You are responsible for your own growth and progress in this life.
No one else can do the work for you.
However, you can only grow and progress so much on your own.
Inevitably, you will need other people along the way.
As you work to improve and evolve as a person, as you pursue success in whatever way you define that for yourself, you are going to need assistance, guidance, and even partnership.
You are going to need community.
And through community, you may discover that your own growth, your own progress, and your own success is just a small part of something bigger and more meaningful.
Your experience of this life may be a solitary one, but the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences will mean significantly more along the way when they are shared with others.
