SEVENTEEN

Power Through Cooperation

Leaders recognize that they can’t do it all themselves, so they are always alert to enlisting competent men and women who can help them achieve their goals. Leaders recognize that the greatest single limitation in any endeavor in human society is talented people. So leaders are always seeking out talented people, one way or another.

Seek out the advice of others. One of the most important rules of success I ever heard is that you need to ask your way to success. Ask other people for the help you need. Ask for advice. Ask for counsel. Never assume that you know it all or try to learn it from the ground up. As they say, you’ll never live long enough to make every mistake. So ask others and learn from them.
