Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

It was a while ago, but I heard the saying “teamwork makes the dream work.” I immediately fell in love with it for many reasons. The biggest reason was to gain the understanding your dream cannot be done on your own. I always knew you need a supporting cast, but I was really happy to get it reaffirmed.

After googling to find the author, I discovered Mr. John Maxwell was the creator.

The original quote is, “Teamwork makes the dream work, but a vision becomes a nightmare when the leader has a big dream and a bad team.” Maxwell is known for being an exemplary writer, trainer, and leader. I have a couple of his books. He’s one of many motivational speakers I encourage anyone to follow in my blog, so I’m not surprised when I learned the source. Maxwell is all about the team.

For me, Maxwell’s quote hits home with everything I do. Of course, the media and “successful” people don’t show the multitude of people that had a hand in their work, which is fine. However, it isn’t altogether accurate. All great accomplishments require support. I still believe you have to do the hard work while most are having fun, sleeping or relaxing.

Remember, teamwork makes the dream work all day, every day.

Find Your Greatness,
