Holding the Rope

What is “holding the rope?”

Imagine that you are hanging from the edge of a cliff with a drop of twenty thousand feet. The only thing between you and an fall to your death is a rope, with the person of your choice on the other end.

Who do you know that has the guts to pull you to safety?

Who will hold the rope?

Who do you know that is going to let that rope burn their hand and not let go?

How many people that you know are going to withstand the burning pain and watch the blood drip from their hands for you? If you can name two people, that’s not good enough, because those two people might not be around.

Many of the greatest sports teams in history weren’t the most talented, but were filled with players who were willing to “hold the rope” for each other.

Surround yourself with people who will “hold the rope” for YOU.
