You don’t have to do it on your own. In fact, it’s better when you involve others.
Your mission is positive. That means it’s larger than yourself. However, it can be easier to imagine ourselves working solo for the benefit of others than imagining ourselves as part of a positive team or community.
Impact becomes multiplied when many people push for it. To maximize your impact, you will have to create a community.
The size, purpose, and makeup of this community will vary based on your goals, but the value of community cannot be understated. Not only do we feel better when connected to others, it is necessary to connect with others to produce the best ideas and create the most good. It’s a common mistake to want to do it all on your own.
But don’t limit your horizons just for the imaginary glamour of being the lone wolf. All movements and all significant improvements to people’s lives require a community of change-makers.
If you’re a writer, this can mean finding a community to share work with, all of you benefiting from feedback and creative openness. If you’re a fitness coach, this can mean finding a community that shares your goals and can help you develop a more comprehensive life success coaching structure.
Whatever your industry, sharing your work and ideas with the right people can help you be worlds better than you could ever be on your own.
We all need help from time to time. Finding your collaborative community means being humble and accepting your weaknesses while also acknowledging and sharing your strengths.
And if the community doesn’t exist yet, create it! None of us can thrive completely on our own. No person is an island. We’re social creatures that crave community. Help fulfill your life purpose by building power with the right people that share your goals and want you to succeed.
