Reflection | PARTNERSHIP
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
Partnership is a relationship between two parties that both supports and benefits both sides, allowing them to achieve much more than they would alone. We are created to work with others, to live life interconnected with those around us. When our relationships are working as they were intended to, everyone will flourish. Partnership means more - more ideas, more hands, more time, more success.
It is because of this that LIVEmpowered has chosen PARTNERSHIP as one of our core values. We are great at what we do, but we know we are better when we work with others; our experience is that our best work comes from working with those who share our vision and values. Andrew Carnegie says of teamwork, “It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results”. We can do so much more and reach so many more people, meaning that more people hear and understand that they are loved, valued, and empowered to make positive choices.
It isn’t just about what we gain. By working in partnership, we have the privilege of serving others and helping them to reach their goals - seeing them flourish.
It can be hard to open ourselves up to others, to allow them in to see our strengths, vulnerabilities, and passions, but when we do, we have a real chance of changing the world for the better.
None of us, including me, will ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.
