Top 6 Tips for Building a Relationship

Tips for Building Relationships

 

There are some things we can do in all our relationships to build and maintain strong bonds. This is true because, underneath all our differences, likes, dislikes, and biases, we are all human beings who desire social connections. The tips below should be used in all your relationships to form bonds that will stand the test of time. So, how do you start building a relationship?

How to Build the Ultimate Relationship:

 

1) Be appreciative

This might mean different things in different relationships, but the overarching sentiment is the same. When they do something kind for you or take the time to support you when you need it, be appreciative – acknowledge their care and concern.

 

2) Spend time together

It can be hard to find time to get together when we are all so busy, but it’s important for all relationships. If necessary, set up a standing appointment so that it just automatically happens. This makes sure it happens because you will get used to scheduling other things around it.

 

3) Communicate honestly

Sometimes you may be tempted to bend the truth to avoid conflict, but your relationships will be much healthier overall if honesty is held in high regard. It’s possible, to be honest without being brutal. Choose your words carefully and be as diplomatic as possible, while still sharing your feelings openly and honestly.

 

4) Forgive faults

Forgive them for their eccentricities and annoying habits, and also forgive yourself for any mistakes you make. We all have faults and shortcomings that we bring with us into any relationship. Sometimes to keep the relationship strong, we need to just come to the conclusion that their presence in our lives is more important than the little habits that drive us crazy.

 

5) Support them

Intermingled between all the good times, there will surely be times when the other person could use a helping hand. Whether it’s helping them move, taking them dinner when a loved one has passed or being a sounding board for a difficult decision, any relationship worth having requires some TLC. And the other person deserves it, just as you do when you need it from them.

 

6) Do unto others

It’s just a good idea to always live by the Golden Rule, but it’s especially true in relationships that are important to us. If you wonder if something you might do is likely to upset them, chances are it’s better to talk to them about it first. Wouldn’t you want them to do the same for you? It’s better to err on the side of caution.

 

So, there you have it. The 6 Tips for Building a Relationship. It’s not hard to do, you just need to do it, just like Nike says.  Honestly, here is my 2 cents worth. You can’t have a relationship unless you build it. And to build it, sometimes you have to listen to your instincts. Not everyone in the world is going to be your friend. That’s ok, you don’t NEED tons of friends. But you do need to have good relationships with those few that you really like. What’s the point anyway if it’s not a good relationship? Take the time to build them, appreciate them, find them. It will enrich your life so much.

And on that note, you can contact me anytime you need help in building your relationships. I also have a wonderful course on Relationship Marketing. You can access that here —> Relationship Marketing.

Purposeful Life – Do You Have This?

Purposeful Life – Do You Have This?

Living a Purposeful Life

 

Do you find that some days you wish you lived a different life? Boy, I hear you and that is a loaded question! Perhaps you find yourself wishing that you were Oprah, or Kim Kardashian or maybe Jennifer Aniston. It isn’t unusual to wish you lived a different life or were someone else. If you find that you have days where you feel unsatisfied or discontented, then it may be time to think about what you can do turn your life around. So, how do you live a Purposeful Life?

  • Find out what you’re really passionate about. Check out my free guide on how to create passion.
  • Dream about what you’d love to do, something that would make your heart soar. Try making a Dream Board.
  • Stop trying to be like someone else. Do you…always!

So tell me, what’s different about your life and that of those you admire and who inspire you? At first glance, it may be that you think it’s money or fame. Often you will look at what possessions they have or how much money is in their bank account. Instead look deeper and make a list of the qualities that you admire. It may be that you are inspired by their skills, knowledge, generosity or temperament. What is it for you?

Purposeful

What do they have that you don’t? They have passion and live a purposeful life. They have something that they care about and are filled with a desire to make a difference; not just for themselves but for others. Have you ever noticed that about the people you admire? You know, they don’t have to be famous. It could be your child’s teacher, a favorite store manager or even your next door neighbor.

Your life can be fulfilling. Living a life of passion and purpose is possible for everyone. You do not need to be rich, famous or highly educated. You only think you do! But, is that what you really think?

 

To find your passion and purpose you need to discover what you really want. Don’t just consider material objects, look deeper at lifestyle, relationships, your health, and emotions.

