By bringing together different skill sets, life experiences, and diversities in cooperation to achieve a common goal, you will need to leave behind past practices that no longer serve. Mastery and balance can then be achieved.
Cooperation is the key word. When you have a variety of peoples all working toward the same goal, the only way to achieve success is with cooperation and acceptance of differing views.

The coming together of experiences can work to everyone’s advantage if outdated practices are allowed to fall by the way side.
