Loyalty is

A structure: A common ground where self interests are aligned with group interests.

Self Interest example: I need to have a work life balance.

Group Interest example: Helping my mate who has to give me the working output and sharing status helps groups become loyal to each other.

A System:

A series of dependencies which flow both sides (never a one side giver or receiver) and inter-operational hand-offs that helps people not distinguish “me vs they” but accept “me” while thinking about “us and we”

Based on cycle of relationships: It is not just work. It is not just about spending time in office or home or with a constant group for a period of time. It is about sticking yourself up predictably every time all the time in the same zeal, vigor and support for the same group. Relationships transcend time and place and beyond this place is where loyalties are born. Any time and in any place cherishing a presence and feeling a relationship is what makes a group feel so special.

Built on core values and shared principles: What you are at heart and/or desire to be is the core value. Wanting to be fun/sport/debate loving, truth seeking, always seeking/helping out or experimenting or being constantly challenged are the core that becomes the reason to thrive and live the together moments happily.

Feeling these moments are enabled with shared principles. How each of the partners behave, live and shape the core and how it gets adapted to the personalities in relationships allow degrees of loyalties to be developed across individuals.

This possibly will be my last post in my current profile. Am thankful for the mates for the wonderful loyalty and camaraderie shared with each other and wish they last forever.
