How being in a supportive community can make you grow?
May 01, 2018 by Patrick Kozakiewicz
How often do you wonder about all the things you have accomplished in your life? About your chances, successes, about your goals? I would dare to guess, not too often. And probably even less about how you achieved them. Well, it is time, now, to think about the fact that everything you ever have or will have achieved was thanks to others, thanks to the community. This short blog post is just about this, about why the power of community is crucial to achieve any and all of your goals.
Let me illustrate 3 examples to consider for the sake of the argument.
Example 1 | Fitness
Arnold Schwarzenegger gave a motivational speech to a graduating class where he stated that:
None of us can make it alone. None of us. Not even the guy that is talking to you right now, who was the greatest bodybuilder of all times.
Example 2 | Business
Great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people.
These words uttered by Mr. Jobs clearly illustrate why and how business has been shaped since the beginning. Actually, there would be no business without another, without exchanging, selling, buying or dealing with another. It always requires another. So, whether you are a one-person company or part of a 1,000 company, the need for others is part of the package.
Example 3 | Education
We continuously build upon the knowledge of others. It was Sir Isaac Newton who captured it best saying,
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
Who are you taught by? It is our mothers who need to bear us in the first place. So much of us is shaped by how they lived their lives. Then once we are born we need others to survive. Have you ever watched a 2 year old trying to tie their shoes? Can you even imagine what we as a human race would accomplish if there was no communities? If these questions seem far-fetched, simply research the literature concerning how humans are social creatures to their core. In other words, we learn from others and continue until our dying day.
This is exactly why the power of the community is crucial for not only surviving, but thriving and of course, reaching your goals. Moreover, research has shown that your chances of achieving a goal by being in a group increase by 95%.
