What is the topic of our presentation today?
James we are going to talk about: The Quality of your Relationships Determine the Quality of your Life
How does the quality of your relationship determine the quality of your life?
The idea that relationships are the main ingredient in deterring the quality of your life was first propagated by the legendary life coach Tony Robins and many other authors have expanded on this concept. This podcast will attempt to present some ideas as to how you could enhance the quality of your relationships to improve the quality of your life.
How do you enhance the quality of your relationships?
If the quality of your life depends upon the quality of your relationships, then some guidelines for enabling you to improve the quality of your relationships can be helpful.
What is the most effective way to start building relationships?
Be Open. This means that you open the gates of your life, let new people come into your life as you greet them with an open mind, because each individual represents a whole new world of reality which will open new avenues for you. However, it would not happen unless you tear down walls, because you are not any better than someone and someone is no better than you. Therefore don’t build walls around you. The walls instead of protecting you will hurt you in the long run. Instead build bridges for people to cross over to your side and become a part of your world.
What is the main ingredient in a relationship?
The mindset is the main ingredient in a relationship because how you perceive someone you have a relationship with creates a mindset that enables you to relate to them by either building bridges or erecting walls that becomes your frame of reference for the relationship.
How do you enhance a growing relationship?
By giving value to other which means that instead of thinking what is in it for you, think what can you give to this relationship to nurture it? You can be assured that by giving to the relationship without expectation of return, you will receive in abundance. You can nurture a relationship by listening, picking them up when they are down and being totally present with them. However, it would not happen unless you are accepting of yourself which means that if you live in alignment with what you think is right, you become more accepting of yourself. When you have the mindset that you are at ease with yourself it gives emotional stability, which in turn enable you to create lasting relationships.
In what way can you enhance the quality of your life?
Sharing yourself with someone you care about makes life and relationship a lot more fun and your hard times a bit easier. As the Swedish proverb suggests, shared joy is a double the joy: shared sorrow is half the sorrow. However, it would not happen unless you are genuine in the sense that you do not analyze a relationship because a growing relationship can only be nurtured by genuineness. Few things are as powerful as genuine communication from the heart to heart
Do you have concluding comments?
Being authentic in building bridges and giving without expectations, can build lasting relationship that will transform your life, because you will be in alignment with yourself, filling your life with joy and happiness.
