The Value of Teamwork

Do we live in a bootstrapping dog-eat-dog world where everyone is out for self ? Have we been so focused on Me, My, and I that the concepts of We, Us, and Team are distant memories? (I don’t think so)

I believe that teamwork makes the dream work. My grandmother always says “everybody needs somebody sometimes.” Living Life Abundantly is a team effort! We can all realize our dreams and goals at an accelerated rate by using a little teamwork.

We work in teams on our jobs. We work in groups in school to complete projects. In professional and educational settings we work with others to increase productivity to accomplish whatever the goal is quickly and efficiently.

Why not apply the same principle in our personal lives to achieve our dreams and goals?

How do you find a team? In your circle of family and friends identify five like minded goal oriented people. Express to each of them your desire to bring a group of like minded people together willing to help each other reach a goal. Not everyone will be interested but for those that are have a meeting of the minds to discuss goals, interests, strategies, team players and making the team official (who’s on board). This is a networking opportunity that will enable each of you to identify ways in which you can support each other. Your team’s objective is to achieve each team member’s goal. Choose your team wisely team captain and get a good coach. Take your team just as seriously as you would a team at your job or in school. Be honest with each other. Meet and communicate regularly. Support and encourage each other. Hold each other accountable. Celebrate success.

The Law of Enrichment:

All lasting wealth comes from enriching others in some way. The more you can train yourself to contribute value to the lives of others, the more you will earn and the more certain it is that you will become wealthy.—Brian Tracy

Two are better than one:

Because they have a good reward for their labor.
For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up.
Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.—Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

  9. My business can not succeed without my team. They’ve helped me so far. Teamwork is the most important thing to consider if you want to succeed in any activity.

  10. I find it is important to have a distinct head for team work to be effective. By this I mean someone who sets the vision, values and mission for a body. This guides an organization and allows the teams and individuals to be more independent. Once the aforementioned is done then a goal that is aligned with vision, values, and mission can be set and a team put together that is best suited to obtain that goal.
