For the greater good

The easiest thing to do in life that comes naturally is being selfish. As human beings we know how to be self absorbed, we sometimes focus on ourselves to the detriment of those around us. It’s natural to be selfish, it’s a human behaviour we basically acquire in our DNA before we can even take in our first gasp of air.

For those of us who love winning, who know that while there is no “I” in team, without “I”, whoever it represents, the team is nit as strong as it should be. The power of an individual is so underrated and because it is, teams lose their efficiency.
Knowing the strengths, weakenesses and challenging areas for you team members helps you laverage maximum efficiency out of the team. We should be students of each other when on a team so we can become a very effective team.

Do not get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with looking after ones self, there is nothing wrong with looking after your own interests but a time should come when you care more for other people than yourself. The best thing to do in a team setting is being able to help other people better themselves. Giving yourself to be part of a team and looking out for the team members helps you build your own character and actually makes you feel happy and get over your own shortcomings.

Truth be told, strength without wisdom is as dangerous as weakness with arrogance. For the good of the team you have to be prepared become a pillar for the weaked members so that their weakness does not become the undoing of a team. Be willing to step in and help where needed, be a team player for the good of the team. A team is as strong az its weakest link so for the good of the team, get involved.

My mentor told me that the best way to develop my character is to first pray for others in need and once done I should then look to find who needs my help at that moment. What an exercise in patience and love, it is not as easy as it sounds to just get up and pray for someone and pick up the phone to offer help to anyone in need. That human instinct I talked about earlier, not easy to look after others ahead of self.

In this journey called life, it is amazing how doing something for other people makes one feel better about themself, it’s amazing. I dare you, next time you have an opportunity to help, do it. After you have helped someone I can guarantee that you will feel good for helping them and then you will notice that you have a renewed strength to face your own challenges. Helping other people is part of giving yourself for the better of the team, it really is an answer to those you help but also to your own situation.
