Previously, I defined players as people who take action. Today, let’s look at how players function in relationships.
Do you have a relationship with someone that is not working out well? I am not talking just about romantic relationships; this could be your dental hygienist. Did you leave your last cleaning feeling like your mouth had just been mauled, or did you stop things and ask for a little more sensitivity?
A player does more than just say, “You don’t listen to me.” A player speaks up and people listen. You can be polite, gracious, and inoffensive while still demanding the attention you deserve.
In a department meeting or with a significant other, stand up and have your ideas recognized. Being a player requires action.
Please share with me in the comments below, how were you a player and resolved a difficult relationship?
