Teamwork – A Lasting and Strong Foundation

I feel that when it comes to Internet Marketing and building relationships with others in any area of your life, how you go about building that relationship is so very important.

I have been introduced to many new people. As always, I consider that very special. Many of these people have shared with me that they have been looking for people that they could trust in and work as a team throughout their many endeavors.

I want to share with them and with you, that even though it is always a great thing to welcome new team members, what makes sharing with others and relationship marketing so great, is that we all are here to help each other, no matter what.

I hope you enjoy and maybe even apply a few of these tips within your own life.


Teamwork is Not Just for the Birds

I personally find these facts about geese fascinating.

Did you know that when you see geese flying in a “V” shape, that they are flying that way for a reason and not just practicing the alphabet?

As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following.

By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.

When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone — and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.

— I remember as I was growing up, I would see geese flying in a “V” formation and thought they flew like that to help remind them in which direction they were suppose to be going. (I know, sounds pretty ridiculous, but hey, I was a kid).

When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point.

Also, as they are flying, they “honk” at those geese ahead of them to encourage them to keep up their speed.

— This reminds of members of a team, whether in business or sports, everyone cheering each other on and encouraging them to make it to the finish line; or in terms of a network marketer, encouraging them to never give up on what they have worked so hard on and that eventually all their efforts will pay off.

— (OR) the “honking” also makes me think of a driver behind you wanting you to “keep your speed up” so you don’t slow them down.

When a goose gets sick or is wounded by gunshot, and falls out of formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection.

They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly or until it dies, and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their group.

— This, I feel is especially touching and reminds me of a wounded and fallen military person who cannot go on by themselves. And how their fellow soldiers will go back, risking their lives to help their fallen comrade move to safety. Whether or not that soldier is fatally wounded or not, they will protect their own.

As with the geese in their “V” formation, we as people, must all work together, in whatever we are trying to accomplish.

Even if we are not exactly on the same team or believe in the same opportunity, it would do us all good to help each other when need be.

We should all show respect for everyone and offer encouragement to those who may need a boost.

You never know when you may be the next one who happens to fall out and need to be lifted back up into formation.

This is what Teamwork and caring for others is all about.
