We meet a lot of people that are new to our lives. Some stay and some go. Some are around for a short time and some for a while.

The barometer whether they are a constant fixture in our lives versus a ship passing in the dark can be attributed to many things including the amount of learning we receive.

When we learn new things about them and about ourselves the value of the relationship exponentially increases. When the conversations are stale and “self-serving”, oftentimes the connection is lost.

Become a teacher and help others on their journey. Be selfless. You’ll help others immensely and, in turn, you’ll learn much more than you ever thought possible.
