CORDIAL RELATIONSHIPSAs human beings we lean on each other, we can't be completely self reliant or independent. We need each other to survive. So in other to progress in life you need to know how your fellow human beings think, behave and thus, how you can relate with them.In this context, Im not telling you to please people at your detriment / at your own expense but rather, know how you will be able to conduct yourself when dealing with others.That is, dont be self centered; taking actions without weighing whether it affects your fellow positively or negatively.Why think about your fellow before taking decisions which affect your own life?Because your personal life has an impact on others. SCENARIOS: When you get rich people are going to benefit, when you don't others are going to suffer. If you become a pastor or a doctor you are going to save lives and if you become an armed robber people are going to lose their lives and property. In summary. we are iterdependent.So, no matter who you are, where you are from or what you do, you are important. So why not do the right thing for everybody to benefit including yourself.Life is full of choices but before you can make the right choices, you need to think about how it affects others too. That is what I call PERFECT DECISIONS. WHY? Because no one is going to have complaints/problems about your decisions.HARD TRUTHIts not an easy task to make perfect decisions because some people are always going to try to take advantage of your concern for others. These types of people will try to manipulate you through your own decisions. SCENARIO: Letting someone use family ties, friendship or their position to alter your life. That is, tell you what to do with your life. (decide who you move with, which school you attend, your profession,etc) without being very reasonable. That is without giving you a detailed reason about why you need to accept certain advice and decisions they are taking for you. It has to make sense or you may live your life without knowing WHY, WHAT YOU ARE UP TO, AND WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT.WHY: why do you want me to take this road or path in life.SCENARIO: You want to be a doctor and you end up letting a family member divert your course without sensible reasons. You may live your life in regret, (HAD I KNOWN) HARD TRUTH is related to CORDIAL RELATIONSHIPS and PERFECT DECISIONS.ADVICE: Try to have cordial relationships and make perfect decisions but don't let anyone take advantage of itBecause you are cordial and you want to make Perfect choices, someone may use it as an advantage to destroy or alter your life using friendship, family ties or their position as an excuse. 1. So what do you do? You cut those people off your life in other to progress.2. Weigh the intentions(advice) of those who want to influence your life.3. Make sure you are not forced to take decisions about your own life. (Better you learn from your own mistakes than to end up blaming someone). 4. Your life is in your own hands.(You can't blame anyone for your mistakes).5. Weigh or think before you accept an advice even if it sounds nice at first. That is; the way of the serpent or devil. Advice is going to seem nice but if you dont think well about it, you will make the biggest mistake of your life.6. Be adventurous in a positive way.HARDEST TRUTHYou need advice.Then, you compare it with yours and then you take your own decision.Don't let anyone force a decision on you.
