Courage is a Team Sport…

3 May

It’s tempting to believe that we can make it on our own …  we can’t because we weren’t designed too.

In the early stages of writing a script or a novel, creating a blog, or building a new start up, the initial creator(s) often do a lot of work… creating on their own.

We do this because we want to, but also because it appears necessary to get the ball rolling; it takes a lot of courage to be an inceptor, but it is foolishness to remain alone and singularly focused thereafter.

I have become somewhat of an expert in this type of foolishness for much of the past five years, I have worked long hours in solitude; it’s true that I have created much but it is also true that I have achieved little.

What are you creating right now… and what is your reason for doing it… what would you like to achieve?

Achievement in our creative endeavors always centers around the involvement of other people; whether that be agencies, labels, publishers, web designers, band members or best of all… the audience of friends that you create for…

DON”T BELIEVE A LIE…. You don’t need to be a success and have money you build a team… the internet allows you to do it right now.

    Hi Goeff…so so true. Spiritually many yeats ago….iwas advised that you shoudnt expect to try to acheive everything on your own. The examples given were things like…does the tailor make his own material to make a siut? Does the supetmarkert grow its own food to sell? No….so why does one expect to cteate the screen play.fully creatimg a book say with illustrations…and so on and so forth. We each have unlimited potential within us abd yet we are all ‘one’. As such each and evry one of us by helping another, are infact helping ourselfs within. Great post…thx dave
