The word relationship is built on the root: relate. So a relationship is based up how we relate to others.
When you build relationships do you relate to the other person or do you relate to yourself while talking to another person?
You can’t meet someone where they are when you don’t relate to them for who they are. How do expect to sell them, support them, lead them or love them when you aren’t even talking to them?
Stop talking to yourself. Build a relationship instead. It will be a more profitable experience.
