The same holds true with your marriage. Because of this, I have developed 3 keys to my successful marriage that can also help YOU create more fulfilling and authentic relationships with your spouse, family members, or anyone in your life. In turn, you will see that achieving happiness in this sphere of your life will bring you success in all other areas. My relationship with my wife, Inga, is the greatest source of joy in my life. I adore her for how much she understands me and what I am about in life:. Partners often drift apart because they never develop the deep sense of connection required to overcome the stumbling blocks that happen in every relationship.
They sit next to each other… but never share their deepest thoughts and feelings with each other. Then one day they wake up to a stranger sleeping beside them. Good relationships are key to getting what you want from life. So the first key to stronger, happier, and more fulfilling relationships is committing to being and expressing your authentic self. The truth is that most people put on masks and different personas depending on the people they are with and the situations they find themselves in.
They become chameleons in order to be accepted, liked or loved. In addition to time and energy, it takes courage and the willingness to be vulnerable — to tell the truth about your thoughts, feelings, and desires to maintain a successful marriage. It takes courage to admit that you feel lost, scared, overwhelmed and discouraged if you are supposed to be the boss at work or the breadwinner at home.
It takes courage to admit you are unhappy or dissatisfied with the relationship, that you are not getting your needs met, or that you are thinking about quitting your job or that you find yourself being attracted to another person. Revealing your flaws makes you more appealing to your partner and to others. I can remember a few years back being frustrated that my wife would often criticize my eating habits — the food I chose to eat, the amounts I was eating, and so on.
As uncomfortable as it was, I told her that I needed her to be less critical and more supportive of me whatever my behavior was, and that I would take responsibility for my body and she should take responsibility for hers. At that point, she told me that underneath her critical comments were her fear about my health and my longevity.
Her concerns and her fears touched me deeply. As a result, I started eating even more consciously than I had been, and she made a commitment to support me and accept me with less judgment in whatever I was doing. Now that I eat better she has become a lot less critical in every area of my life. That uncomfortable conversation of truth-telling helped transform the quality of our relationship. By the way, a powerful communication tool that we now both use, instead of criticizing the other person, is this formula for effective feedback that helps avoid defensiveness and counterattack.
When I spend quality time with Inga, I give her my full attention with the TV off, and my computer and phone put away. I give her full eye contact and actively listen and respond to what she is saying. She loves going on long walks together with me or sitting by our pool and having long conversations. When we do this, she feels seen and heard and ultimately deeply connected.
Believe it or not, goal setting is sexy. Defining what you want and going for it with gusto is very appealing to your partner. Just like with being yourself, sett ing relationship goals means probably confronting some long-standing fears and roadblocks. Perhaps you can ask your boss if you can come in a couple hours early on one or more of the weekdays so you can make sure you get your evenings and weekends off. Every December, Inga and I take an afternoon or evening and set life goals for the next year. These include how many vacation days we are going to take, how many evenings we are going to schedule with friends, how many days we are going to spend with our children and grandchildren, how many days we are going to attend a meditation or spiritual retreat, and what quality we are going to focus on for the year—.
It may take your spouse, partner, family member or friend time to face their own fears or roadblocks before being able to meet you halfway.
