6 Steps To Being A Better Friend

I was recently talking to a good friend of mine and we were talking about relationships and friendships. The conclusion of that conversation was that you have to mentally take the time to invest emotionally in relationship to keep them alive.

As I walked away from that conversation with my friend, I jotted a few things down and taking notesthis is what I came up with in order to go deeper into interpersonal relationships and to become a better friend…

We must be reliable as friends

When we think of friends we usually think of someone I can count on in rough times and in good times. It’s a level trust to know that this person has got my back. We are in this boat together. Trust in friendship can be “broken” quickly, especially if there is no reliability in the relationship. If you lose the other person’s confidence in you, it is difficult to restore it.

Just reach out and say hi!

We all live in a society where we are constantly “On The Grind”. We are accomplishing our goals that we have set forth in the beginning of the year and time is passing us by. I totally get that because I am guilty of it myself. We are so busy that we do not keep enough contact as a strong friendship requires. A good friend should have time for another, even if they are tired.saying hi1

We cannot wait around for the other person to call us, but we have to take initiative ourselves. Even if you live 500 miles away… find ways to overcome the distance!. Just

Tell the truth when needed!
Have we created an environment where our friends can tell us the truth or have we trained them to lie to us? A real friend will not be afraid to confront or tell you the truth when need be. We have to always lead with compassion but never allow the person you call your friend to walk in error without you as there FRIEND letting them know when they are wrong. DONT BE A YES MAN OR WOMAN…

Just tell them!
Honesty is one of the main pillars of friendship. The other must be aware that he can count on your honesty. Even if honesty may hurt the other person’s feelings… you should try to tell the truth without compromise.

Don’t crowd them

Don’t be a needy friend. That’s the friend that is always in need, Timely, Emotional, Spiritually, Financially. It can be very taxing on your relationship. If your friend wants some space to think or to be alone for a while, understand this need. There is no reason to “stick” on them, since friendship does not mean being together all the time.

This will give the necessary “breath” to your friendship, so as to appreciate more the time you spend together.

Shut Up and Quit whining!

We have all had them, that friend that is constantly whining about life. They always see quit whiningthe glass half empty and never half full. There is nothing worse than a friend who constantly whines and can’t have a normal conversation.
There are always “bad” days, but you can’t always be negative in a conversation. Instead, listen carefully to the other and have a constructive conversation.

Understand the weaknesses of your friend

Treat your friends as equal human beings, despite the years of your friendship. Takefriends image into account their weaknesses, but also your own. You need to understand their mistakes and not think that you are always right!

You are one click away from a new and exciting life…

My name is Chris Allen. I am a serious entrepreneur. I look at business opportunities, review the risk factors, discern the profit potential and then... take massive action! My first entrepreneurial journey was at the age of 9 when I took over a paper route by working out a side deal with a 12-year acquaintance (I was too young to have one). I increased the subscriptions on the route so much so that my mother had to drive because the papers were too heavy... and I got busted! I love business and business opportunities! It inspires me to see what others are doing to make money legitimately. My hope is that these videos will inspire you to discover the entrepreneur within you. Jim Rohn stated that we should be wealthy beyond our wildest dreams because there are opportunities all around us...what opportunity have you passed up?

Good Morning Billionaire..Rise and Grind..Never give more time to a CRITIC than you would give to a FRIEND. Critics are those who come against you because they have no vision or goals for themselves so they try to diminish yours. You dont have to explain to your friends and your critics will never understand so why bother and waste your time. Invest your energy and time into relationship that matter in your life ..
