It is a truth that nobody can achieve something significant alone. Lonely heroes only exist in Hollywood movies and it’s just a myth. People, in general, are brilliant, some in their ideas, others in their talents, in their capacities and strengths but no one can say that they know everything or can do everything. Success is designed to be achieved by a group of people.
If you want to achieve something significant in your life and use your talents, abilities, and strengths, let’s discuss how relationships will take you to your next best step.
There is no secret that a team will make the dream work and that we will multiply our efforts when goals are run by a team. Thus, it is critical to relate and work well with people. Beyond having a mutual vision and the desire to achieve a goal, a relationship with others is what allows you to achieve team success.
If you look around you, we all belong to teams. Family is a team, as well as small or large businesses. If you look at those who have achieved great successes none of them did it alone. There is no doubt that connecting well with others will take you to a much higher level of achievement.
Although recognition is usually for an individual, the study of their achievements will let us see that there is a group of people behind their success.
What is your attitude towards relating positively to others? I imagine you know some people who are that “people person” which is the great ability to relate to others. They are always charming and when they arrive at meetings they are the ones who initiate conversations with everyone.
You also might know some people who lack this talent. Somehow it seems that they do not want to relate to others, maybe:
- They grew up in families where they did not have the example of positive relationships,
- They have been hurt and see others through this filter, or
- They have enough ego and think they can do it all by themselves.
Regardless of the reason why people do not relate well to others, the truth is that healthy relationships are essential for building successful teams. Plus, this is the beginning of every family, organization, business, or association.
If building healthy relationships is not your best strength, the good news is that you can develop this skill and improve your chances of success. Of course, the rational question to ask is: how can you achieve successful relationships?
The first step is to understand that the ability to relate well with others is the difference between those who achieve success and those who do not.
Understanding this first step will allow you to increase the desire to grow in this area. Moreover, recognize the impact you are making on your teams and their productivity for it will give you enough motivation to increase your ability to relate positively to others.
Today, when making an inventory between my failures and my victories, I can conclude that having successful relationships has been what has allowed me to harvest triumphs in all areas of my life; for which I am very grateful. None of those successes have happened with just my individual effort but thanks to a team effort.
At the end of the day, it isn’t experienced; it isn’t talent if we want to succeed we must learn to connect with people. And while it may seem like some people are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to turn every communication into an opportunity to have a powerful connection.
