The difference between success and failure is a great team.
No man is an island and that’s a fact. Every successful person, everyone who has achieved any goal in life whether big or small has done so with the support of others.
This is especially true for business owners and professionals in high organisational levels. The best way to build a company with great success and scale is to build a great team.
Of course, I’m not saying there are certain things you can’t do alone. But there are a lot more things you can do better with your team. And when I say team, I don’t mean just your professional team or your sub-ordinates at work. Your team members could comprise of your loyal driver who always comes to work on time, your dependable wife/husband who is always there with great advice, your domestic staff who relieves you of the household chores or your mother who is always there to help out with the kids. It could also be your friend who lets you borrow her car whenever you are in need, your sales girl at your shop who takes care of business in your absence….
For those who try to tough it out alone, it can be a difficult battle. Everyone needs someone to help out with tasks you cannot do for yourself. Delegating work to others or giving someone else a responsibility does not mean you are not capable enough to handle it, but means you have reached a point where you have to focus your attention on other bigger things.
Many times I have tried to start projects but I’m limited because I don’t have a team for that particular project. Other times, I have had the zeal to go forward with new projects because I have competent people on my team who help in bringing them to reality.
Team work is a give or take situation. Sometimes, you could be the one on other people’s team, helping them achieve their dreams and at other times, you could be the one bringing them together for your ideas. Whatever side you are on, carry out your responsibilities with zeal.
My wish for you today is that you find competent people who will make your dreams come true just like you help others bring their dreams to life?
Appreciate someone today. Who is that important person who helps you out at home or at work in making your life balanced? Remember, no one’s input is too little.
