Business relationships are the key to your career development. It is all to do with who you become in the presence and company of certain people. Business people have the capacity to tap into your talents, inspiration and business qualities.
In general, people are good for you and your career development, if they bring out the best in you and increase your creativity and energy.
However, many people shy away from forging business relationships that would be good for them because they feel “envious” of the very person who can have a positive impact on their career.
Envy is an important emotion and whether you are on the receiving end of it or feeling envious, you need to take some sort of action. Should you pull away from people who are envious of you or should you be brave enough to take the first step and begin a business relationship with this person? If there is a powerful exchange, it is likely that the business relationship will work and your career will rocket.
