The importance of a Team
Many people would say I'm an asshole or anti-social because I don't do "friendships." I would confidently tell you that I have a much more stable, and harmonious interaction with everyone that I interact with, because I build my relationships based on merit, value, and honesty. I've had to make a lot of BIGPP decisions, cut a lot of people, and dig deep to figure out what the right move is, not just for myself, but for my team.
Whatever it is that you decide to pursue, a team is a valuable resource. I decided to continue to nurture and prioritize my CSGO team, because in my eyes, the people I've met outside of CSGO have never been as "sharp" as my teammates. They have paraded around with immense delusion and doubt in themselves about why they don't succeed, and how it is everyone else's fault. I have built my team, and my own person on authenticity and truth. I believe it is very important that you surround yourself with people who live up to the same standards you hold yourself to, if you are to achieve harmony and progress in your shared goals.
"Birds of a feather flock together."
"Show me your friends and I'll show you your future."
I don't know who said these phrases but they really slap.
