6 Reasons Why You Don’t Have To Be Single To Be Successful



507794793-660x400If you’re success-driven, that means you’re a go-getter.

Whether you’re success-minded, a driven entrepreneur or an ambitious hustler with six different projects on the go and a ton of aspirations, you’re headed for the top. The journey to success, however, does not need to be a lonely one.

Although successful people are often perpetually focused and busy, that doesn’t mean they don’t have time for relationships. Similarly, if you’re a driven individual on the path to success, as focused as you are, you don’t have to be single in order to make it to the top.

Here are six reasons why it doesn’t have to be lonely at the top:

1. You’re not the only one with ambition

It is considered a rare quality to have true ambition.

I’m referring to the type of people who really go after success and who will do whatever it takes to accomplish their goals: late nights, early mornings, five jobs, side projects, thinking outside the box and a whole lot of networking.

While not everyone has this drive, plenty of people do. If you meet someone who shares your ambitious personality and is just as much of a go-getter, you will understand each other and a relationship could work.

You will both have busy schedules, and you likely both work extra hours if you’re both ambitious. Therefore, you will value your time together rather than whining about the fact that there’s not enough time for each other.

Dating like-minded individuals is key. While you’re chasing your dream, your partner is chasing his or hers. That means he or she is just happy to have someone with whom to relax whenever there’s that little bit of precious downtime.

2. There are supporters out there, not just haters

While some people will be resentful of your success, jealous of your drive and doubtful of your gift, the opposite type of person does exist: the supporters.

If you meet someone supportive, he or she will lift you up and encourage you while you are trying to get to where you want to be. Instead of being demanding of your time, this person will inspire you to chase your dreams.

Instead of dragging you down with doubts or negativity, this person will be there when you need some encouragement or someone on whom to practice that pitch. When someone believes in you, he or she helps you believe in yourself.

If you’re ever feeling inadequate, a supportive significant other will guide you in the right direction by trumping your self-limiting attitudes with support and encouragement.

A supportive partner can help you break free from the metaphorical prison bars that are holding you back, because everything is a lot less overwhelming when someone truly believes in you.

3. A healthy relationship will motivate you to stay on course

Having someone reliable in our lives who inspires us to be the best versions of ourselves helps us stay on course and keeps us motivated.

Your significant other should be the perfect person off of whom to bounce ideas because he or she truly cares about you and your endeavors and wants to see you succeed.

If you feel lost, this person is there for you and planning surprises for each other, such as rewards for hard work, is a great motivational tool.

4. Dating doesn’t have to be exhausting

You may think you don’t have time to date, or time to meet someone. You’re too exhausted, too busy and you can’t get let anyone get in the way of your success.

That, however, is the wrong mindset. All you have to do is date efficiently and then, meeting someone is easy. There are plenty of really easy-to-use dating apps, such as PlentyOfFish and Tinder, and many ways to efficiently online date.

Busy people often use online dating, as it is one of the simplest ways to connect with someone. Once you meet someone like-minded, you won’t exhaust each other with expectations or demands because you are both success-driven.

5. Hustlers need to de-stress, and the key is a good distraction

Sometimes when you’re chasing a dream, you find it difficult to relax. Your mind is always in six different places at once, and the ability to chill out is a constant struggle, especially if you aren’t yet where you want to be.

Having a significant other with whom to spend quality time is the key to relaxation. The vitality you need to keep a handle on your side projects can be easily lost if you are too stressed out.

Sometimes, all you need is a good distraction, like focusing on your significant other for a while.

6. A mood-enhancing relationship is good for your well-being and your success

Allotting time for yourself and your own needs is important. One of your needs is likely companionship, and you shouldn’t deny yourself of a relationship.

Even though you’re just fine on your own, having someone who is truly there for you is good for your well-being and, therefore, good for your success. You can stay on course with your goals, yet still have time for a date night once a week, with your partner.

Granting yourself these breaks will not break your focus, it will do the opposite: It will re-energize you. A date with your special someone will help lift your spirits, and a good mood is imperative to your success.

If you’re feeling happy, you’ll have better ideas, more energy and increased drive. It should not be lonely at the top.

Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.

Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.

The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.

With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.

Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.

Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.

Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’

To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.

With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
