Daily Lift #52

Build Relationships On Common Goals

Two people who want to have a good relationship need to be aware of a basic principle: When each one tries to pull the other to his own direction, there will be conflict and constant quarrel.

But when people focus on their common goals, the differences between them will not cause difficulties, and they will have a peaceful relationship.

Whenever you find yourself about to quarrel with another person, ask yourself, "What goals do we have in common?" This way of looking at the situation will make it easier for you to find a solution that will be satisfactory to both

(see Rabbi Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler - Michtav MaiEliyahu, vol.4, p.16; Rabbi Pliskin's "Consulting the Wise")