Passion

passion [pash-uh n] Spell Syllables Synonyms Examples Word Origin See more synonyms on Thesaurus.com noun 1. any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, as love or hate. 2. strong amorous feeling or desire; love; ardor. 3. strong sexual desire; lust. 4. an instance or experience of strong love or sexual desire. 5. a person toward whom one feels strong love or sexual desire. 6. a strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything: a passion for music. 7. the object of such a fondness or desire: Accuracy became a passion with him.

 

For a positive difference to take place you don’t need to give up your job and follow your calling 100% of the time. You can start small and paint your masterpiece or write your novel in your spare time. This will allow you to begin to feel the benefits of doing what you love and feeling the positive effects and changes while still working and earning an income. Did you think about that? You can do both, so many people do.

 

Not everyone wants to change the world. It may be that you want to make a difference by volunteering at the local homeless shelter. Your desire to bring about positive change in the lives of others, less well off than yourself, will bring about an enormous change in your life. You will experience the joy of giving and in return feel a sense of satisfaction. In addition, you’ll probably pick up new skills, make new friends and connections and discover other changes you want to make in your own life.

Success and the Four Secrets

Success and the Four Secrets

The Four Secrets to Achieving Success

 

Everyone wants to be successful. Focus generally tends to be towards career success. However, personal or life success is also important.

Success is about achieving goals. After all, if you don’t have a goal then how can you be successful?

So what are the four secrets that can help you be successful?

 

Set Goals for Success

It is vital that you set goals for your personal and professional lives. These will provide a target for you to aim for. Once you’ve listed your goals, then write down the steps you are going to take to achieve them.

Add who or what can help you to your list. Find an accountability partner, mentor or coach who can help and support you. There are some terrific mentors in the online world. I can definitely help you with that!

Setting Goals

Remember That Your Personal and Professional Lives Are Inter-dependent

You may think that your career goals are totally separate from your personal goals. However, they are inter-dependent. Your career relies on your well-being, impacts on your family and relationships, your health and happiness.

Your happiness, relationships, and health are affected by your career. If you’re not happy at work or doing a job you love then it will have an impact on your emotional and physical well-being, as well as affecting other areas of your personal life.

To be successful in one area you need to create success in the other. Sounds a bit strange but let’s take it one step further.

Find Your Passion and Purpose

If your personal and professional lives are inter-dependent, then to be successful in them you will need to discover your passion and purpose. By discovering these you will create the determination to succeed.

This will enhance your creativity, spark inspiration and allow you to harness the power of flow in your activities.

purpose

Ask yourself what you really want to do with your life. What do you want your legacy to be?

Where do you want to be 5 or 10 years down the road?

What exactly is making you happy?

Don’t Focus on the Money

While many people consider amassing wealth to be a sign of success, that should not be your end goal or sole success indicator.

Instead focus on your emotions, lifestyle, and well-being. What will your life look and feel like when you have successfully achieved your goals? How will your family and friends feel?

Why not create a vision board with words, quotes, and pictures showing your life as a success?

When thinking about your professional success, consider how you will know you’ve succeeded. What will your position be?

How will you be making an impact in your company and in the wider community?

What will your work day look like?

Think about work/life balance and the effect on your family and relationships with friends. How will your new role or business affect your life, health, and happiness?

While success can mean different things to different people, one thing all definitions have in common is that success is measured by achieving goals that make you feel positive emotions, for example, happiness and achievement.

You will find the greatest success comes when you use your passions to create your goals in life and work.

Happiness and How to Achieve It

Happiness and How to Achieve It

How you can achieve real happiness – really? What is real happiness anyway? Let’s discuss this below.

 

Are you happy?

While you may answer yes, of course, I’m happy, consider the question further. Are you really happy? Does your life fill you with joy? Do you feel well? Are you excited by the thought of what each day holds? When considering happiness there are a lot of questions that can be asked. Perhaps one of the first ones you will think of is, ‘What is happiness?’

 

Happiness is a state of being. Positive psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky describes happiness as a positive emotion that not only means you experience the emotions of well-being, joy, and contentment but these emotions are also “combined with a sense that one’s life is good, meaningful and worthwhile.”

happiness

So for you to experience real happiness it appears that you need to create a life with meaning. So does your life have meaning? Do you feel that it is worthwhile?  And If not, why not?

