Being a loner on a mission can become very discouraging.
This is one reason why so many people fail to finish what they start!
They neglect to surround themselves with other "possibility thinkers" - people who will continually support them with, "Yes, you can do it" and "I'll be there for you along the way".
While the focus of Mission Possible has been primarily on personal development, let's now consider the importance of interpersonal development for your success.
To demonstrate the power of cooperation when coaching, I'll often select a volunteer with a smaller build than myself and overwhelm him in a tug of war. After overpowering this individual, I then allow him to grab some mates as together they overwhelm me.
This simple demonstration clearly illustrates the advantages a group holds over an individual.
The law of cooperation is seen in nature.
Do you know that when earthmovers detonate one stick of dynamite, they create a measurable explosive force?
When they put two sticks together and detonate them simultaneously they do not, however, double the explosive power - they quadruple it!
The intriguing thing is that cooperation works not through addition but, rather, through multiplication.
"Two can accomplish more than twice as much as one." - Ecclesiastes 4:9,12
Thomas A. Edison is widely acclaimed as the individual who invented the movie projector, the phonograph and the electric light.
My research reveals he was not the typical inventor we may have envisaged.
He was not like Doc Brown, the inventor from Back to the Future who worked only in solitude. Edison was a team player.
I would go so far as to suggest, if it were not for his ability to encourage creativity and genius in others, he would never have achieved so many great things.
He would often surround himself with a team of six individuals and go to work on a particular project.
By cooperating with other great minds, together, they developed incredible concepts and bright ideas.
