Last week I accidentally caught the ESPY awards.
Yes, accidentally because I already don't watch award shows, let alone any that deal with sports.
However, I caught snippets of this show during two points where the award recipients were not “players” but they showcased inspirational qualities that proved hard times is best survived with people in your corner helping you through.
One of those recipients was Retired Army Command Sergeant Major Gretchen Evans, founder of Team UNBROKEN, and her story was not only inspirational but her message hit hard on how we can fight to live our lives the way we want and not allow bad circumstances to steal them from us.
Part of her success she credited her Rope Team. I call these people my Village. Others subscribe the name Tribe. All of them focus on the foundational principle that when one falls, the rest pull them up so we all can continue our journeys together.
The concept of the Rope Team also hit different because it seems centered (at least from how Retired Army Command Sergeant Major Gretchen Evans explained how she used it based on her military experience) on being tied to a group of people so they knew they were there to be a deliberate, active support system.
Many folks have turned to team-building activities as a way to help them cope with their feelings and it is one of the most popular types of team-building. With the right attitude and hard work, you can build a team that is capable of extraordinary things.
What is a Rope Team?
The term seems to have originated and is normally used in sports, particularly outdoor/adventure sports. It's a group of people who work together to accomplish a common goal. It is often used in sports and outdoor activities, but it can be used in any situation where teamwork is necessary.
