On a recent episode of Blogcast FM with Srinivas Rao, Simon Sinek discuss human relationships and how they provide the energy we all need to continue moving forward:
Humans are constantly looking to build relationships. At the end of the day, it is relationships –– it is community –– that helps us survive.
Solo entrepreneurship is a fools game. Sure, you can make some money and tell yourself that you get to be your own boss. But those days when things go wrong and your by yourself? It’s heart-wrenching. It requires vast amounts of energy to keep going when you don’t think you can do it. This is why partnership is important. Having someone close to you that will say “No, I believe in you. Let’s do this. We can do this together” is vital to your success.
It always human beings and human relationships that help us solve our problems. If we don’t believe we can, but someone else does believe we can, it empowers us.
