Understanding Connection

img_1549Connection is a complicated and complex subject.

Connection is the ultimate goal of a happy and well balanced life. With connection, you can achieve peace, happiness, health and wealth. Connection is the foundation of all the good, solid relationships in your life. Likewise, disconnection is the loss of the relationships you cherish most. Connection brings balance and happiness while disconnection brings chaos and sadness.


Connection with our mothers in the beginning of our lives brings trust and love. Connection with our friends at school and work brings feelings of self-worth and belonging.  Connection with our mate.  Connection with our job.  Connection with our faith.

Connection, Connection, Connection.  You get the message?  You see the connection?

Connection is the base of all our relationships. It is the glue that holds it all together.  The lack of connection is when things fall apart.

Over 20 years ago I began to realize the vast power of connection. The more I incorporated connection into my life, the more successful I became. During my business career, I helped grow a global company from just under $10 million in sales to over $250 Million. This growth and the company’s success were built on connection.

I have a wonderful marriage.  It is more romantic and passionate now than when it began 35 years ago. The secret is connection. Spiritually, my beliefs are stronger now than ever before. This is because my faith is built on connection with God.

This blog is about connection in my life and the lives of people around me.

In future posts I will discuss steps to connection with the one you love including how to give “great phone.” My next post will explore the symptoms and causes of disconnection and how it can destroy your relationships and your chances at success.

Your comments and personal experiences are requested and appreciated.

  1. Hi Steve,

    I’ve been reading through your blog and have always appreciated your views and perspectives on business and relationships. I remember sitting in on Chem-Aqua team meetings each year as a kid, listening to the inspirational speeches that always had a pointed message and theme to re-motivate the troops and recenter everyone around having another strong year in sales and in their personal lives. Now, as I am in the beginning stages of my career, these words have never rang more true. Thank you for sharing this with me!
