Success is team effort

I got home a short while ago from my daughter’s softball game. We won, 5-0, defeating the #1 team in the state.

After the game, I was talking with one of the coaches about how well our girls had played. I told her that I thought our defense was the difference.

She didn’t disagree, but added that it was more than just defense. Our girls played as a team.

As I thought back on the game, I saw that she was right.

When there was a play at first, our right-fielder was hustling over behind the first baseman to back up the throw. (I might add that she was doing a great job of it and not just because she’s my daughter.)

When a member of the other team bunted, all our infielders yelled, “Bunt!” Everyone knew just where to go. Our first and third basemen charged toward the batter, while our second baseman ran over to cover first. It was smooth, clean — like clockwork.

When one of our players was at bat, other players were yelling encouragement. In the field, everyone was talking to each other, letting each other know the number of outs and where the next play was to be made.

Isn’t this a lot like our business and a lot like life.

Success in business comes much easier to those supported by a team. When we share our gifts, it’s to everyone’s betterment.

It’s good to know that when you’re trying to get somewhere, someone is there backing you up.

What a great feeling to know that others who have taken the road to success are willing to show you the way.

How wonderful to hear encouragement from others that you can be successful, that they believe in you.

I’m thrilled to say I’ve found just such a team. If you’d like to know more, go to this link. Your teammates are waiting for you.

    You are so right. So many people out there don’t have a team to help them. I’m glad you’ve found your team.
