Working together is the best way to achieve success – Dadi Janki

Every task is easy or the one who is able to co-operate.

Working together is the best way to achieve success. I need to recognize that everyone has his or her individual talents, and when I am able to connect with them, we can work together to complete the task.
To respect other people is to understand and appreciate their unique qualities. I need to understand that every person around me is different; everyone is unique and has amazing qualities and talents. When I look at others in this way I no longer expect them to change according to my wishes, but instead find that I respect them for who they are.
