10 Signs That You’re In a Truly Unbreakable Friendship

10 Signs That You’re In a Truly Unbreakable Friendship

True friendships are unbreakable. It all depends on your perspective on what friendship means. When friendship is done right, there really are no boundaries or borders. You experience a classic story that will forever remain memorable. You may not know it, but there are small things that point to the fact that you are in an unbreakable friendship.

1. You can’t be with someone who they don’t like

There is this unspoken conduct or standard for your friendship. Both of you cherish being together so much that you only want someone who can positively impact your friendship. You will only be dating someone if your friend approves of him or her. If someone is not good enough for your friend, obviously that person cannot be good enough for you.

2. You make important decisions only after talking to them first

You can’t make those big moves without talking to your friend first. As such a huge part of your life, they deserve to play a role in the decision-making. Besides, they would do the same. Such moments solidify your commitment of friendship to each other.

3. You don’t want to hear gossip about them

You would go to war with anyone who says something terrible about them. You will have their back immediately by standing up for your friend and confronting the gossiper. And they will do the same for you with anyone who tries to sling your name through the mud.

4. You are happy for their successes

You can sincerely congratulate them and boast about about their successes. You don’t fake it or succumb to a state of silent envy — you are actually happy for their every success. You are even likely to announce your pride in them on social media.

5. You would never allow them to do something stupid

Before they go all-out and embarrass themselves in front of a crowd, or try to grab their car keys after a few drinks, you will stop them and make sure nothing awful happens. They will do the same for you because that’s just the type of friendship you have.

6. You can borrow each other’s stuff

There are certain items acquaintances cannot share, but friends who maintain an unbreakable friendship see the other person’s stuff as their own. They can share their cars, rooms, expensive electronics, and do these things for each other without expecting anything in return.

7. You can be possessive of each other

You think your friendship should be a priority and you should spend most of your time together. You can be jealous if they find other friends that they wish to spend time with. Luckily, you always come back to each other.

8. You treat every fight with them like a break up

You can’t eat, you can’t sleep, you can’t find peace until you’ve made up. Every fight with someone you have an unbreakable friendship with means a lot of pain to you. You really need to make a wrong into a right with them.

9. You really are not interested in more friendships

You are so cool with your friend that you are fine without any other friendships. You are super lazy about making new friends. In fact, you are not interested in the idea because it seems you are more interested in the energy you put into maintaining an unbreakable friendship with him or her.

10. You have an unspoken trust towards your friend

You do not need to say it or voice it. There are little boundaries in your friendship. Even when you go a few days without communication, you still have no doubts about your friendship.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
