Shaping the Odds in your personal lifeWe humans are social beings. We thrive when we feel a sense of belonging; belonging to a ‘tribe’, a society, a family, a group.

Researchers claim that relationships help people cope with stress and adversity as well as helping them to learn, explore, achieve goals, cultivate new talents and find purpose and meaning in life.

Relationships should support a person’s development by helping them seize opportunities and explore, grow and achieve. 

We tend to get the most out of any relationship when we feel we are contributing to that relationship in a truly meaningful way and the relationship is beneficial for all concerned.

In order to get the most from any relationship and situation we have to be the best version of ourselves we can be and to do that we have to shape the odds in our favour and make the most of what we have been given, our unique gifts and talents.

On a personal level, people shape the odds in their favour in different ways, including exercise, healthy eating, connecting with nature, spending time with family and friends, small and large acts of kindness, travel, continuous self-improvement, hobbies and much more.
