In life, no man actually really exist alone, he belongs to one team or the other at different points in his life. Most of the time a man doesn’t have full control of which team he wants to belong to from the onset as nature decides the entry level.
If TEAMS are so important to every man, then what is a team?
A TEAM is a group of individuals who put efforts and resources together in order to achieve a common goal. Either they achieve this goal or not and to what degree the goal is achieved is what determines the MEAT the members of a particular TEAM will EAT.
Earlier, we said nature most of the time determines the team you belong to by default. How? Let’s look into a few instances. You didn’t decide the primary school you’d attend, but when there was inter school competition, did you notice everyone in your school had to work together to prevail over other schools? Of course, your school most likely didn’t win all the competitions. But did you notice in every sport, debate or quiz the representatives of the school won, the whole school was happy and vice versa. Did you decide to be a part of that team? NO, you were there by default.
Here’s another scenario. You applied for a job with a multinational company, say a bank in Branch A. Then months later, the top executives decide to compare the results of branch A against branch B and branch B which is in another state won and the staffs there get bonus for that period. Your team didn’t partake of the extra meat so you don’t know what it tastes like. But could you have joined branch B from onset? Yes. Why didn’t you? Nature kept you in the city where branch A is.
There are some things you will most likely not have a taste of if you stick to your particular team, not because you aren’t putting all your efforts but either the other teammates aren’t up to the to the task, or they aren’t aiming that high or there’s a team with better profile players, stronger tactics and synergy.
Although nature tends to put you in teams by default, but you can consciously change the teams you belong to in life. At the end of every competition, one team will WIN while the other LOSES. If you want a change of MEAT in any area of your life, it’s time you decide the TEAM to belong.
Your MEAT in life is a product of your TEAM.