These are important questions to ask yourself about happiness

 

If you feel happy but your life is lacking something, then it may be that you aren’t experiencing a full state of real happiness. Creating change could take your life from mediocre to amazing and allow you to experience the full effects of real happiness.

So how can you create this “real happiness“?

 

Discover your passion and purpose. Make these an intrinsic part of your everyday life. If you’re wondering how to find them then take a piece of paper or notebook and answer the following questions. Do it now, before you forget!

  1. What do want to do with your life?
  2. How do you want to feel every day?
  3. What do you enjoy doing?

 

List those things that make you feel excited, creative, inspired and energized.

What are you good at?

List those things that make you feel creative, energized, inspired and that you lose yourself in when you are doing them.

 

What do you want your legacy to be?

 

  • When you think back on your life, what do you want to be remembered for?
  • Who are your role models? Why?
  • What are your big dreams and goals?
  • How can you achieve your big dreams and goals?
  • Who or what can help you change your life for the better?

 

As you answer the questions you will begin to find a pattern in your answers and recurrent themes. These can help you identify what you need to do and change to create real happiness in your life.

If you consider that your life needs to be worthwhile and meaningful as Lyubomirsky says, then you need to consider what you can do to create those in your own life. You need to find your passion and purpose. (Go ahead and check out the link, it’s to my Passion Planner Freebie) When you have found those and embedded them into your life then you will find “real happiness”.

Life – Give It Your Best  – I Know You Can

Life – Give It Your Best – I Know You Can

Live your best life, huh? Doesn’t everyone?

 

Are you living your best life? Are you really? Do you think that you should be living the American Dream? It may be that you consider the best life as one with fame and fortune, perhaps with the addition of fast cars and globe-trotting. However, living your best life is not about the American Dream, fast cars, globe-trotting, fame, fortune or all that mumbo-jumbo JUNK! Yes, you heard me correctly there.

Because…

Your best life is about YOU living a life of happiness and success. While the specific elements of your best life will be different to someone else’s, there will be common threads. Yep… And what are those elements that will help you create and live your best life?

Here is a list of them:

 

Work/Life Balance

For most people, work is essential to earning an income. It’s used to provide a roof over their head and food on the table. Some people are lucky enough to have enough money that they don’t actually need to work. What did you say? Don’t HAVE to WORK? Well isn’t that nice?

Whether you do or don’t need to work is not the problem. The problem occurs when work takes over your life and you find that everything you do revolves around it. If you find that you spend too many hours working and not enough resting or socializing, then you are in for a BIG surprise.

Here’s what it comes down to:

First, it begins to negatively impact your life, then your health and then your precious relationships.

It’s important that you make sure that you have a work/life balance that allows you to enjoy time with family and friends, as well as outside interests to help you round out your life.

Goals

You know that goals are important, but do you set them? Tell me the right answer here, please. First, you need goals in your personal and business life, otherwise, you have NO direction. By having them you can create positive change.

If you’re drifting along and not feeling inspired, then now is the time to change that. Yes, because this will help to solve all the issues that you do have in your life.

 

Solve me these riddles ➡

  1. What do you want from life?
  2. What makes you feel excited or inspired?
  3. When you look back on your life what do you want to feel proud of?

Think about what you want and then write down the steps you can take to achieve it. It’s really not that hard. Just pick up a pen or pencil and a piece of paper. Go on…I’ll wait until you have them. Go now because I’m waiting!!  😉

Ok, now  ➡  ➡

What would your best life look and feel like? Use your imagination and dream a little. Got it?  ➡ NICE…

Relationships

Everyone needs relationships. Right? They provide connection and support. Look at the people in your life who don’t serve any purpose apart from annoyance or toxicity. By this I mean, consider all those who take your time, energy and positivity but give nothing in return apart from stress and anxiety.

Come on, I know you have some in your group. If you can remove them from your social circle, do it, NOW! If they don’t have the time or space for you in your life, they will no longer affect you negatively. But, and that’s a BIG BUT,  removing them completely isn’t possible, then plan ways to make sure that you can interact with them without negativity or feeling used. Because they will and you know this!

