The Art Of Building Relational Capitol
If you want to be successful at both home and work, start by nurturing relationships with the people that you live with. My daughter posted on FB a truthful statement:”The grass is always greener where you water it.” The meaning here is that where you spend your time shows what you value. True riches are found in great relationships. I have found that having a great time isn’t about What I am doing but with Whom I am doing it . The joy in the event is enhanced by sharing the experience. Succeed at home first. Home is where the heart is …or should be to lead an abundant life. Leading an abundant life means that you leave behind “scarcity thinking where you come from a place of lack.” Scarcity thinking is a poverty mentality about always being needful and wanting what you don’t have. Abundant thinking helps you rejoice in all that you all ready have. Thankfulness is a great way to start the day! The influence of gratitude can become contagious when you allow the joy to show in your body language starting with a simple smile. My passion is to take people from communication to connection to engagement to conversations to questions. In this technology driven age we need to go deeper faster in our relationships. Relationships ground us and give us a purpose larger than ourselves as we seek to serve others. Consider giving more than you get, contributing more than you cost, and expecting nothing in return. Alexander Pope helped temper our service excitement when he said,” Blessed are they who expect nothing, for they shall never be disappointed.” I heard a wonderful quote from the book, “A Blessing Of Tears.” The quality of our living determines the quality of our dying. May my living repay the debt of my existence. ” To have a friend…we need to BE a friend! When you feel that you KNOW and HAVE a very special friend we should then be able to tell others “We were more proud of each other than we were of ourselves.” …Now that’s relational capitol!!
