Do you have a buddy, a BFF, someone you tell all your secrets to, who is always there for you, usually at the right time and the right place ?
Have you ever been wondering why helping others seems to be a piece of cake for them ? Why everything they say and do is so “spot on” and natural ? It’s like they are God sent !
No doubt about it : Having a good buddy is like having a personal coach or a mentor ! Consider yourself lucky when you have one at your disposal !
Buddies…Who are they, what drives them ? Let’s have a look at some of their characteristics and maybe – most importantly – how you can turn into one of them too…
Buddies always listen !
Because of their empathic nature they are careful listeners and are able to read between the lines. “I’m fine !” “Really ? What a load of bollocks darling !”
No need to beat around the bush, no bullshitting them ! They will get to the core almost immediately !
Even when you lose the plot or are going collywobbles, they don’t judge, they don’t blame. They know who you truly are and that this is just a silly phase you’re going through…
You are only experiencing a moment of temporary insanity !
Buddies believe !
They are here to help you keep your dreams alive ! They know when you are sabotaging your progress and they easily spot the people around you killing your vibe !
Their mission is to help you deal with the hooligans from your past and to release them for good.
They help you beat the bullies in the present and give you tools to stop the belittling, the jealousy and the hatred.
They believe in you when no one else does, with them you are never completely alone or lost ! They will never give up on you !
Buddies inspire !
They show you how to keep moving forward, heading up high !
They know how to keep you motivated ! They stimulate you and inspire you in different ways…
They poke you and sometimes even provoke you ! “And…cut ! Action !”
“Can’t, must, won’t, impossible,…” are words that have been erased out of their dictionnary. “Who said it can’t be done ? Bob’s your uncle !”
Buddies go all the way !
Don’t ask how they do it…They always have a plan and it’s usually as hot as their pants ! Expect the unexpected or things to happen accidentally on purpose !
They know how to put things in higher gear and will always go the full monty with you !
Buddies care !
Buddies care and take care of things ! They sense when words are useless and when you are in need of a good hug, a reassuring hand on the shoulder or a distraction from your worries.
They will support you and surprise you with unusual gifts to show their appreciation. They will take you for a walk, let you sing karaoke or maybe will go bungee jumping with you !
Everything they do is done wholeheartedly, with the intention to lift you up higher !
Buddies cheer you up !
Buddies are genuine and honest, they are hardly able to tell a lie. They carry their heart on their tongue and can sometimes be offensive towards others…
Strangely enough they always get away with it, as they are charming as hell and…well, they are as cool as a cucumber !
They are such fun to be around, they always look at the bright side of life ! They are always positive and excited ! They are so full of beans !
And last but not least they are always in for a fabulous joke that results in a good belly laugh !
Their motto : “Don’t worry ! Be happy !”
Phuro! Be inspired!
