Success in Life and Business has a lot to do with Our Relationships with People.
Are you thinking Why David Adeleke aka Davido would raise 200 Million in 48 hours and Some Celebrities would struggle to raise Money to Save their Lives for a life-threatening Surgery for Months and struggle to raise the complete money.
People with Good relationships with others tend to achieve more in life than those without good relationships with others.
Like today we will focus on business and sales instead of the romantic aspect of relationships.
Don’t forget building relationships is like opening a Bank Account You cannot open an account that you have not made a deposit inside, you cannot withdraw anything from an empty Bank Account.
One fact we must Understand is this , it is not Everyone you want to build a relationship with that would accept , some will and Some will not , so be ready to move on to the Next.
Everyone cannot like you, so stop trying to get everyone to like you or do business with you.
Stop Expecting Everyone to Wish you a Happy Birthday or Happy Wedding Anniversary in your special moments , it is abnormal to Expect it from Everyone.
But you connect with those who are attracted to connect with you and go with the flow.
Here are 5 Ways To Attract Relationships For Success in Sales and Business.
1. Define what you want
2. Believe it is Possible
3. Use the Law of Attraction
4. Take Action To Manifest Your Dreams to Reality.
