SUPPORT. GROWTH. DEVELOPMENT - SUPPORT. CROISSANCE. DÉVELOPPEMENT
The human life is meant to be interdependent, we are supposed to complement each other. The greatest obstacle to human development is the pursuit of a personal agenda to the detriment of the common good. What I have noticed with communities of great poverty is a high degree of suspicion and mistrust that makes people concentrate on making a name and wealth for themselves. Many in these underdeveloped societies believe that discussing their dreams and seeking assistance and partnership is a sign of weakness of could result to their dreams being stolen. Others do not have enough confidence to trust people who have complementary skills to help develop their vision because they feel they might be ridiculed. Without proper self-confidence, trust and interdependence, we cannot go far with our vision. Growth is predicated upon the ability of the community to rally their gifts together for the development of their society. We should pursue our dreams in a way that our personal agenda is woven into the agenda of our immediate community as well as the global one. No man is an island. No matter how gifted you are, your gift still needs another person's input to reach its full potential. Do not let a selfish desire for greatness deprive you and the world from enjoying your gift. It is in supporting and complimenting each other with our gifts and talents that we fully accomplish our dreams and ensure the growth and develop our communities and the world.
