I find this interesting how birds flying in a v has a great meaning in life .. As a bird lover i love this The picture i posted has great meaning as well The picture says When there is courage and encouragement The progress is greater A timely word of encouragement always motivates helps and strengthens. It produces the best of benefits ..this reminded me of mylot Here is the rest of the story: 1. A good leader is a good follower Birds flying in flocks can migrate longer distances than birds flying alone. They save energy and fly faster together 2. Democratic groups share leadership Birds in flocks lead and follow at the same time. There is no single leader 3. A good leader makes others aware of possibilities When starlings of flamingos are threatened, the whole flock reacts at once with very little delay between noting the threat and evading it. It isn’t any one bird that has the responsibility for protecting the flock. They all have responsibility for protecting the flock from danger 4. A great leader steps down Birds share leadership. When they fly in the v-formation, for instance, the lead bird works the hardest. Many of the birds in the flock take turns flying lead so that no one bird collapses from exhaustion. In flocks of pigeons, even the weakest birds sometimes lead. Zoologist Dora Biro has speculated that the chance of survival goes up when birds take on leadership positions rather than always submitting to a leader Found this really interesting as a life lesson What do you think ?

A very good analogy but the picture is not realistic. If you watch a flight of geese you will notice that one side of the "V" is always longer. Do you know why?

As they said, we cannot live without other people. Thus, we need to work in a team as much as possible.

@Nana49 I do agree with you. Regardless, we also need to consider to choose these people who are a good influencer for us.
