10 Effective Tips For Building Better Relationships – Part 1

Human beings… lovely creatures we are, amazingly and eternally complex. A marvel, miracle, and testament to the genius of the universe, god or whoever you choose to believe in or not believe in.

Simply there is no denial about our impressive nature.

Seven deadly sins-Lust

In this post, I want to reveal to you some practical knowledge that will help you build more fulfilling relationships with everyone in your life from partners, prospects, team members, husbands, wives, fiancées, to friends, family, and the checkout girl in the grocery shop. This means more success to you in life and business.

Since we are complex biological, emotional and spiritual beings, to say that I have, or anyone else for that matter, fully mastered the skill in understanding human behavior and tapping into it would be an overstatement.

In saying that, there are easy and effective techniques that I have learned that you can start using right now to help take you to the next level in your development and business.

1. Don’t criticize, condemn, or complain

Not just people, but also a place or a thing. People are attracted to positive energies. If you are constantly criticizing, condemning and complaining, you are giving out a negative energy, and sabotaging your relationship with them.

You are also NOT adding value to people’s lives. If you have seen my video about attraction marketing, you now understand that people are attracted to value. So if you are putting this negative energy out there, you will repel people instead of attracting them!

Also, with all this negative energy out that you are pulsating, if you do criticize, condemn or complain, you will attract similar energies to your life and will bring more of which that you do not want.

What you FOCUS on, will grow and expand in your life. Now do you really want to criticize, condemn or complain?

I don’t. But I have to admit that sometimes I am caught off guard, and it’s ok… as long as I’m aware of it and stop it.

2. Smile

Yes smile! This is so simple you’re probably thinking why is he even mentioning it? This is because just a simple smile can have a very powerful effect on the other person, how they feel, and how they perceive you.

If you are like me, seeking to build great relationships with everyone (I don’t know if that is possible, but I’ll keep you posted!), then one of your ‘weapons’ would have to be a genuine and sincere smile.

Next time you go out, smile to every person you see and observe their reactions… seriously I dare you to do it!

3. Remember their name

I can’t remember where I learned this from, but I’ve heard that a person’s name is the most beautiful sound to their ear. I’ve had people that I’ve met for the very first time literally say ‘Thank You’ to me just because I’ve remembered their name!

I was surprised the first time this happened, and I realized how powerful it can be!

Do you think this person will tend to remember me from most of the other people they met that night? Do you think I’ve made a strong first impression? Do you think I’ve increased my chances of doing business or building a healthy relationship with that person?

Yes, yes and yes.

There are many ways you can use to help you remember someone’s name. For example, notice something unique about them that you can associate with the first letter of their first name.

You can also say their name about to 3 to 5 times in the first minute or so of conversation. I’ve found that this really helps in remembering the name.

If you are building a network marketing business, these tips are almost ESSENTIAL to have in your tool belt. It is a people’s business.

Quick Recap

I’ve explained the importance of having better relationships with the people around you. I’ve shared three effective techniques you can start implementing right now: don’t condemn, smile, and remember everyone’s name.

Stay tuned for Part 2 and Part 3, where I will share more of these effective and easy techniques.

Peace out!

    Hi, John,

    I appreciate your sharing something that is very practical. Your way of focusing on REPEATING that person’s name a few time during the conversation is a great strategy.

    Another way to make use of other people’s names is to introduce a new comer to the rest of the little group that you are in. By behaving as though you yourself is the host, you make the new person feel welcomed as well. This way, you have many opportunities of saying other people’s names again.

      I love this tactic as well, introducing people. Yes it does have the effect that you talked about and also in increases your attraction… meaning people will be more inclined to align with you as you are introducing everyone to everyone… increases your social status! Great tip for an example of offline attraction marketing.
