Everything worth having is worth working for. There is no exception to your relationship.
Most of us understand the importance of work. You work to earn money, education, status and achieve your goals. You cannot be productive and successful in life without work. This begs the question:
“If you’re willing to work in every area of your life, for what you want–why not in your relationship?”
Why Work Is So Important to Your Relationship
Think about it…You’ll go to the driving range to practice your golf swing, to avoid embarrassment in front of your friends and colleagues. You’ll study and work long hours to support yourself as you attend college, planning for the future career you’ve always dreamed of. The list goes on and on. Why would you not put in the work to achieve success in your relationship? We’d like you to keep one critical thought in the back of your mind…
“Anything worth having is worth working for.”
It’s as simple as that. The same drive that keeps you focused on life goals, has to also be applied to your relationship… you both are going to have to do the work. There is no way around it. And, you don’t have to worry about what your spouse is or is not doing.
You can start your work… today. You can focus on being a healthier and happier person, no permission needed from anyone else.
There is still time this year to get started. Why not NOW?
For more support, we have described in-depth how to build communication and effective work with your partners in our book, Mining for Gold in Your Marriage, available on Amazon.
We would love to hear your thoughts and comments!
To your relationship success,
