No individual has sufficient experience, education, natural ability and knowledge to ensure the accumulation of a great fortune without the cooperation of other people.
The above quote is an excerpt from Napoleon Hill’s book, ‘Think And Grow Rich.
In my opinion, I think he meant we need people, if we want to make it big in life.
No man is an island.
We need family, friends, acquaintances, neighbors and total strangers to make it.
If you’ve got a product or service you offer, will you consume it yourself? ( Hell nah)
You need people to patronize you, right?
You need to leverage on good networking and cultivating meaningful relationships with people – at different levels.
You need people to market you.
You need people that’d recommend, defend or vouch for you.
You can’t be everything at the same time.
As much as you need people, you jus gats be careful with the choice of people you associate with, because – Wisdom is profitable to direct. 😉
If you learn to leverage on people’s skills and strengths ….. and collaborate with other people to form a valuable bond – you’d almost be limitless,
They’d be able to put you on track when you’re going off target or feeling low – They’d energize you and boost your morale till you reach your highest potentials.
Yeah, you need people to make it, and, people need you to make it too – it’s a continuous cycle of life.
Symbiotic partnership is bae you know. 🥰
Since you can’t give what you don’t have…
You’ve got to develop yourself and become valuable too. Be high on personal development everyday- in fact…make it a lifestyle.
You don’t wantu be a leech that only takes (value, things) from people people – without giving back anything in return.
Don’t be a leech, and don’t associate with leeches.
Reciprocity makes the world go round.
If someone is giving you value, learn to return the favor in your own way… without them asking.
That’s a sure way to build and nurture a bond that’d last for a lifetime, because….
Both parties are enhancing eachother lives, and helping eachother grow in diverse ways.
That’s the best Relationship/Friendship Goals – Make each other better 💯!
before you get me wrong…
The fact that you need people doesn’t mean everyone should have access to your life.
Nah, far from that.
Learn to categorize people with boundaries.
Place people in their suitable positions – friends, family, and acquaintances.
Know the people with high priority in your life, and those with low priority.
You’re the boss of your life – learn to promote, demote or fire people in your life accordingly. 😉
Not everyone that laughs with you or smile at you is your friend.
One of the best things you can do for yourself today is to know how to separate your friends from your acquaintances.
Many people don’t even know the difference.
Be careful of the people you make friends with- cos they can either make or mar You.
Don’t forget, you need people, and people need you too!
