The One Business Relationship You Must Keep!

Relationships are a vital part of business. But, there is one relationship that is undervalued and critical to success—the relationship with yourself.

Why should you care about the opinions and criticisms you have of yourself? Because the way you feel about yourself and your performance always impacts the way others perceive you. You will always conduct yourself according to your beliefs, and the people you do business with will align their opinions with yours.

You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. It’s also true that you can never fool yourself. If you lack confidence and belief in yourself, others will sense it and follow suit. You simply cannot convincingly portray yourself as someone different than your mindset believes you are. Your subconscious mind won’t allow you to do so.

You are a partner of your mindset and beliefs. It’s a working relationship that always impacts your decisions, progress, and most important, the way others perceive you in the workplace. 

Think about someone you admire. What qualities do they have that have earned your admiration and respect? Often, it is self-confidence and belief in their abilities and what they do and say. In other words, they have a positive relationship with themselves.

When you admire your own qualities and abilities, you reinforce them in your subconscious and convey them to others. As a result, you create:
  • More confidence—confidence that people will notice and admire.
  • Trust—you will trust your instincts, decisions, and abilities.
  • Respect—when you respect your opinions, beliefs, and ideas, so will others.
  • Admiration—for yourself and admiration by others.
Your relationship with yourself is the most vital relationship you can focus on in your business success. Other relationships will come and go, but your confidence and belief in yourself is a relationship you cannot separate yourself from. It is the key to taking risks, making decisions, creating growth and progress, and earning the trust and admiration of others.

It is also the one thing that you can control. You cannot control others or how they will perceive you, but you can control and improve the relationship you have with yourself. Strengthen your relationship with yourself, and others will look at you differently. A healthy and confident business relationship with yourself is vital to the success you will have with others. When your self-beliefs are positive, they become a vital partner in your success. And that’s a business relationship worth keeping.
