We are all achievers. We all work towards our life goals. Some aim for more wealth, others their career, while some opt for a simple but harmonious personal life.
When we attain our goals, often times, we give ourselves a pat on the back and say “I am so good.” We feel a sense of fulfillment in getting where we want to go. It is good to give ourselves credit whenever we achieve success, but let us not forget that we were able to get to the status we aimed for, not solely from our own doing, but with the help of the people around us. It is impossible for us to reach full capacity, unless we engage other people.
When everyone is contributing and putting ideas on the table, there is more meaning in our capacity to carry out success. It is a concerted effort of everyone. If we want to reach our full capacity, we need to include others. What one person can do, ten people can do better.
As an inspirational speaker, I can give credit to myself for all the success I achieved. I am the only one speaking on the podium, who else do I credit it to?
My success is not all mine, you are all part of it. The inspiration you get from me, is based on the people I interact with. If it were not for the people around me, I would not know the real meaning of loving or caring or helping others. I inspire you because you inspire me. I am able to reach my full capacity because you opened my eyes and my heart and enabled me to live my life’s purpose.
Let us help bring out the best in each and every one of us. Let us work together to bring each other up and enable everyone to reach their full capacity and live a meaningful life.
“When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.” — William Arthur Ward
