“We are the sum of the choices that we make.”
I spend a lot of time growing the people that work for me. I am lucky enough to be in a position that allows me to touch people’s lives and help them become who they want to become, whilst bringing added value to the company we all work for.
Sometimes I have to divert my eyes whilst holding my breath, watching someone head for disaster as they refuse to be helped. Other times I find diamonds in the rough, waiting to soak up the knowledge and experience which surrounds them, forging a path for growth.
What I am trying to say is the following: do not get lost in your own misplaced egoistical white noise. Asking or using help is nothing to be ashamed of, in the contrary it shows that you would do anything to achieve what you want. We only grow stronger by making smart decisions.
I won’t sit here and pretend that I have all the answers or that I have always made the right decisions, however I do believe that even though I sometimes entered paths that were too thorny for me, I managed to find my way forward thanks to having surrounded myself with people who want to see me succeed as much as I want to. You are only as strong as the team you are a part of.
