If you want success, you need others. If you want to make an impact, focus on the needs of others.
Champions and olympians in individual sports (such as golf, tennis, gymnastics, etc.) need others to achieve success. They need a team of people who will coach them, help them, believe in them, and reassure them when they fail. Victory comes from individual effort. Success is a team effort.
Beyond success is impact. Lasting impact, the kind that changes lives and the world, only comes when you focus on the needs of others. When you focus on the needs of others, you begin to see them and their world as they do. You begin to understand the unique challenges they face. Empathy and compassion begin to grow within your heart.
Once you are filled with empathy and compassion, you begin to see the needs of others. Once you see those needs, you know what you can do to help.
