The solitary bird is an easy prey for predators. It has no companion and has to care for its own.
Are you alone?
“…It is not good that the man should be alone: I will make him an help meet for him.” (Gen. 2:18)
Although this refers to the married state, in real life and business, this also holds. When a business is run solely by one person, the capacity for expansion is hindered in addition to results.
You can achieve success on your own in a significant way but you need others to make it monumental. In your business… in your activities… in your life, are you struggling to do everything on your own? There is a limit to what you can do and achieve alone.
“..How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight…” (Deut. 32: 30).
It is a simple law. One person’s achievement when properly joined up with others will bring significant gains.
This can be true when the synergies are properly linked. Where there is unity and purpose of mind, much can be achieved. Unity makes for a complete whole with no space for divisions, rancor and lack of co-operation.
But are there spaces in between the two?
There is no space in 1 + 1 = 1.
This equation is contrary to mathematical reasoning. But that spells out unity. Unless this is the case, then the efforts of two or more people joined together for a purpose will not produce any outstanding results.
In 1 + 1 = 11, there is a big space.
Every one is on his own although joined together. Individualism and infighting even in the midst of togetherness can constitute a space.
Likewise, 1+1 = 2 has room for spaces to sing one’s own song. The slogan of such is –
“Each one for himself even though we are together.”
Just look at the third bird at the far right. It is just waiting to come in into the space created between the two. Can the space between the two close to keep out the third: the gossiper, the family wrecker, the saboteur, the selfish, the jealous, the destroyer of friendships, marriages and unions
Keep your relationships well. Close the spaces. Good and thriving friendships, families, and partnerships portend well for stabilized, strong and stress free societies.
