The Power of Common Ground

There is a “power” that multiplies whenever human beings collectively agree on anything, whether good or bad—it is the power to do the impossible!”

“Unity is strength…When there is teamwork and collaboration wonderful things can be achieved.” – Mattie J.T. Stepanek

Big, impossible, life-changing, world-altering, incredible purposes and missions cannot be accomplished alone.

There is a “power” that multiplies whenever human beings collectively agree on anything, whether good or bad—it is the power to do the impossible!

finding-common-groundOur team at Courage Worldwide has lived this truth firsthand. We all agree it is wrong for a child to be sold for sex. Because of that common belief and our emphasis on unity, we believe that we can do what some would call impossible. We believe we can build a home, a Courage House, for victims of sex trafficking in every city in the world that needs one. We believe we can engage a million people to build a thousand homes in a hundred cities and countries during the next ten years so that hundreds of thousands of children can be rescued, restored, and told the truth that they too were created on purpose, for a purpose.

These individuals that I have the honor of working with at Courage Worldwide are my battle buddies. They have my back and I have theirs. Without them I could not do what I am created to do. Together we are able to accomplish more, faster, than any of us could alone.

Small groups forge bonds that allow members to see in others what they cannot see in themselves.

When a group discovers that its collective identity and destiny is more powerful than their own individual ones, they will accomplish more than they dared to ask or imagine. They will literally change the world around them. While doing this work there is a bond that is forged among individuals who are pursing the impossible that is extremely strong and rarely broken.

We all need someone to believe in us, cheer for us, and kick us in the butt when we need it! The people I work and serve with see my potential much easier than I do. They encourage me when I get down. They pursue me when I doubt. They challenge me when I am tempted to give up, and they love me even when I fail.
