What Is a Relationship?
A relationship is a bond between people that connects them and lets them share each other’s feelings, thoughts, common beliefs, and values.
There is a whole lot of exchange of information and ideas in a relationship and this can positively or negatively impact your life.
Relationship plays a major role in your journey to success. It determines to a large extent if you will succeed or not.
The popular saying “Show me your friend and I will tell you who you are” is unarguably true. This saying portrays the effect relationship can have on a person’s life.
There are various qualities you need to look out for before relating closely to people. Other than being loyal, honest, trustworthy, caring, and the likes, the following are very important qualities you should not also neglect when choosing who to relate with.
1. Have A Close Relationship With Those Already Ahead Of You In Life.
This set of people should be ahead of you either by age or achievements. They have the experience you need to pull through and be successful.
Relate with them if you need wisdom for life, success, or to know the Dos and Don’ts in the niche you want to succeed in.
They are your mentors and life coaches. They should be people you trust and people who are always willing to guide you.
2. Have A Close Relationship With Those Who Are On The Same Or Slightly A Different Level With You.
This should be irrespective of age.
Your major consideration here should be the quality of achievements so far and their ambition to succeed.
If you relate with those who are nonchalant about success, sooner or later you too will be drained of all your ambition and hunger to succeed. You will become like them!
Have a close relationship with like minds. You may have different areas you want to succeed. But as long as you both have the passion to succeed, you will serve as a Motivation to each other.
3. Have A Close Relationship With Those Who You Are Already Ahead Of But Looks Up To You As An Inspiration For Success.
These people are very important to relate to. You should not look down on them for any reason!
Knowing that people are looking up to you as an inspiration for success will help keep you in check and also give you reasons not to give up on your desire for success.
Do not give them a reason by your actions to conclude that success is unattainable. They help you remain focused on your pursuit of success.
The relationship is a crucial factor for success.
Need I remind you that those you relate with determine who you will turn out to be later on in life. Be careful in choosing the right company. Set healthy boundaries and relationships with those who can impact you positively.
