On The Daily

“I go back to consistent daily interactions. So if I want to strengthen the relationship with my son or wife, what is the daily action I’m going to start to do to rekindle that? I’m going to go back to that and it will lead to more.”

-John Norlin

We all know the importance of relationships. We must work hard to not only to establish them but also maintain them. As Co-founder and podcaster of Character Strong John Norlin mentions in today’s quote that the only way we can strengthen the relationship with anyone is to have consistent daily interactions with them. Through these daily actions we rekindle and strengthen the bond within each of our relationships.

In order to build better habits within those relationships said that these 7 ways can do just that:

  1. Become a great listener
  2. Ask the right questions
  3. Pay attention to the whole person
  4. Remember things that are important to others
  5. Be consistent and manage emotions
  6. Be open and share when the time is right
  7. Be genuine, confident, humble, trustworthy, positive and fun

The trick is this: these 7 should be what you use to rekindle each of your relationships each and every day, not just utilized once in a while. Your relationships expect you to show up and be present all the time. These 7 ways will get you there.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your relationship skills?
