The Key To Success

Treasure your relationships, not your possessions.

Anthony J. D´Angelo

You can always rebuild new wealth and possessions!
There are many examples that show exactly that. Donald Trump for instance.
His company has been broke 6 times, be he always manaegd to build up his wealth again.

But how do people like Donald Trump do that?

It´s dues to their relationships and their vast network.
Those people know to whom to talk and whom to ask for help if they are in trouble.
People like that have connections they can rely and build on.

How to build a strong network

Everybody know that relationships are the cornerstone to being successful.
Nowadays you need to have the right connections to be successful.
To get into an elite university or to get a well-paid job you either need to pay a whole lot of money
or have to know the right people that pull on the right strings.
But how can you build such relationships when you don´t come from a rich, prominent family?
Is that even possible?

Yes, it very well is duable!
I will explain why you have the same foundation for building valuable relationships than everybody else,
including the rich and prominent.

Remove toxic people from your life

The first thing you need to do to win more friends is to improve yourself.
There is a saying by Tim Ferris that: “You are the average of the five people you most associate with.
This means that if you only surround yourself with Drama queens/kings, lazy people and cowards thats exaxctle the kind of person you eventually will evolve to be.
But on the other hand, if you only surround yourself with positive thinkers, achievers and givers, that will be the kind of person you will end up to be eventually.

This means you need to get rid of those toxic people that just pull you down.
Doing that is not only important for winning more friends,
but also for your professional success.
Because other people, possibly your partners or your boss judges you according to your environment.
Your friends, partners, relatives and family.

Since you can´t choose your family and relatives you very well can choose your friends.
Figure out what friends influence you in a good way and what friends influence you in a bad way.
Then start to break connections and reconnect with positive, successful people.

You will experience a boost in your relationships and friendships within a short period of time!
