Seven Secrets to
1. Commit and Open
Be 150% committed to your relation ship working and lasting (with the exception, of c ourse,
of putting up with abusive behavior). From this point forgive and move on.
2. Understand and let go of old patterns
To some extent we all model what our parents showed us. Fig ure out what your pattern s are
and those of your pa rtner and create new patterns that work.
3. Understand the difference between the sexes
Men and women are different. Our hormone s such a s te stosterone , va sopressin, ox ytocin,
oe strogen and progesterone affect our experienc es and reactions. While we are more alike
than different, it’s the differences that cause conflict so we need to understand these and find
positive ways of interpreting them so we get a different result.
4. Master your emotional states
The number one re a son why people are not succ es sful is their inability to control their emotion al
state. It is the decider of suc ce ss, a nd this applies whether you a parent, a businessperson, a
husband or a wife. Masculine and feminine are states, too, and if both partners are acting
from the sa me state rather than having pol arity, there’s no pa ssion. We need to understand our
states and learn how to master them.
5. Forgive the past and let go of resentment
Many couples experience that they have “fallen out of love”. What they really mean is that
resentment has built up over the years of being together. When a couple feel like this, they will
seek to have their needs met some where else. They haven’t fallen out of love. They have just
stopped feeling it for ea ch other. The head says it’s not there but the he art says it is a nd if you
try again, it will come back. The first step is to really move to your heart and the second is to
forgive your partner for the pa st. Done the right way, feeling love is g uaranteed. Every time.
6. Feel the love again
Love is a feeling and like all feelings it is influenced by what we think about, listen to and focus
on. If you can only see the worst in your partner, you will not feel love. You have to be able to
see the best in them and accept the worst things that they do. Like any other emotion there is
a sequence that needs to occur for anyone to experience love and that sequence can vary widely
a mong individual s. L ove is an emotion that you, too, will feel, if you let go of the re sentments,
and all the reasons that make you dislike the other person. If you begin to focus on the things
you do like, you will experience the love.
7. Ignite the passion
Commitment forms the basis for love to be felt again, and passion comes from love being firmly in
place and the partners being in the right states. Passion is not a tablet we take or something we can
buy. It has to be felt and we trigger it by wanting something with a fire in our heart. Isn’t that the
exp erience you have had at times when you have felt passionate about something in your life? Pa ssion
drives us to get something. To ignite passion, the rules are very simple – you have to want something
really badly. It has to be high on your priority list. You have to work hard to get it. It’s exciting to you.
