Keys to Creating an Ecstatic Relationship
1. Know Thyself
First, know who you are and what you want.
2. Be ready and willing to do what's needed to create
the relationship you want; go for results. Avoid
getting caught up in who is right.
3. Relationships thrive
when both parties feel free to create the life they
want; be willing to end codependancy.
4. The quality of our
relationships are a reflection of the quality of our
agreements; know your standards, boundaries and agreements
- both for yourself and for the relationship.
And create solid agreements as the foundation.
5. Orient the relationship
by honoring personal and professional goals that are
important to both parties and nurture the common goals
of the relationship.
6. Communication sustains
realtionships; communicate everything that honors
its growth; make a conscious choice to be consistent
and keep your word.
7. Clarify the purpose
of the relationship and take actions that honor it;
relationships create the dynamic tension that helps
us become more than we would be on our own.
8. Place attention on
everything that enhances the quality of the relationship
and creates a better life; doing so creates abundance.
9. Deepen your ability
to live from a place of trust and the impassioned
living that comes from serving others; Renew what
fuels the relationship. Being loving and serving
others will bring you more happiness than being loved
and served, as the latter creates dependency.
10. Create a life that
is totally managed so the focus is no longer on your
needs, but on empowering others--your parnter--to
meet their needs.
