Our interpersonal relationships are critical for personal wholeness and professional success. We’re not wired for a completely independent life, to be lived alone. There are times we need to withdraw and get away to regroup, to get some clarity and perspective. The reality is, however, we need each other. Right? A healthy interdependence on others. Key word: healthy. Super important. But we do need each other. Anyone who thinks otherwise is out of touch with their own real needs.
So what do we do with that need?
In order to have successful interpersonal relationships we have to actually work on them.
What does that mean?
It usually means a number of things:
- We have to maintain a proper attitude about self and others.
- We have to develop and continue to sharpen what we know and the skills we need to relate to each other well.
- We have to apply what we know and learn to our own situations.
- We have to be committed to achieving success in our relationships…everyday.
Does it sound easier said than done?
Perhaps. But it is possible. And it makes all the difference in creating a life that looks the way you want it to. You can live from who you are, everywhere, with everyone, every time.
First, it starts with you.
Are you ready to know yourself so well you can live from the core of who you are? Everywhere? With everyone? Every time?
When you are you’ll be amazed at the sense of confidence, contentment, freedom, and fulfillment you experience.
Are you ready?
