Empower Network’s Rui Gabriel shares his secret to success
Whether it’s in our professional or personal lives, many of us make extraordinary accomplishments each day.
Many of our greatest accomplishments were made possible by the influence or motivation of individuals on our teams.
During an Empower Hour call, Rui Gabriel shared what he thinks is the secret to success: teamwork.
Take a look at today’s best companies, you will see that each and every one of them are composed of a great team.
Great teams are vital for the preservation of a business because they serve as a support system, provide additional insight, are always mindful of the goal and will work as hard as they can to achieve this goal.
Rui shared how he came from having no success at all to being the most successful he has ever been in his life.
He also shared an interesting story of a moment where he learned the significance of teamwork, which has been one of his greatest life lessons.
For those that missed the call and want a refresher:
As a teen, Rui wanted to be a priest, so he went to study in Italy and lived in a monastery. Here, the monks didn’t speak, had a very strict order and were very structured.
One day, he was working in the garden and using a shovel that eventually broke.
Not knowing what to do because he couldn’t speak and ask for another one, Rui looked around and wondered how to go about replacing his shovel. After a few seconds, one of the monks came from across the field, gave him a new shovel, picked up the old one and walked away.
What Rui realized after this moment was that everyone in the monastery was paying attention to everyone’s needs and took care of each other at all times.
He could always count on someone to be there and support him because everyone on the team was always focused on not only the ultimate goal, but the well being of each team member.
