Relationship is the stuff that life is truly made of. Not the artificial relationships in schools or social and business environments where forced inclusion is expected. Rather, chosen and nurtured relationships.
How do true friendships and spheres of influence form?
Moving often as a child I found myself accepting the notion that friends are due to proximity. Geography not genuine concern defined my friendships.
We know friends are important because they impact and establish the quality and direction of our lives. Without friends we have no influence because no one’s listening. Leadership is influence.
