Our relationships whether personal or professional can make life a joy filled experience or pain and hurt that can scar us mentally for the rest of our lives.
If emotions are our experience of life, relationships are our connection to the world. If you are not happy in any relationship, you are not happy. Traditionally we think of relationships as intimate, monogamous relations. Though relationships are part of all of our lives not just with a loved one. Relationships with family members, friends, student and teachers, bosses and employees, shops and their customers, artist and their inspirations, taxi drivers and their fares, are some of the connections that allow the world to function. Without relationships the world would be a dull and lonely place.
When was the last time you took to an honest and thorough review of all your relationships, not only your intimate, but also your business connections, friendships and family ties? What have your past intimate relationships been like? What does friendship really mean to you? Why do clients leave a company? After all your relationships and networks are proportional to your net worth.
Not understanding the key principles to an outstanding extraordinary relationship has caused couples to accelerate towards the brink of break up, friends to fall out, business and work relationships to go sour with a high price to pay from the physical, emotional, and financial impact.