Why am I telling you this? Because you really don’t NEED them in your life so why have them?

life

Mihail_hukuna / Pixabay

You need to nurture and develop those relationships that bring you happiness, love, friendship, and support. Those relationships that involve give and take. These are the people you want to have a relationship with now, don’t you?

Here’s a good idea:

Consider hiring a life coach or a mentor to help you create yours. This could be one of the best investments and/or relationships you make in your life. Try it, what could it hurt?

Health

Everybody knows this. Your health is essential to having a great life. While you may have serious health issues you can manage them in a way that will enable you to create and live your best life. Make sure that you eat healthily and drink plenty of fluids. Regular exercise will help you with fitness and also get the endorphins (feel-good hormones) flowing. Talk to your doctor about scheduling an appointment to check out how you’re doing. I did this today, as a matter of fact. And so should you…come on now…it will only take a few minutes of your time to make that phone call.

Happiness

Be happy! You CAN choose that you know. Of course, there will be times when things happen that cause unhappiness, but these periods need only be temporary. If you plan for them and have strategies in place that can help you find the positive and regain a sense of control you won’t go into that depression spiral that so many people go through these days.

 

I’m no expert, I can only tell you from experience, that you can wallow in self-pity but you’re going to be the only one at that party, ya know?

You are the master of your destiny and happiness. YES, YOU! You have the power to control your feelings. Don’t give that power away to others. YOU ARE A POWERFUL HUMAN BEING! Use that power to your benefit.

Passion

This One Thing Can Transform Your Life

This One Thing Can Transform Your Life

This One Thing Can Transform Your Life from Dull to Fabulous

 

Transformation, really, you say? If your life seems dull and boring, then it is time to turn it around. Yes, I’m talking to you! You sitting there trying to be all pouty and sad. You don’t have to settle for dull and humdrum, instead, you can choose to go after fun and fabulous!  Come on, a little fun is NOT going to hurt you. Besides, you know that old saying, “All work and no fun”? I don’t remember who said that right now, but that’s not the point.

Listen up…

So what is it that can completely transform your life for the better?

 

  • Is it money?
  • Perhaps a life partner?
  • What about fame?

 

While all of those will change your life, often for the better, there is an often over-looked something that will create an incredible and positive change in your life. Gasp!!

“There is no fulfillment in things whatsoever. And I think one of the reasons that depression reigns supreme amongst the rich and famous is some of them thought that maybe those things would bring them happiness.

But what, in fact, does is having a cause, having a passion. And that’s really what gives life’s true meaning.” Ben Carson.

As you can see from the quote above a cause, a passion and therefore, a purpose is what will give you a life transformed from dull to amazing. It won’t require you to spend thousands of dollars or go to extreme lengths. No, not really.

Instead, it will require some:

  1. Soul searching
  2. Thinking
  3. Goal setting
  4. Planning
  5. Action taking

Listen in here:  One Thing Can Transform Your Life from Dull to Fabulous

You can have all the latest gadgets, fast cars, new clothes, holidays and top job but unless you are passionate about what you do and why you do it, they will feel worthless and hold little meaning for you. They may make you feel excited and happy in the beginning but over time they lose significance and no longer have the power to engender positive emotions. Am I right? Just think of everything you do have…is it making YOU happy?

If you want to find fulfillment and happiness, then it’s time to focus on what you can do to create it in your life. Instead of focusing on material things consider what you can do to create a difference in the world. It doesn’t have to be massive and impact the entire population of the Earth. It may be something that you feel passionately about that is local to you.

By taking up a cause or a passion project that is bigger than you, it allows you to start making an impact on the world around you. By giving yourself to this passion you will receive energy, positivity, excitement, and happiness.

It may be that your passion is to write children’s books. Your books would then inspire a new generation of children to read and learn. You would be creating a legacy with the power to affect future generations.

Don’t let life pass you by. You don’t have to accept a miserable or mundane existence. You have the power to create the life you want. You really do!  So, find your passion and purpose, follow it and create a life of joy, excitement, challenge, and adventure that can inspire others.

 

 

Create a legacy you’re proud to leave to your fellow humans. Do the thing, your best thing!

