Special people

We are often put under the misconception that we have to find our best friends or life partners within the people we meet in typical life situations, such as school, work or uni.

This is just a reminder that there are over 7 billion people on the planet!

Within those 7 billion lurks your best friends, your soulmate and your family.

So don’t panic if you can’t find those special people within your local environment, they may be elsewhere.

We often forget that we’re stuck in our own bubbles, and that there are loads of other people out there. Try to imagine the bigger picture.

Bearing all of this in mind, that does not mean that you should hate or put no effort with the people within your life because you’re convinced that these are not your people. You should still try to make the most of the time you have with those people. Make the experience you have with those people a positive one. A little bit of effort can go a long way. My general moto in life is to enjoy it as much as possible in an attempt to reach fulfilment. For me that means making every experience I have as positive as possible, therefore I make an effort with everyone I encounter within different situations.

I have been lucky enough to find some of those special people in these “typical life situations”.

How do I know they’re special?

I connect with them in a way that makes their presence feel like home.

I feel comfortable around these people, I can fully be myself. My laughs around these people are genuine. Nothing is forced in my behaviour around these people. I can talk about the strange ideas and philosophical concepts that I ponder upon with these people. I feel confident and good about myself around these people.

I am GENUINELY happy around these people.

If you’ve found these people, then cherish them and maintain that bond with them regardless of your modern busy lifetyles. Friendships like these will last a lifetime.

Team work makes the dream work

Cliché title, I know.

Recently I’ve been on a journey with a group of people… a team… a family.

The camaraderie I’ve developed with these people will not fizzle out.

There’s something about the bond you develop with the group of people who you embark on a long journey with. I’ve thought and reflected on why this is. We all started the experience effectively as people different to who we became by the end of the process. We’ve all developed our own skills and strengthened both our physical and mental robustness.

Psychology would say that we have conditioned ourselves to associate each other with this new mindset to keep pushing ourselves. Seeing eachother now will subconcsiously remind us of the challenges we overcame and personal development we undertook.

What we’ve learnt and exercised from this experience in terms of personal development will be of a great value.

So if you are about to embark on a journey with a team, be prepared to learn from others and reflect any good qualities put into practice. Thrive off of the good energy within the team and challenge that into achieving your final goal or product.
