Great teams are harder to come by nowadays. Not because we are absent of great people. But, because we are absent of great people that are okay with NOT being the center of attention…

When groups of great people come together and accomplish even greater things, it’s because a vast majority of them were able to swallow their pride and take off their cape and say —

“I’m okay with not being the hero in this story, as long as it means WE can WIN.”

Sooner or later, all of us have to come to this realization if we want to be successful. Sooner or later, all of us have to ask the question — do we want to be the hero… or do we want to win?
