4 Ways To Build Your Relationship

These five habits will help you foster the sort of relationships that’ll lead you to success:

1. Be Generous

The best relationships are built on a mutual desire to give value to the other person. When both parties are more focused on giving than receiving, it fosters a genuine bond that goes deeper than the value of the exchange. That bond is based on mutual trust that each of you wants what is best for the other.

Generosity takes many forms. It can be as easy as making an introduction, lending an ear, or giving the gift of your expertise.

2. Listen Well

Everyone wants to be heard and understood, which is why listening is the foundation for any meaningful relationship. Authentic listening signals that you’re genuinely interested in the other person and what he or she has to say.

Part of being a good listener is developing self-awareness and noticing if you’re truly engaged in the conversation. One of the easiest and fastest ways to be a better listener is to stop interrupting.

3. Treat Others How You Want To Be Treated

You can be as smart, talented, and ambitious as you want, but none of that matters if you have a bad reputation. Building a positive reputation takes time and is vital to building meaningful relationships.

The best way to build a stellar reputation is to consistently treat others in the same way you want to be treated. It sounds easy, but it’s surprising how few people remember this golden rule. If you need some help, focus on developing the traits of likable people. Doing so will help you to model your behavior to be aligned with the golden rule.

4. Celebrate Other's Accomplishments

Become a fan for your friends when they announce big news. Even something as simple as a quick “congratulations” on social media can show others that their accomplishments don’t go unnoticed. Of course, a phone call or in-person celebration is even better.
