To be successful, we all must work as a team. It is vital to communicate with one another, motivate, and then simply get the job done.

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” These words were proclaimed from someone that is Iconic when it comes to working as a team to achieve a goal. This person believed in showing up early with his team, and leaving late. This individual worked with his team tirelessly until the job was done. It wasn’t just the individual that went down in history, but his team. He and his team mates are immortalized in not only sports but culture, as Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls of the 1990’s.

Although we might not step on the Hardwood of an NBA court the principles still apply.

History is full of examples of team work. It took a team to build the great pyramids, the Eifel tower in Paris and Rome. Many say that “Rome was not built in a day” that’s because it took the implementation of thousands of people to work as a team to build a great empire.


There is a saying that proclaims “It takes two flints to start a fire” meaning it takes two people to accomplish something great. By working in teams, we have ignited a passion for lifelong learning. A yearning for knowledge that never will cease. We must live our lives with a curiosity of how things work, or a desire to learn how to do things better. We must live our lives with a passion to learn.

Never fail to cease an opportunity to expand our knowledge, not only in academics but in life. Never hesitate to learn how to be a better friend, a better spouse, son, daughter, uncle, cousin the list goes on and in infinite.

Clay P. Bedford once said: You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he or she lives.

So go fourth into the world and plant your own seeds. Seeds that will make an impact, touch a live and make the world a better place for all to live.
