The Gentlemen’s Way Vol. 3: Eliminate Negativity To Make For Better Relationships

There’s no need to live your lives in bitter fashion. Not only is it detrimental to your internal being but it can also become detrimental socially and professionally. Volume three of the Gentlemen’s Way will offer insight on how to enjoy life while building healthy relationships across the board. 


Too many times our personal growth is stunted because of bitterness, greed, jealousy or prejudice when interacting with potential life-long friends, business partners or even associates.

For some reason, instead of building friendships with like-minded people, too many of us become preoccupied trying to compete or discount someone for some particular reason. Many times, that person actually had a ton to offer you and was meant to serve an important purpose in your life but because you couldn’t see the big picture, you missed out on an opportunity to progress. 

It’s like the answer to success that you’ve been searching for your entire life walks right past you and you blew it off, for some superficial reason. These are all traits of the small-minded, that cause people to stay stagnate in various areas of their life.

Enjoying life and enjoying it with others is the answer and faith, hope and love are the essentials you need to do so. Faith, that God will deliver whenever the time is right and that His time is the right time. Hope, or being hopeful, that you have everything it takes to be able to reach your personal, professional and social goals. And lastly, love. Something you have to constantly carry throughout your days. Many of the world’s conflicts would be remedied if people lived by this. 

This may be a challenging feat for people because a lot of these negative responses truly are involuntary. They’re second-nature to many, but it can be a work in progress. It doesn’t have to all come together overnight. Learn to have fun, learn to smile and shake more hands on your journey to success.
