We are all just one person in this world. In order to find success, move forward, and make things happen, we can’t do it alone. It is extremely important to form a team around you that supports you on your way to your goals.
This message is to play your role. Everyone in a team has their own unique skill-sets and offerings. Being open and honest with yourself about what those might be not only provide the most for your team, but give you the best chance to find success in your own work. Even Kobe Bryant, one of the best basketball players of all time, knew that he just played his role for the Lakers in the many championships they won.
Playing your role starts with being honest with yourself about what you are most qualified or capable at doing, and then communicating that to your team. That way your talents can be managed as part of the bigger picture you are contributing toward.
