Why is it important to build relationships?
Here is why you need to build a relationship:
Every human being has an inane need to be connected with others. Religious people even testify that God created human beings to have a relationship with. Well, regardless of your spiritual disposition, it remains a fact that everybody needs to go out and make friends. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, single or married, male or female, straight or gay… even those who shun making friends know deep down that they long for true companionship and they resent true friendships because they fail to find it.
Look at it this way… No man is an island. Especially if you plan to get rich in the 21st century where one of the most important factors of survival lies outside ourselves – other people.
If you read Dale Carnegie’s book – ‘How To Win Friends & Influence People’, you will find that most of the examples of successful people are those who live life getting along well with others and that they have a ‘way’ with people.
Even when you look at million dollar deals, there were instances when deals were made or broken because of the way solicitors approached their venture capitalists or investors. They are after all, human and a good praise can go a long way.
You see, building relationships are the key to success and happiness. Success NOT only in the monetary sense, but also success when it comes to living a fulfilling life of rich, meaningful friendships (which will also lead back to true wealth if you play your cards right).
Deep down, everyone wants others to recognize them for the things they want to be proud of. You don’t need to be very good at talking to others. Sometimes, just being there lending a listening ear to someone else’s problems is suffice to strengthen one’s relationship. You don’t even need to give really constructive advice, just be there for others. The human ego is something that must be handled with care so try not to give useless advice to someone in need.
“Give advice only when you are asked”
At the end of the day, we have to give onto others what we expect them to give onto us. The irony of life is this, when we crave for friendship, often we don’t get what we want. But when we take the focus off ourselves and truly give to others and be a friend to them, you will not only gain your friendship, people will be inclined to give back to you.
