Having great people around us is a gift we should never take for granted. If you take it for granted, life will not be fair with you. Human beings are social animals. We like to be around great people, people who respect us. We need great people in our lives. If you have not found one, it is never to late. We need them. They need us. You need them. They need you. You cannot work alone, live alone, or love alone. You need great people to lift you up when you are down. You need great people to raise your energy up when your energy is down. You need great people to celebrate with you when things are good. You need great people to mourn with you when things are bad.

No matter who we think we are, we need great people around us. According to James C. Collins, “For no matter what we achieve, if we don’t spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect, we cannot possibly have a great life. But if we spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect, people we really enjoy being on the bus with- and who will never disappoint us- then we will almost certainly have a great life, no matter where the bus goes.” Your success depends on your relationships with other people. Because you cannot do it alone. You need other people’s brains to get things done. So if you want to be successful in your life, you need help from other people.
