I just finished reading another book by Dr. Henry Cloud called “The Power of the Other: The startling effect other people have on you, from the boardroom to the bedroom and beyond-and what to do about it.” This book does not disappoint as Dr. Cloud reveals the importance of relationships in our lives.
We were not created to be islands unto ourselves. We need relationships and connectivity in our lives. In this book, Dr. Cloud states that “Relationships affect the quality of our lives and our performance. Other people do have power in your life, for good or bad. You don’t have a choice about whether or not others have power in your life. They do. But you do have a choice as to what kind of power others are going to have.”
The Power of the Other guides the reader to evaluate where you are in your relationships and how to develop true connections with others, that allows you to invest emotionally and functionally in other people.
There are so many valuable principles to learn from Dr. Cloud’s advice that if applied, will dramatically improve the quality and success in both your personal and professional life. This book is definitely worth reading.
Happy reading everyone! Click here check it out for yourself.
