You know you can’t do whatever you want to achieve totally on your own right? Who do you have in your corner to help you? Would you rate them ‘A’ grade players? Here’s why you must surround yourself with the very best.
You create an atmosphere of success: Because you’ll have people who know how to create success and are open to sharing their tips and knowledge to help you. With such top-notch know-how around you, you have ongoing access to mentorship and honest evaluation.
You don’t have to be expert at everything: It’s not feasible to be excellent in everything. There are brilliant people you can surround yourself with to enhance what you are very good at.
You have a team that cares to catch you when you fall: Don’t be afraid to fail. Learn your lessons quickly instead of trying to make something work when it’s not working. A series of small fails are better than having to deal with one big crushing one. Test you ideas early to learn any lessons quickly.
You have a mirror to reflect how to be an ‘A’ player too: When you have top notch people around you, you have the right standard against which to reflect your own development and to learn from the best. You focus on possibility and step away from mediocrity.
Now take action: Identify 3 top notch people to get on your team.
