Relationships. Relationships are at the core of everything you do. Want better teamwork – build better relationships. Want a more successful business – focus on relationships. Want a happier family – nurture your relationships. Want to be healthier – cultivate relationships. Want a fulfilling life – yep, you know what the answer is.
Relationships are literally everything to us. If we put our time and effort into creating strong ones, they will give us what we need. And it doesn’t have to be complicated, it just requires us to slow down and take a close look at how we are treating the people in our lives.
While we are all different, what we want, and need are still similar. Here are three tips for improving your relationships that you can do for any person in your life.
Make them feel seen.
Make them feel understood.
Make them feel appreciated.
At the end of the day, we all just want people to see and accept us for who we are, to take the time to understand where we are coming from and validate our opinions (even if they don’t agree with them), and to feel like we have value and worth.
