It is often said, “If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together.” But that is not just some throw away cliche, there is true power in teamwork.

*“Teamwork is the secret that makes common people achieve UNCOMMON results”*

Being self-focused can seriously limit our potential and success in life. In our individualistic society today, it's easy to get caught up in the pursuit of personal success and lose sight of the bigger picture.

There is immense personal growth that occurs when you work in harmony with others. When you collaborate with a team, you're exposed to diverse perspectives, new ideas, inspiration, encouraging energy and innovative approaches. This not only expands your own skill set but also cultivates qualities in you like adaptability, empathy, and resilience.

*“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team”*

Healthy competition is good but from a spiritual perspective it is better to view others as collaborators instead of competitors. Your success is intertwined with the success of those around you.

Let the power of the team flow through you. Always be getting help and input from those who are ahead of you or stronger than you. And always be giving help to those who are less able than you are. Get mentors, counselors and many advisers. And be all those things to others.

*“Don’t aspire to be the best on the team. Aspire to be the best for the team.”*

Remember, when you lift others up, you also elevate yourself.

Happy Friday

All the best to you

As we set out at the beginning of a new term, remember that you possess within you an extraordinary power. You have the power to shape the destinies of the young ones in your care. And while you are helping to form their futures you are at the same time shaping your own.

Every new beginning is a fresh start. It is a chance for you to forget what is behind and to set off on a bold new path.

With every new opportunity there will also come new challenges. Face them with courage and determination. See them as the stepping stones that will forge your character and mold you into the kind of person who can turn dreams into reality.

This is really your moment to shine. You are saving the world one child at a time.

So dare to dream boldly, set audacious goals, and refuse to settle for anything less than greatness.
