Are you looking at your life, wondering why you haven’t gotten the promotion you’ve been waiting more than enough time for? Or why your business isn’t taking off? Do you sometimes wonder why people seem to come and go without building any real relationship with you?
Well, Zig Ziglar proposes that in order to build a successful career, we need to have just as much — if not more — success in our relationships. That your relationships are healthy enough that you could come home to your spouse and take a position of humility and that it would be received.
For some of you, if you approached your spouse with humility and culpability, it might be received with anger, bitterness and discomfort.
If this is you, there is a chance to make things better. This won’t happen with a one-time effort, but you will be able to make radical change in small increments. It starts with putting an end to blaming those around you and starting to take responsibility.
I realize there are many, many times when there are others to blame because they did you wrong with ill intent. Meaning you truly are a victim.
