Most people don’t realize that the quality of your relationships = the quality of your life! There is a direct correlation between a person’s level of happiness, success, financial prosperity, overall wellbeing, and their primary relationship.
And ones primary relationship influences and often sets the tone for all other relationships in life… At work, partners, friends, clients etc. IT ALSO DETERMINES HOW SUCCESSFUL YOU ARE FINANCIALLY.
The subject of relationship can be a hot potato, especially when talking about sex and money. My own experience has taught me that when my partner isn’t happy – there is no way I am going to be happy (and vice-versa.) The question is what to do about it?
The purpose of this article is to give you some options, insights, and ideas…
Admitting That Things Could Be Better Is The First Step
If you are like most people, you may have a difficult time admitting that there is even a problem. Somehow admitting it can often feel like we have failed. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Nothing will change until we admit that there is something to improve in the first place.
Many of us are lacking inspiring role models of successful relationships – and rely on the examples of our parents, other family members, and friends. Often when we compare our relationship to that of our parents we feel lucky and in many ways better off (or our relationship is exactly the same as theirs)… However, this does not mean that we are realizing our full potential in this area – and with a little effort – can enjoy a true partnership where both parties are totally fulfilled and any issues can be quickly and easily resolved.
Unfortunately, the opposite is often the case…
Small Issues Left Unsolved – Fester
Small issues that remain unresolved fester, get suppressed and gnaw away at the harmony… Only to explode into a chasm at the smallest provocation. And many of these differences have a huge impact on one’s life… For example differences or lack of alignment around money, how to make it, how to spend it, financial planning, investing, budgeting and the future. What if one partner earns many times more than the other? Not to mention how this affects the children (if there are any.) What if one partner is controlling and making all the decisions?
Speaking of children… Many people don’t realize that yelling, arguing and the silent treatment are exactly the same and have an equally devastating impact on children.
Lack of Support (Spoken or Unspoken)
It is very difficult to enjoy a fulfilling life or career when one partner does not agree with or support the other partners’ choices. What is possible if both parties are in full alignment – or at least have the tools to reach a resolution? What would life be like? What if making money and creating wealth was an inspired activity that flows from the harmony between two people?
One technique many people use to get what they want is to set their expectations so low – that they are guaranteed to meet them. This way they avoid disappointment and over time settle for less and less. The key to having an inspiring and fulfilling life is exactly the opposite… To set expectations HIGH and to change what is in the way of realizing the highest ideal scenario. Having high expectations requires work… It requires learning… It requires letting go of the past… However, the benefits are well worth it – I promise!
Any Rift Can Be Healed
Regardless of your background, experience, social position or age… It is totally possible to heal any rift in a relationship (as long as both parties are willing) and to move into more alignment, harmony and ultimately a true partnership of equals. The first step is to create safety for each partner to openly share thoughts, feelings, and expectations.
If you are single… It is also possible to attract the relationship of your dreams – sooner rather than later. The key is to become the person you most want to be in a relationship with.
Personally, I have been on a lifelong quest for the ultimate relationship… A partnership between two equals who share a common purpose, vision, alignment of values, commitment to an ideal scene, the willingness, skills, and knowledge to resolve differences. The journey has not been easy. But it has been the most worthwhile and fulfilling activity I have engaged in.
I invite you to raise your standards, make relationships your number one priority and to invest money, time and energy to realize your wildest relationship dreams.
