Success is the sum of all of your efforts.
No matter how good you are by yourself,
You can achieve greater success with a team.
A team will always outperform any individual because of synergy.
Having more people, perspectives and creativity working on the same project will yield a superior result. It is the benefit of more people’s vision and perspective.
Who is on your team?
Do you consciously create teams and teamwork around you?
Do you acknowledge, recognize and appreciate your teammates and their contribution to your success? Do you make it fun and worthwhile for people to be on your team?
No matter how wonderful life is on your own, it is even more incredible when you can share it with others. Can you remember a time when someone helped you or when you needed a friend?
Look at the teamwork that it requires to bring a child into this world.
There is a saying that it takes a village to raise a child.
Have fun with your team.
Let them know how much you care.
Let them know how great they are.
Acknowledge, recognize and appreciate the contribution they make.

From the I Ching or Book of Changes by Brian Browne Walker:
The Taming Power of The Great
In the face of rising tension, keep still. Honor in practice what you have learned from the I Ching.
A difficult and challenging time must be taken as an opportunity to express in the outer world our highest inner principles. This counsels us to keep still under pressure and embody the virtues of the I Ching. In this way even the most arduous trails can be successfully met.
Others are often tempted to test the inner strength that we have gained through study and discipline. By pushing and prodding they hope to reveal the weakness of our connection to truth. If we allow them to do this, we are undermined, and they go on, unlearning and satisfied at having engineered our downfall. On the other hand, if we keep still and cling firmly to what is right – the power of the great – then eventually we can tame the negative energy and instill in others the desire to grow spiritually.
It is just such challenges to our strength and character that enable us over time to embody in practice the strength of the I Ching. A spiritual understanding that is not practiced under fire is without value; only by applying our knowledge in trying situations do we come into genuine possession of it. So use these tests as opportunities to purify your thoughts and actions. By holding to what is correct in the face of pressure, you gain the strength and peace of mind of the spiritual masters.
If you deviate from the path of the Sage and act to punish or condemn others now, misfortune will result. Instead, meet attacks with stillness, acceptance and fidelity to proper principles. Treat others with gentleness, patience and forgiveness. If you are steadfast in this, good fortune will ultimately be yours.
“Challenges don’t build character, they reveal it.”

from my sweet honey…..
When I meditated on the word guidance, I kept seeing “dance” at the end of the word. I remember reading that doing God’s will is a lot like dancing. In dancing, when two people try to lead, nothing feels right. The movement does not flow with the music, and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person relaxes and lets the other person lead, both bodies begin to flow with the music. One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back or by pressing lightly in one direction or another. It is as if two become one body, moving beautifully. The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness from one person and gentle guidance and skill from the other.
When I saw “G,” I thought of God, followed by “U” and “I” dance. God, you and I dance. This statement is what guidance means to me. I became willing to trust that I would get guidance about my life. Once again, I became willing to let God lead.
True love and relationship is like a dance. There is a rhythm and music along with a natural giving and receiving. When one surrenders and let’s go, there is true union and oneness. There is unconditional love.
May you find this beauty and joy in your love and relationships.
May you see God in each other.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Thoughts are things.
It is how you perceive life that creates your reality.
You have the freedom of choice and with it you color your world.
Your choices are based on your perceptions.
Is the glass half full or half empty?
Is the universe for you or against you?
Are your perceptions accurate or are they biased because of your preferences?
Whatever you think is true for you.
It requires the same amount of energy to be positive as it does to be negative.
What is your perspective?
By using your discernment and wisdom, you are able to see the truth in the moment.
This allows you to make the best possible choices.
There is a well known story about three men who spent their lives quarrying rocks. When asked what they were doing, one replied, “Breaking rocks.” The second said, “Earning a living.” The third said, “Our team is building a cathedral.” Which of the three had the most job satisfaction?
“If you think you can, or if you think you can’t, either way, you’re right.”
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
“Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”
