Today of all days, particularly here in Europe, Simon Sinek’s encouragement to persevere is spot-on.
Life is difficult and dangerous. Anyone who would attempt to do it alone is simply mad. We know to always do difficult things with a buddy. So if the journey of life is to be filled with setbacks and disappointments, with confusion and uncertainty, it makes sense that we should trust others to join us on the journey.
As individuals, we’re useless. We can’t lift heavy weight and we can’t solve complex problems. But together?
Together we are remarkable.
