“The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.” -Tony Robbins
The most important foundation for living a great and happy life lies in the depth of your relationships. Great relationships lead to great life experiences and feel good moments.
So it’s pretty important to know how you can rebuild and strengthen your relationships.
In fact, it’s been proven by research that you’ll need some sort of relationship to make things happen in every stage of life. And if you have a great relationship? There’s virtually nothing that can pull you down or defeat you from getting what you want.
What if you have shallow relationships? Well, it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or successful, you’ll eventually end up being alone, and loneliness kills.
So, if relationships are that important and essential to building a great life, why don’t more people dedicate their greatest strength to it?
Great question indeed and the answer may surprise you.
You see, the bitter truth is most people never how. So they end up sabotaging themselves and the people around them
“In order to get to the next level of whatever you’re doing, you must think and act in a wildly different way than you were before.” – Grant Cardone
The solution? Well, let’s get to that in detail.
If you want to rebuild and strengthen your relationships, here are the key things you need to put in place.
Give more than you take
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” – Winston S. Churchill
A great mentor once said: ” I turned down lots of people because they are constantly asking without showing they care about me or my services.”
Can I be sincere with you for a moment? If you want to develop great relationships that can pave the way to a happier and rich life, you’ve to be willing to give more than you take in every aspect of your relationship.
So I want you to reflect on a scale of 1 to 10, how much are you giving to your friends, family, business partner, or even people in your day-to-day life right now? If you score less than 7 then I want you to start thinking about how you can improve.
Giving also means caring, or making the first move.
Be the first to:
Start a conversation
Highlight and solve a problem
Tell them how much you care about them
Tell them how much you miss them
Request a hangout
And most of all be the first to thank them.
If you give and show enough care for your loved ones, then you can start enjoying the gems of life that most people only dream of: a happier life, full of more love and is more fulfilling.
The problem with most people is that they’re not committed enough toward their promises and this can break a relationship.
To rebuild it, develop the mindset of staying committed to every promise you make to your loved ones. Yes, it can be very difficult but if you work toward staying committed no matter what; you will enjoy a life of love and trust from people.
Commitment is not doing it when you feel like it; commitment is doing it when you don’t feel like doing it. It’s like a bride and a groom making that bold pronunciation “For better or for worse” on their wedding day.
Most relationships break apart when the worst happens and that’s not commitment.
So starting from now, I want you to reflect on every little and big promise you’ve made to your loved ones and start staying committed to them.
Look away from perfection
“When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” – Donald Miller.
To rebuild and strengthen any relationship, you have to be willing to look away from perfection and instead learn how to accept it for what it is. Because people are not always going to turn out the way we want them to; sometimes, they will hurt us, lie to us, or even cheat on us.
When this happens, your first priority is not to throw in the towel and look away; you have to learn how to accept it for what it is and that’s true unconditional love.
“The measure we gave was the measure we got back.” – Alcoholics Anonymous
The amount of energy, care, and focus you dedicate to making your relationships better will be the amount that is proportionate to the level of relationships you’ll have.
Be willing to invest in yourself, learn how to communicate with your partners and loved ones, show enough care, and always give more than you receive.
If you do this, you’ll open the door to unlimited love, joy, and happiness and although we will come through some bad times, you can rest assured you won’t have to go through it all alone.
Use these tips to rebuild and strengthen your relationships.
Remember what the Dalai Lamai said:
“People exist to be loved; objects exist to be used. The world is in chaos because these things are the other way round.”
Live your life the right way around for happier and fulfilling life experience.
