Sustaining Relationships

What carries the day when your relationships are not going well? When you are feeling disappointed, upset and frustrated? When you are thinking that you are failing, that your partner doesn't care, that "this is not it."

No significant relationship - not one! - escapes having some breakdowns or downturns. Relationships are not going to be wonderful all the time. And you know that. You are not going to feel good all the time.

Too many people use feelings and emotions (including fears) to determine their actions in their relationships. But feelings and emotions are basically reactive in nature. You have no dominion over your feelings. They come and go as circumstances change.

What does not change with your feelings and emotions is your promises. Promises are proactive in nature, and have the power to produce, rather than react to, circumstances. By making and fulfilling promises together you can alter your world, which is very different from hoping to find a "better" one. In fact, you might be grateful when "this isn't it" is happening in your relationship because that's an invitation to return to creating and fulfilling your relationship together.

Renewing your promises, and creating new ones and the futures they produce, will carry the day in your relationships.

We're available to support you. Please call us.

The Power of Relationships

When you look closely, you'll see that you get into relationships to get something you want. You may want something for yourself, or want to make a contribution to another or others.

In either case you find yourself working on your relationships in an effort to ensure that you will continue to get what you want - even things you didn't know you wanted when you began the relationships.

When you focus on getting what you want you may be overlooking the power of relationships. It is only through relationships that anything is accomplished at all. "No man is an island." No one accomplishes anything completely by oneself. Relationship is essential, not only to accomplishment but to existence.

We invite you to join us in bringing power and fulfillment to yourselves and others. You can do that by continuing to transform your relationships and contributing that opportunity to others.

"I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve." - Albert Schweitzer, 1875
