QUOTE #2 – No Man is an Island

No man is an island and no man stands alone. One thing is for sure, to get to the top you are going to need support.

In almost every success story that I have ever read they always, always had someone who opened a door, provided financial support or as Miss Oprah says somebody to show them the way.

When Josephs brother sold him into slavery he must have felt devastated, confused and frightened. Just imagine being betrayed by those closest to you, being torn from family and what is familiar and taken to a strange new land. However, even under circumstances such as this we are never truly alone. Joseph experienced many ups and downs in Egypt from being in charge of Potiphar’s affairs, being thrown in prison before being brought to Pharaohs attention and eventually being second in command over all of Egypt. This story has many points but the one I am looking at today is that even in this strange new land Joseph the Lord provided supporters in the form of Potiphar, the prison warden and Pharaoh.

Its amazing how sometimes you come in contact with individuals who appear to be selfish with their support or maybe they reserve their support for certain categories of persons.We all can provide support to someone on their journey to the top, you never know what your role will be or at what stage of their journey you will impact someone. For each of us the journey is different but regardless of how you start out success can be yours.

I leave you with this African proverb: If you want to go fast go, go alone. If you want to go far, go together…

Until next time walk good.
