You Can’t Succeed Alone Because That is Not Success

You Can’t Succeed Alone Because That is Not Success
Let us suppose for just a moment that you could get to the mountain top of success all byyourself. You have worked very hard and finally you have made it. You have reached thepeak. Your success is secure. You have won the trophy. Something is not right though. It istoo quiet. Where is all the clapping? Where are all the cheers? You look around and discoverthat you are all alone. Where is everybody? Then you remember you succeeded by yourself. All of a sudden your joy turns to sorrow. Your head falls, your shoulders slump. It wasn’tsupposed to be like this. This was supposed to be the best day of your life. As a tear rollsdown your face, you throw the trophy off the mountaintop. You watch it descend to thevalley. When it impacts it breaks into a thousand pieces just like your spirit.My friend, what fun would success be without people to share it with? We need people andthey need us. The great wonderful fact is that we can’t reach the mountaintop of success allby ourselves. Only with people will we be truly successful. We help hem succeed and theyhelp us. It is a team effort. It was Jim Rohn who said, “You cannot succeed by yourself. It’shard to find a rich hermit.”We don’t want to be rich hermits. We want to be build rich teams. Rich in relationships, richin money, rich in skills, and rich in faith. When you have accomplished that, that is whenyou know you are a success.
