As a race we have constantly been on a mission to make it to the top. Too often do we live in poverty with only dreams of making it out. Those of us that see our dreams turning into reality are on a mission to get to the top alone. Isn't it crazy how our race differs from the rest?
Our mission this year is to figure out how to put our heads together and help each other become successful. This year is about combining talents and making our journey a much easier one. If you look around you at some of the other races, you will see them working together to make their way in this crazy country.
I don't know about you, but I have a ton of talented friends and we can't wait to see the success that comes from us working together to get to the top. If you don't know how to turn the "I" attitude into "We", here it goes:
Example 1: On the Come up Together
If you are an up-and-coming artist then you need a team. You need a manager, publicist, lawyer, stylist...just to name a few.
Look no further than your immediate circle if you have any friends that are trying to grow in these fields. Each day help each other become better. If you do not have a circle of friends that you can reach out to...maybe you need to extend your circle and reach out in a new direction.
Result: You probably have a team of people that want to see each other grow. You have a team that probably has your best interest at heart. You also have maximized on the number of people that are going to make it to the top. Gooooo hard together...its much easier than doing it alone.
Example 2: Already at the Top
We all heard the saying, "I put my niggas on...my niggas put they niggas on"
Let's say you are Ludacris and you need a personal chef. You have a homie that loves to cook all of the time. Send him to culinary school and make him your personal chef! :)
Result: You don't have to leave everybody behind. Once you bring someone else up with you...they can reach back also.
The point is that we all must work together to get to where we want to be. If you want success...model the examples around you. If everyone else works together, we think that we can do it alone? What do we have some magic superpowers that makes us different? Clearly we do not, because it isn't working for us.
Let's take the "I" attitude and turn it into "We".
Below give an example of how you have worked with someone to become more successful?