Why You Should Find Your Passion

Why You Should Find Your Passion

Why You Should Find Your Passion and Follow It. How does your life make you feel? Now, do you wake each morning looking forward to the day ahead? Or do you wish you could just bury your head under the covers and stay there? Your outlook will depend on many things but one of the most important factors that can change your day-to-day life is passion.

 

So What is Passion?

 

Passion is an extreme and positive emotion. A strong and compelling desire for someone or something that inspires you and creates happiness. While it can be an emotion felt towards another person, here we are looking at THE passion for life and work.

 

Why Do You Need It?

 

“Without it, you don’t have energy, without energy you have nothing.” Donald Trump. A quote he has used many times in his career.

 

Without it in your life, you will probably find that your days often feel dull and tiresome. There may be a sense of something being missing or lacking. You might also feel tired and depressed. This can be the result of the negative energy surrounding you due to the lack of passion and the positive energy it brings.

 

Finding your passion for life can create enormous change. You will find that you look forward to the day ahead and actually want to get out of bed in the morning. You will have more energy and focus. Additionally, you’ll feel more creative and inspired to follow your dreams and create those goals you’ve been meaning to accomplish. Don’t you think so?

 

Your passion for life will also help you create better relationships with others including family, friends, and colleagues. They will respond to your positive energy and enthusiasm.

 

Of course, your passion in life might also be a way for you to create it in your work also. This can result in a huge shift in your life as you will not only be living the life you love but you will also be undertaking work that you love as well. Wouldn’t it feel amazing to earn an income from doing something that inspires you and brings you joy?

 

Finding passion for something can create an enormous shift in your life and emotions. It can help you to live a fulfilling life where every day is full of purpose, energy, commitment, and achievement. If life feels dull, uninspiring and leaves you with little energy and focus then why not look for that something, a cause, hobby or career, that feels right and sparks joy within you? You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes to you, your relationships and possibly, your finances. Now THAT would create a whole NEW interest in PASSION, wouldn’t you say?

Let me know how you feel about creating some passion in your life. If you need a little inspiration, you can always give me a call!

But…before you begin to set your goals, you need to identify what your best life looks and feels like.

There are lots of ways to do this. Below are a few ideas you could try:

  1. You could write it down being as descriptive as possible and using the present tense as if you are living your best life right now.
  2. Or you could create a vision board with lots of pictures, words, and quotes.
  3. If you really want to attract a successful outcome you could do both. Try it and see what works best for you.

One important thing to remember about visualizing your best life is that it needs to inspire you and to be fulfilling. Nelson Mandela said, “There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

So dream big.

Think about your life purpose.

What makes you happy? Inspires you?

What legacy do you want to leave?

Finding your passion and purpose is the crucial element to living your best life.

Once you have found them you can then set your goals and create your plans.

Goal setting is important to creating your best life because it provides the following benefits... Click To Tweet

Optimism: as you set goals, create plans and implement them you will see and feel yourself creating change in your life. These changes are positive and achieved by taking action. Each step is another towards your goal. You will feel proud of yourself as you achieve goals, reach milestones and see the changes you have made. These positive emotions create optimism for the future and help build strength and resilience to cope with change and any challenges you may encounter along the way.

Wellbeing: taking control of your life, deciding what you want to do with it and what you want to feel is incredibly empowering. Instead of feeling listless, unmotivated or depressed and anxious you will begin to discover a sense of excitement, curiosity, creativity, joy, passion and purpose. As you take action these positive steps will create positive emotions and the desire to continue to progress towards your end goal. You won’t want to settle for a humdrum existence when you have found the power to create the best life for you.

All of these positive emotions will reduce stress, anxiety and even depression. They will also affect your physical as well as your mental and emotional wellbeing.

Control: an often overlooked result of goal setting is control. By taking control of your life, envisioning the future you want through following your passion and purpose, you are acknowledging that life doesn’t just happen but can be shaped by you.

Your life is in your hands. You have the power to shape it to what you would like.

However, to create your best life you first need to discover your passion and purpose. Only then can you set your goals and plan how to achieve it. Without those goals, you reduce your chances of success as you won’t be able to recognize it when it happens. So…what are YOU going to do?

Let me know in the comments below, I would love to hear what you have to say.
