You must have remembered the story from your childhood, where an old man was worried about his sons who were always quarreling among themselves. In order to teach them a lesson he ask them to break a bundle of sticks tied together. Obviously none of them could. And when the bundle was untied they were able to break each stick easily enough.
The power of unity is known to all of us. But we often seem to forget it when it comes to individual success. This is unfortunate that most of us consider our success as a personal property, and others are not involved in it.
Dr. John Maxwell, one of the greatest inspirational authors of our times, in his book 'Success Journey' says that success is not a trip that you take alone. But it is something that you take with your family and your friends. Think about it, if at the end of all the achievements, all the accomplishments, you find yourself alone, will you call it success in real sense?
This is why, even your dream and your success does not belong to you alone. Even though you work hard towards your dream, there are people who are working behind the scene to make sure that you are able to give your hundred percent. Want examples, I will give you some.
You are studying in school so that you can have good education; your parents are slogging to pay for the fee and provide for you.
You are working hard at your office. It is the question of your career; your spouse back home frees you of petty domestic problems so that you can give your hundred percent.
You missed your child's birthday party as you were busy in an important business meeting. It was very important for the child, but she still smiles and hugs you.
Do you think that it is possible without unity? Don't you feel that these people are doing their bit so that YOU can be successful? And so, unity plays an important role, even if we are talking about your personal success. So, it is your responsibility to maintain unity if you really wish to be a success in life.
But there is unity with someone else as well that will play a much bigger role. It is so because this someone else is a mysterious partner in your success.
Who is this mysterious partner?
The dream that has taken seed in your mind is a manifestation of your purpose in life. You have been sent on this earth to fulfill that particular purpose by one an only God. Now when the purpose of your life and the dream is given by the God (or Higher Consciousness), don't you think that it is your biggest ally and partner in your success.
If you open any religious scripture (though this site does not subscribe to any particular religion), you will find that the unity with God is always stressed upon. It is said that God plus one is majority. So, even if during the pursuit of your dream, you find yourself lonely (and you just might), you still have the support of the Almighty, only if you are united with him.
How do you unite with this Higher Consciousness? Simple, by having faith and submitting to it. I have discussed about it in details in Power of Faith & Power of Submission.
Once you unite with God, your success does not remain your responsibility anymore, but become that of God itself. It is on him now to see that you succeed in accomplishing your mission of life. And nothing is big enough for God.
So multiply your potential and insure your success by unleashing the Power of Unity.
- Unity with God. Always remember God plus one is majority.
- Unity with your family. They will stand by you whenever you need them.
- Unity with Mentors, Teachers. They always want the best for you.
- Unity with friends. They are always there to support you.
