The Power Of One


Each one of us was born alone, other than a few exceptions no doubt, with twins, triplets, quadruplets or even more! We shall also die alone.

Relating the above to the subject matter of this article: ‘The Power of One’, we must remember that our universe was born out of nothingness or ‘zero’ unless science comes up with some revelation to the contrary. Nature gifted our planet with its own atmosphere, solar system, the constellation, the 5 elements and practically all necessary life-support systems we could possibly imagine for the longest time to come.

We humans are pre-programmed to survive and thrive in company of others whereas loneliness has a crippling effect. We all seek company and that is more than sufficient once we find one just ONE compatible soul to be on our side through thick and thin.

We are also well aware of the power hidden inside a small, little seed that, once properly planted, gives birth to a sapling and gradually grows into a fruit-bearing tree. This tree provides not only food to so many but also gives shade from summer heat and a place for birds to roost while also protecting our environment by converting Carbon Dioxide into Oxygen for us to breath at the same time.

I’m sure the possible catastrophe of such an eventuality will be more than total chaos. And how do the computer programs work 1s and 0s, that’s it: 1s and 0s.

One single individual, with active support of just one other like-minded companion can find total protection by watching each other’s back with a 360 Degree vision. The need of the hour, for all of us, is to find that ONE other individual who we can trust entirely and who should also have the same degree of faith in us to create an invincible force, bar none!

One true friend in your life will make an impact that even Millions of Dollars cannot, guaranteed! Why, because money comes and goes but true relations survive whether you become rich or poor. I can say this with absolute certainty as I have been through that step in my own life and proudly enjoy friendships that have sustained over half a century already.

Apply the above principles in life with due diligence and see your creative, productive, supportive network grow to immense power where each individual takes strength from the union rather than using/misusing and/or exploiting anyone.

Make it your ‘mantra’ that you will learn something new each day, to read at least one page of a book yet unread or communicate with one stranger that you have never ever met in your life. Try to gain a little bit of knowledge or share an experience each day of your life and see the change happen, a change for the better, a change to a new “you”, ONE day at a time!!!

Be that friend to someone you know and respect and make sure you fulfil your part of the commitment with diligence, without expecting anything in return! This is the legacy you want to build for yourself, to be remembered by at least one individual as a true human being that ever lived. More the Merrier!!!


Bharat Mathur
Bharat Mathur
WHERE goal setting and systematically achieving each one of them has been the ‘Mantra’, where earning trust by delivering value has been an uncompromising principle and where deeply impactful experiences have made an indelible impression to look directly into the eyes of toughest problems and tackling them head-on has been a major cementing glue in the foundation, Bharat Mathur fits the bill, hands down! Creating value for others, out of the challenges his career in the “C” Suite kept throwing at him left, right and center, Bharat now finds solace in being a ‘Guide by Your Side’ rather than a ‘Sage on the Stage with An Eye on What You Buy’! Past 4 decades of Bharat’s life have been no less eventful than that of anyone else in similar circumstances. However, the way he lived from one challenge to another and stayed focused on his goal is clearly visible as much in his Coaching as in his #1 Best Seller Book: “you Are YOU-nique: Realize Your True Worth”! His next book project tackles ‘Internet of things’ (IoT) from the viewpoint of a layman and helps understand this fast-approaching revolution in simple, easy-to-understand language with live examples: “SMART PHONE + I o T = INCOMPARABLE OPPORTUNITIES” Nurturing a number of successful businesses, mentoring a lot more towards astronomical growth and helping them identify and eradicate trouble spots, Bharat has rightfully earned the nickname: ‘Achiever’ Send him Bouquets or Brickbats, Bharat loves it all!

    • Your wonderful observation is always cherished, Larry! I enjoy your posts equally well and try to imbibe whatever I can.

      Thanks and Warm Regards

    • You are right about that Chris! However, I beg your pardon for being a little bit apprehensive on the rest of your statement. Rewards are earned and not demanded as a right. Learning to be a better Leader gives us the tools but not the right to claim leadership. Yes, you can create a good amount of following by putting into practice what you learn. It is not in a Leader’s DNA to expect to be anointed as one.

  1. I have a friend who is more of a cheerleader than an accountability partner. We fill that role for each other – and we are both more cheer than leader. But we are also both believers in reading and learning. To that end on our accountability sheets that we fill in for the week, we get credit for reading and studying something. As of January 12th I am keeping up with my reading goals. To make sure I stay on track, I date the pages so I am sure to read that far and not fizzle out.

    • My recommendation for you will be to keep doing what you do best and leave the rest up to your friend. Looking at your dedication and consistency, she would either change for the better or absolve you of any responsibility to keep track.
