Nothing ever exists entirely alone.

A flower, regardless of its beauty, can never survive on its own. It is depended on the soil for support, the fertilizer for food, the rain for water, the gardener for care and its fellow flowers to enhance their overall visibility so that others notice its beauty.

It is not unusual to hear stories of organizations who think highly of themselves, leaders who felt that their organization depended on their supreme leadership and individuals who felt that others around them cannot survive without their skills.

Very often, when a group or an individual becomes very successful, their ego rises and think that everybody else exists because of their presence. Thinking that they know everything, strongly believes that everybody should listen to their instructions and bow to their supremacy. 

They failed to listen, to learn and to improve. They had forgotten that nothing exists alone in this world and all of us are depended on each other for support and survivor, like the flower.

"Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else." - Buddha.
