Your life will not be “better” if you are married or in a committed relationship. We take ourselves with us wherever we go…especially into love relationships.

A successful, committed relationship depends upon being ready:

  • physically
  • emotionally
  • financially
  • legally
  • spiritually

for the life and relationship that you want. Get your personal work done!

Be sure you…

  • Take time on a regular basis to clarify your personal Vision, Requirements, Needs and Wants.
  • Spend all the time it takes to answer the questions: Who am I? What do I want? How do I get what I want? Bringing new knowing into an established relationship can increase your energy, vitality and enthusiasm for your partner and your relationship. There is no replacement for Self-knowledge.
  • Take time on a regular basis to review your partner’s values, style and temperament, attitudes and personality traits—even if you have been married for years. Bringing new knowing into an established relationship can breathe new life into your marriage. There is no replacement for Partner-knowledge.
  • Focus on learning, practicing and mastering the Essential Relationship Success Skills.

Be as ready as you can be to be your BEST and most brilliant, passionate Self in the presence of your partner. Live the life and the love life that affirms and esteems you, your partner and your marriage.

Remember, only YOU can make it happen!
