The Essence of Relationships

If you are looking forward to having a relationship which brings fulfillment, you will need to change your mindset when it comes to dealing with others. Here are some ways you can do that:

  • Learn to understand people

Many people care about others,but they still remain out of touch. In those cases,I think the problem is that they don’t understand people.

If you desire to improve your understanding of people so that you can build positive relationships, then remember that,

People are selfish… However, speak to their needs first.

People need to be understood…listen to them.

People are insecure…give them confidence.

People get emotionally low…encourage them.

People want to feel special…Sincerely complement them.

  • Place High Value on people

If you don’t care about people,you are unlikely to make building good relationships a priority in your life.

You can’t make the other fellow feel important in your presence if you secretly feel that he is a nobody.

Les Giblin.

The solution is to place a high value on people. Expect the best from everyone. Assume people’s motives are good unless they prove them to be otherwise. Value them by their best moment.And give them your friendship rather than asking for theirs.

  • Add value to others.

Some people approach every interaction with others as a transaction. They are willing to add value,but only if they expect to receive value in return. If you want to make relationships a priority, you must check your motives to be sure you are not trying to manipulate others.

  • Put Others first

The best way to start off on the right foot is to put others first. The most basic way to do that is to practice the Golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do to you. If you take this mindset into all your interactions with others,you can’t go wrong.

  • Give time to your most valuable relationships

Most people give their relationship on a first-come first- served basis. Who ever gets their attention first gobbles up their time and relational energy.

Since its obvious that your family provides the most valuable relationships in your life,they should come first as you plan to spend your time. After that,should come your next most important relationships. It’s a matter of practising good priorities.
