It is only the strong survive, right?
If I’m not on my own team, then who is? I have dreams and goals just like the next person.
I’m trying to make it. I’m trying to get to where I’m going. I’m trying to reach my destination. I’m trying to achieve success, just like you.
Just like you’re on your team, I’m on my team. Yes, we may be direct competitors in our desires and what we crave for in our hearts, but their can still be a mutual respect.
This thing right here has nothing to do with ego or selfishness. I mean isn’t it fair to say that an individual has to make some type of living. An individual has to have some type of purpose in life, a sense of accomplishment. Why else would we live? Success lies at the end of the tunnel with everybody. The success objectives is the only thing that differentiates us. We are individual teams with individual team goals.
Whether the competition is direct or indirect we can agree that an individual team is in full support of what he or she does.
Okay, so we compete over attention, money, job security, business, whose the best, the big stage, even over people. Competition will always be stiff, but I have my competitive edge. I know what my niche is. I know who my target market is. I know what route and way I want to go to get it.
It is to each’s own. We may be on separate teams, but we can still respect each others hustle and grind. I’ve made up in my mind that I’m going to respect what you do, but will you do the same towards me? I’m confident with my plight and journey, my skills and my grind. There is no need for me to disrespect or hate on someone else’s team. You’re on your team and I’m on my team.
I’m not trying to kill yo flow. I don’t desire to. I channel my energies on what I’m trying to accomplish in life. Causing chaos on your squad or knocking you off course provides me with no satisfaction. I don’t have time for it.
Even in joint ventures and/or particular projects. Those are short-term goals where 2 individuals bring there skills together for a shared goal. It is a bind, an agreement, but with the notion that each individual team gets something out of it.
It amazes me to see so many people who are on their own team think that nobody else is on their own team, that they are the only team on the planet that is trying to do something. And they don’t care what you are trying to accomplish. What you’re doing doesn’t support their cause or goals. So they disrespect you, downplay what you do, ignore you or you get that special shady-ness treatment. Gotta love the shady-ness!!!!!
So, I’m putting my feelings out there. And making it known…
I’m on my team. I’m happy for you on what you’re doing. If I’m vibing, I’ll support, but don’t get it twisted. I’m trying to do something GREAT in my life too. I’m trying to make something BIG happen so that my kids can have opportunities that I didn’t have, too. I want doors to open up for me, just like you want doors to open up for you.
I want support for what I do, just like you do. With that said, I have much respect for those that are making something out of themselves. Don’t come to me the wrong way though. Don’t downplay or play that power struck game with me. I’m not going to do that to you. So I don’t expect it to be done to me.
I’m on my team too. I’m always on my team. Being on my team lets me know that at least one person on this planet cares about what I do and where I’m trying to go! I love who I am and I love what I do.
