The Importance of Relationships

Posted by georgiannasaysjustdoyou on June 14, 2011

Have you ever walked away from a conversation and realized that you did not learn anything about the person you were talking with? Was it because the person was not willing to share or because you did most of the sharing? Often we are so eager to communicate something we are excited about, want someone else to get excited about or just need to get off our chests that we do not take the time to find out what the other person is about.

Why is that important? Well, you will spend a lot of energy talking at people and getting nowhere if you do not take the time to get to know them. You might not always have a specific objective, but sometimes just getting to know someone helps you remember and be remembered.

If you are a “talker” (and yes, I know that I AM a talker), you have to work hard at “listening” especially when you have something on your mind. The people I remember most are the people who share something personal or important about themselves. I can rarely tell you what someone does for a living, but if they have shared it with me, I can likely tell you what they are passionate about.

Relationships go a long way in creating life opportunities. You don’t know when or where they will pop up, but be pro-active in developing them.

I don’t have the answers, but I always have thoughts. Won’t you share yours?
