It takes a Village.
I believe every time we progress in life or take a step forward it is because of five other people behind the scenes helping, motivating, and/or empowering us. I know I would not be where I am today without fifteen people behind me. Its like a pit crew- it takes finesse, ease, and the appropriate strategies to move forward. At the end of the day i believe you need to surround yourself with people who want to see you succeed.
It is no accident we have certain people in our life at various seasons. In my experience, I believe people genuinely want to do the right things. We fail, often. Other times we succeed and do impressive things, beautiful things in fact, but it is not because we did it alone. We need other people.
