Nothing enriches life quite like good friends. Those people in your life you feel really close to and can say anything to. Those people you share a special connection to...

Life's Greatest Treasure

"It is only when we have experienced the worst most crushing of times, when we have plumbed the depths of life, that we can experience the joys of genuine friendship" Ikeda

There is certainly nothing wrong with doing fun things with friends. But if you have a friend who is truly struggling or you are struggling yourself you have a rare and special opportunity.

Are we there for someone who is experiencing the worst of times?

If you create friendships where you have been there for each other even in the middle of great personal tragedies of some kind, and you come through the other side never having giving up on each other, the bond of trust that is created is truly remarkable.

So what can you do to develop this most wonderful gift? Many people avoid those who are going through a tough time. If you make a special effort to maintain empathetic connections with friends battling through winter you'll be creating truly valuable bonds that'll last a lifetime. 

Potential goal: In the next month reach out to and start building on a connection with one person who is struggling right now.

Having more friends means more opportunities for self-development!

"Those who make many friends have greater opportunities for growth and self-development; as such they make society a better place to live and lead happy, satisfying lives" Ikeda

If you also feel the best way to live is to have lots of great friends... the direct way to influence this is to expand your circle of friends. In particular, if you try and reach out to someone who usually wouldn't make an appearance you'll have a new opportunity for expansion.

Do we have many strong friendships?

You'll learn things you usually wouldn't becoming more open minded and tolerant in the process. You'll be making a concrete addition to a usually big sounding ideal... world peace. By deciding to actually do something in your everyday life and behaviour you'll be adding something very special to world often far too divided. Making your circle of friends larger, even if only a little, is a big contribution you can make.

Potential goal: Make one new friend this month that I usually wouldn't spend time with. Learn and listen with an open mind to all that friend has to say and maintain the connection.

and Finally....

As well as friendship there is also a celebration of a group of friends that are 'tight' a.k.a squad goals which attempt to highlight the unique brilliance of your "squad" or group of mates. Think Friends the TV show. Click the link to find out more.

So what can you do right this second to get started? 

1. Simply write down something you want to do, or some result you want to see.
2. Write down when you want to do it or see it by.
3. Check that it can be measured so you know when you have completed it.
4. Stick it up somewhere you see it every day and can't miss it.
5. Enjoy the motivation you have just created and let me know how it goes in the comments :-)

Happy Wise Goal Setting!
