A great quality of a champion is that they commit to crossing the finish line, no matter what. Indeed, that’s what “commitment” means… “no matter what”.
But our ego says that we have to do life alone. It’s makes up stories that somehow we get extra points for doing things alone. Another great quality of true champions is that they can receive help and build teams. A common place this starts is the way we separated from our father which leads to stories that can keep us trapped in doing life alone.
As men we often make up that we have to go it alone, especially shutting out the help of other men. The ego will make up that we are weak if we let other men help us, but that is just the ego working to make us weak.
