Merry Xmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Winter Solstice – quite frankly, it doesn’t matter to me what you celebrate this time of year. December is a month where we can all come together and celebrate humanity – regardless of what you believe, or don’t believe. If you are a business woman or mom who doesn’t work outside the home, or live your life combining work and a marriage and family life, you have been reading these newsletters as a way to enrich your life.
Since we are in the midst of the holiday season, now is as good a time as any to thank you for allowing me to become a part of your life’s journey while sharing my relationship advice with you. Throughout the year I discuss many relationship tools needed for your success in business and your relationships, but there is without a doubt one essential tool – above all others – that you absolutely must have for this success – and that is the ability to relate. Do not be fooled by how simple this sounds. Many marriages and relationships crumble because couples, who once were emotionally connected, lose the ability to relate to each other somewhere along the way. Businesses that were the flagship in their industries lose the ability to relate to their customers, and no longer know what they need. As you can see, the ability to relate to the people in our lives is critical to our happiness in our marriage and success in our business. During the upcoming ye ar I will continue to provide you with my expert relationship advice that will show you how to best relate to the people in your business and personal life. But for now, I know you are busy in your continued preparations for the holidays, so I will keep this really short.
Many people confuse telling people and their customers what you think they should want as relating to them. Nothing could be further from the truth. Relating to the people in our world is based upon our ability to connect with them on a level which is meaningful to both them and us. As we race towards the end of 2011, it is my sincere wish and hope for you in the new year that you remember that people – and the ability to relate to them- in both our marriages and our businesses – is the most important tool we must have for success in our business and our relationships.
Happy Holidays and may the New Year be one filled with many people with whom you can relate to!
