It makes me so unhappy to see siblings from the same parents not united. I mean, offsprings from same mother and father not united. Its worrisome, they were raised under the same roof, slept on same bed, ate same food, emerged from same womb but can’t do things together. I don’t want to go further to illustrate about disunity in the society so i am using the family which should be easier to co-ordinate as an example. A friend of mine lost his job and has been without any source of income for some months now. He depends on friends to survive. I told him to let his family I mean his immediate family know about his present state so as to assist him, he said that is the last thing he would do and added that he doesn’t want anyone laughing at him. I felt very sad and confused. Yes! Because if you can’t run to your home in times of great need, where then do you run to? I think the saying “there is nothing important as family” should play an immense role at such times. At that point it dawned on me that some families are not united. Unity is very important. Whether we are talking about family, a sports team, community, school or business, it’s necessary that we get everyone on the train and moving in the right direction with a shared vision, focus, and purpose. When a group comes together they are able to succeed. Despite the fact that unity is highly important, its not easy to bring people together. Factors like agendas, ego, pride, selfishness, personal interest, politics, power struggles, poor leadership, mismanagement, complaining, a lack of vision, focus and purpose etc all prevent a group from uniting and performing at their highest level. But no matter what, all these can be overcome to achieve unity and succeed in life. To achieve unity, focus, energy and time are required. Changing the mindset is vital. Unity happens when each person in a group can clearly see how their personal vision and effort contributes to the overall vision and success of the team. Good communication and transparency are greatly needed to achieve unity. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL! Be Enlightened! Be Inspired!! Be Motivated!!!
