Complimentary or Detrimental – The Relation between our Partner and our Career

Complimentary or Detrimental – The Relation between our Partner and our Career

Whether we are in a long-term relationship or a marriage with multiple beautiful children, such commitments require patience and dedication. Compromises will inevitably have to be made for the sake of something more significant. A peaceful and loving household can make all the difference in the world when asked: “Are you leading a happy life?”

The support we receive from and give to our loved ones will prove to be invaluable in our lives. According to studies, our spouses can make a noticeable impact on our careers. Regardless of sex, our partner’s personality traits and their relation to us can make an influence on our individual outcomes. Now, these influences may not always be positive and constructive. Here are some key points to go over if you find yourself on either spectrum of this situation.

1.      Honesty first

Miss communication can often be wrongly interpreted as being dishonest. Even before diving into the subject, it is a crucial disclaimer to make. We all make personal, romantic commitments with the presupposition of honesty. It is the building block of any healthy and productive relationship, either it is a personal or business-related one. That also applies to omitting the truth. Hiding what we want to do or accomplish will not contribute to the matter in any meaningful way.

If for any reason we are fearful of our partner’s disapproval, it is something we have to overcome. Together, through a productive and meaningful discussion so a compromise can be reached if in any way, shape or form possible. We have to let our partner know of our intentions at some point. If we have set misleading expectations at the beginning, it makes the resolution that much harder to obtain. Share your goals and strives from the get-go.

They will respond much better with us being upfront about everything rather than being secretive. So, the bottom line is, to be honest with one’s intentions, strives, and goals in life. If these are not compatible, it is a less desirable, but a reasonable conclusion, none the less.

2.      Communication

As stated before, the lack of communication can cause our loved ones not to understand our motivating factors. But, communication (arguably the most essential element in any relationship and this article) comes in many forms.

Some are good, and some are bad. In any sphere of life, the difference between a successful and unsuccessful cooperation is the kind of communication we conduct. Generally speaking, there are two types.

Confrontational (the bad one) and effective or resolution driven (the right kind). So, what is the difference? In short, confrontational arguing is being conducted for the confrontation’s sake, and nothing more. It is not productive or aimed to resolve matters in a mutually beneficial manner in any way. It only leads to higher cognitive dissonances and distancing of two people.

On the other hand, effective communication is one aimed at reaching the best solution for both parties. Frustrations, anger, and other emotions are being put aside for a moment in favor of a quick resolution to the argument.

Life is short, and so are career opportunities. Reaching a satisfying conclusion, as soon as possible, can prove to be difficult, and if the need arises, we can get help in the form of professional family solicitors. The goal they should help us with is making constructive, objective discussions and reaching a common purpose.

3.      Conscientiousness is next to Godliness

Now, there is a $5 word. Conscientiousness is a significant predictor of success in a person’s career. In much the same way, having a conscientious spouse can mean a great deal when it comes to our careers. There are many reasons this is true. Such a partner might offload more mundane tasks from us, giving us more breathing room to focus on work. People might also be inspired to mimic such behavior, leading to a positive feedback loop — a staple of any mutually propelling relationship.

It is important to say that our partners can provide valuable insight into our work life. No one knows us better or sees more than the ones spending the most amount of time with us. Treasure this feedback, and make the most use of it through these basic life principles. Together, we can accomplish so much more through insight, motivation, care, and love.
