The second letter both success and failure have in common is E, which stands for ENVIRONMENT.
Having said you’re the Director of your life, meaning you call the shots, it’s also important to note that a director alone can’t make a FEATURE FILM. It requires the effort of others who’re willing to be a part of your project, they’re regarded to as the cast and crew.
This is where the quality of your RELATIONSHIP is tested. How well can you ATTRACT others to be a part of your story and much more than that, how well do you VALUE others that will make them stick to your story till it becomes a SUCCESS?
Your environment is everything nature brings your way both tangible and intangible things. And the idea here isn’t to just use others for your selfish interest only but to relate with them such that everyone feel fulfilled at the end of the journey. In your success story, they also should find their own success as your story helps them fulfill their purpose.
If you don’t make the best use of your environment, the chances of you ending as a failure are high as against you becoming a success. It’s good to call the shots in your life, but it’s also good you understand the importance of GOOD RELATIONSHIP.
Your Scriptwriter, Cinematographer, Gaffer, Producer, Executive Producers and others all matters. If these people and the resources needed aren’t available, you have NOTHING to show the world.
How well do you relate with your environment? Your success depends on it.
