More Value = More Money (cont.)
This video is all about your social interactions and relationships. Before watching the video please analyse this Eleanor Roosevelt quote and think about the answers to these questions.
"Great minds discuss ideas;average minds discuss events;small minds discuss people."-Eleanor Roosevelt
What do you discuss or focus on most of the time?What kind of things do you want to discuss; great, average, or small things?Who are you discussing these topics with?
Steven Covey says that “ Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.”
Go ahead and write down a list of all your friends and relationships. All of them. No cheating. Take however long you need.
From this list of relationships, decide whether each person is (E) an engine (someone who adds value to your life) or an (A)anchor (someone that drains your energy, time and/or money, without giving anything in return).
If the person is a positive influence and is an engine, try to actively think of ways you can help them further their ambitions as well as see how you might work together on projects.
If they are a negative influence and an anchor on your life, I would highly recommend you remove them from your life.
If they are not for you, then they are against you.
Not everyone we meet is on the same path as us, and that’s ok.
Only spend time with people that sincerely value your time.
