Today was something special. He’s learning an important aspect of life; how to establish long lasting relationships in his personal and business life!
“Mr. Roddy, I’m starting to realize you eventually have to make a living by doing things you love and focus on building loving relationships with your family.”
I listened to him share his thoughts, I wanted to jump up and down and give him several ‘high fives.’ I reminded calm and asked him a few more questions and listen.
“Bob, how did you come to these conclusions?”
“Mr. Roddy, I’ve been watching Mrs. Roddy and you for twelve years. It’s starting to make sense to me. Most of my struggles in my relationship with my fiancée are results of my perceptions of what I thought a man should be.
“What made you reconsider your approach?” “I remembered the conversations we had when I was young. “You always shared with me that when our thoughts about life cause us pain they are signals for us to look within so that we can examine our thoughts, behavior and actions towards others.”
“What has cause you pain in your relationship with your fiancée?” “I was valuing things and money more than relationships.”
Wouldn’t all of us love to grow by learning the art of establishing long-lasting relationships?
Don’t you feel knowing that when relationships are established the sky is the unlimited in our personal lives and in business?
What will we value when it’s our time to leave this earthly body?
Would it be things we own, our net worth, names on buildings, or would it be the relationship we’ve established with love ones?”
