealous goalfriends might make things a little uncomfortable for you if you don’t do what you need to do. She doesn’t mean you any harm. Goalfriends love you…but, letting things fall apart..nope, she doesn’t love that.
A Goalfriend Straightens Your Crown Without Telling Others
Some things that you go through while you’re trying to level up will be hard and may cause you to waver a little bit. You might get a bit tired and even off your A-game trying to get through the toughest times as you work toward your goals. Your goalfriend knows all about you and she has your back. She’s got you when you feel like you don’t even have yourself!
A real goalfriend will look you over, help you dust yourself off, and she will straighten your crown without even saying that she did. Her goal is for you to be successful and to create a friendship and sisterhood that will allow you to be there when she needs you. But, she ain’t sharing your worst with anybody. Nope…that’s between you and her.
So, now you know why you need a goalfriend. They are an asset to you and an essential part of your tribe. If you have a good goalfriend, thank her and let her know how much you appreciate all that she does. If you don’t have one, you better get you one because you WILL need her!
