Lifted: Motivation > Relationships
The art of being alone is a diligent practice of avoidance, selfishness and denial. Not being alone as in being single or with out a mate, but the kind of alone that causes one not to see the value of building lasting partnerships with others. I believe success seeks out those who have a synergistic mindset. People who can merge their personality with the ways of others to produce a masterpiece. Sometimes its about finding the right fit for your puzzle piece. Yes, Its true, not everyone is a people person but i even the Grinch had his little side kick dog.
The struggle with relationship is distinguishing between which one’s add an which one’s subtract. I view relationships like arithmetic. While you may have many friends and acquaintances, like a complex math equation, who gets first priority is all based on who has the parentheses. Who have you valued more than any one else and is that person worth that place in your life?
Personally speaking not all of my relationships yield me the same results. Some relationships are simply entertainment and may not add significant substance to the overall success of who i am. Now, having a good laugh with a friend is vitally important however would you have wanted to spend your life laughing or laughing while accomplishing your goals and realizing your dreams?
At the end of the day you want your life to trend vertically. Your commitment to a great life gives you the responsibility to build those fledgling relationships or discard the partnerships that make your dreams vague and obscure. You choose!
Simply put. “No man is an Island” however you must choose wisely what individuals you let accompany you on this island vacation called life.
