Flourishing happens best in community where everyone generously lays their individual strengths in the center of the table and announces, “Here is my best. Receive it!”
How many times have you shared a dream, idea or project with a friend only to be told, “Go do it!”
“You should do it,” he exclaims with finger jabbing toward some far off vantage point. The suggestion is that you possess all the necessary ingredients for success. If you did, you wouldn’t have shared the dream with your friend! Duh!
Loral Langemeier writes that there are no self-made millionaires. Seth Godin declares that “Autarky is Dead.” Thank goodness voices are speaking up letting us know it is okay to “become more dependent, not less” as Seth writes in his three-line blog on the impossibility of self-sufficiency.
Thank you Loral and Seth!
