You can improve your personal AND professional relationships really easily . . . IF you’re willing to force a few smiles when you’re mad. And do some math. I’m not sure which of those sounds harder.

 

 

According to relationship experts, there’s a trick called the 5-to-1 Ratio that’s the key to keeping everyone happy and satisfied.

 

 

Basically, for every one negative interaction, you need five positive ones.

 

 

They don’t have to be big interactions or gestures . . . even something like a smile or a joke is enough. You just need to make sure you have five good things happen for every one bad thing.

 

 

And this works for marriages . . . friendship . . . and professional situations. As long as the positive-to-negative ratio is 5-to-1, you’ll be all good.
