When we talk about harmony, we generally refer to the sounds of music or a melody. Different harmonious chords connected together to make something that is very pleasing. Each note has its own specific characteristics and is completely acceptable on its own. However, when constructed together into a musical melody, each note finds its true significance in relation to what it contributes.
The same holds true for us. We all have a special set of talents, skills, and capabilities that hold us in good stead. When we contribute those skills to others, we can discover a personal value and a sense of satisfaction that is deep and rich and resonates with harmony.
In contrast, however, when we focus on our own pursuits and well being with little or no concern for others, the outcome is often disharmonious. Just as a chord played without regard for the whole jars the senses, a person who does not contribute to the whole creates tension and discord.
In the language of business this harmony can be equated to synergy. The notion that the effort of a successful team surpasses the greatest effort of any single individual on that team. To be most effective, people in a team work in harmony. They all share their personal best to move the team forward towards its chosen objective. If a team member gets off track or begins putting his or her own interests before those of the team, then the project is undermined.
Harmony is of the essence to teamwork and teamwork is essential to success – work success or personal success. When we all work together and have the freedom to express ourselves, we create harmony and create extraordinary results.
People who live full and satisfied lives embrace the joy of others and are as concerned for the welfare of society as they are the well being of their selves.
That which will benefit the whole – a sales or management team, a family, a nation, a world – will benefit each of us. We have all been given unique qualities and talents. It is our obligation to acknowledge them and share them so we can contribute to the whole of society.
When you live mindful of harmony, you develop rouse your potential and expand your consciousness. Synergy is what brings fundamental human qualities like respect, acceptance, understanding and compassion to the surface. Harmony reminds you of how very special and important every person is.
