A group of people who have a greater relationship than friendship. A brotherhood/sisterhood relationship is a relationship based on collective empowerment in all spheres of life. It is a constellation of stars which form galaxies of infinite possibilities of success in different spheres of our existence.
Each and every person should surround themselves with stars which will brighten up their spheres. And they should not just absorb the light, they must be willing to shine back the light into the sphere.
Should I not afford my friend an opportunity when I have the capacity to do so, why should that person consider me as a brother or even a mere friend?
Friendship cannot be based on going out and sloshing ourselves drunk all the time. Friendship consists of a whole lot of dynamics which require you to ask for help should you need it in every dynamic, and for your closest friends to help you because you would do the same for them.
I have noticed that a lot of people keep dead weight as friends, this dead weight slows them down from achieving their desired successes professionally and in their personal lives. Our closest network is our friends and our friends should understand that they should help us if they can and you should do the same for them.
It is sad that we live in societies where people are resistant to building brotherhood relationships with their friends. In high school our hockey manager used to tell us that he doesn’t want an individual star player because he is managing a team of stars. Good friendships which result in brotherhood relationships operate on the same principles, there is no room for selfishness and the desire to outshine your peers by huge margins. Every star in your galaxy should be able to shine individually.
My power and influence should benefit those around me. And if everyone around me has the same mentality we will become the sun in our galaxy. Real friends become your real family. Blood is made with water.
Sphere of supremacy !
