Adversity, effort, work ethic, perseverance and team work are essential ingredients for success of a team. Individuals must work hard to establish common principles and lifestyle choices in order to gel together as a unified team.
Unity is the missing element in many teams that are composed of quality individuals that simply do not perform well together. They have the talent but are dysfunctional as a team because the individuals have separate goals.
Following the principles of unity will not guarantee success. It will put a team in a position for high achievement within the framework of their goals and team identity. Know yourself and know that your goals are within reach.
