No man is an island. Not sure who coined this phrase, but it is the truth. We were not created to exist alone. We were not created to live in a vacuum where ideas are not exchanged. I think this a bit more easy for some to grasp than others. Unfortunately, the scars from past relationships and failed friendships leave many with an invisible fence. Sometimes the gaps in our development is because of an unhealthy process of relationship growth.
One of the lessons learned from my first two books read this year is an undeniable need for healthy relationships. These become the source of strength from which we draw the courage to hold and on continue to push forward. Think about it for a moment, we have what we have (good or bad) only with the involvement of someone else. Our clothes, food, vehicles, thoughts conceived, etc- because of someone else. It is foolish to think we can survive on our own. It is not possible.
This past Thursday night my entrepreneur class began. I did a quick video about it here. I look forward to what comes out of it. I like the fact that our class facilitator placed us in accountability groups to stay in contact with each other through out the process of the course. There were many things I was expecting out this class. Honestly, a group that I can turn to for support and advice was not one of them. I look forward to the discovery about their endeavors and dreams. Not too mention, to be able to share my entrepreneur dreams too.
We must be intentional about creating, developing, and maintaining healthy relationships. We can grow further and faster together. The quicker we learn this, the closer we are to our dream materialized.
