2020 Resolutions? The most important things in life are… your relationships!
In our western world where career, entitlement, money, and families are important. We tend to forget that happiness is reachable by simply having strong bonds with other human beings. How to build them: time. There is no secret. I realized after being in San Francisco that the secret to have good friends is time. I couldn’t feel as happy with someone I met in San Francisco 5 months vs someone I know from Chalampé for 20 years. Second, quality relationships are difficult to maintain. How to maintain it; it starts with YOU. YOU DO the effort, YOU call them, YOU shut up and listen, YOU try to help, YOU are here for them when things go wrong. Good relationships work if there is a win-win situation. If you or your friends don’t benefit from the relationship, the relationship breaks apart. Sounds familiar? The problem? Too many of us are waiting that the other is doing the efforts, and too many of us losing the motivation to reach out. So sad!
The Harvard medical school did the longest study on adult development in history.
” 80 % of the people of the study said they wanted to be rich
50 % of the people said they wanted to be wealthy. “
What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken. As the director of the 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.”
Is this the secret for a fulfilling life? You know the answer. Stop chasing the wrong things. Don’t forget to put your relationships a priority for 2020 resolutions 😉
Good relationships keep us happier and healthier – period.
