Need Help? Let Your Entourage Support You!

“They’ll never make it through the night.” That’s what the doctors proclaimed when we were born. As identical twins, born nearly three months premature and weighing just two pounds each, that seemed appropriate, right? They read our last rites and waited.

Nearly four decades later, they must still be waiting. Both of us weigh just slightly more than two pounds now (smirk), and we have had a lifetime to live with gratitude that we actually did “make it through the night.” The road was not an easy one, though, and we have had to come through much adversity.

But because we get the gift of actually waking up every day, we choose to leverage our relationship as twins to continually lift each other up, hold each other accountable, and celebrate with each other and all those around us.

When we write or speak from the stage, we call this being in each other’s “entourage.” The entourage is all about fiercely protecting someone’s dreams. It’s about lifting that person up, picking them up when they fall, celebrating when they fly, and above all, it is about gratefully enlisting the highest expectations for that person so they have the opportunity to live up to them.

But having a sibling relationship as close as ours is not required to have that entourage of support and love every day.It’s actually about knowing what kind of support and love we need and being willing to first give away what we most want.Continue reading at
