In life, there are various building blocks to help you get to where you want to.
One of the greatest of such building blocks is people. Most of the time, it is not about how talented you are, beautiful or rich. You may be the most talented, richest, eloquent etc. but without anyone to recognize your value and grant you the right platform, you will be just like anybody else. The right people are assets. They can catapult you to wherever you want to get to in life. This is why you should value your relationships; they can make or mar you. Why else do you think people rely on connections?
It may be something as simple as recommendations, a friend bragging about how good you are at what you do or someone simply giving you a pep talk when you need it the most. The value you gain from the right relationships may not lead you to a million dollars, they may come in small ways but I assure you that any relationship you donâ€™t take for granted will yield fruits.
This is why you must understand to appreciate everyone in your life. It may seem like some people are so small and not all that valuable (probably because they are not rich, good-looking etc.) but in my opinion, as long as they are not drawing you back then stick with them.
Mind you, by relationship I am not saying the people you date. It includes those people and even much more. Each person in your life should be adding value to it and if they are, buy them stuff, take them out and just generally make them feel good. Let them know that you value them. Never discard anyone; everyone has something to offer you.
