10 Relationship Tools From 10 Unlikely Places10 Relationship Tools From 10 Unlikely Places! READ ON…

It’s funny how life works. Principles of flow, happiness and success in one area, often aptly apply to other areas as well. In other words, somebody who’s an expert in their career might have (unbenowest to them) developed Expert Zen Wisdom in Love – that if followed would bring you great joy in your relationships!

Consider these 10 Relationship Tools From 10 Unlikely Places:

1. THINK LIKE A STOCKBROKER:
Don’t wait for things to totally plummet to get out of something that you know in your heart is not working. Trust your instincts when you sense things rapidly losing their value. The sooner you get out, the lesser the damage, and the sooner you’ll have the chance (and the where-with-all) to re-invest in something that offers more gain.

2. THINK LIKE A BASEBALL PLAYER:
You have to be willing to hit a lot of strikes if you want to learn how to hit impressive homeruns. (Babe Ruth was not only the biggest hittest of homeruns in his day – but also the highest striker-outer!)

3. THINK LIKE AN ARCHITECT:
You have to make sure you first focus on building a sturdy foundation, one that will last, even through earthquakes and other unexpected acts of God, as they say in the business. Always make sure your foundation is a much more important priority than the exterior stylish looks of things.

4. THINK LIKE A MARKETER:
Don’t try to sell kiwis to a shoestore. Don’t try to buy kiwis in a shoestore. Some people don’t want what you have to offer. Some people don’t have what you need.

5. THINK LIKE A GARDENER:
You must accept that some plants are only meant to live a certain time, a certain season. If you try to make them live longer, you will be a bad gardener.

6. THINK LIKE A LAWYER:
Lawyers know that the one who wants the negotiation to succeed the most has the least amount of power in the negotiations. (Ditto with who wants the relationship to succeed the most!)

7. THINK LIKE A DOGTRAINER:
Dogtrainers warn about a little something called FLIGHT AND CHASE BEHAVIOR. If your dog is running away from you, the worst thing in the world is to run after it. The dog will only run away faster. Instead you must remain calm. The animal can sense the fear and anxiety in you. Act like you’re having lots of fun. The animal just wants be where the fun is.

8. THINK LIKE AN ENTREPRENEUR:
In a competitive market, you must always be different in some way. It’s good become aware of what is different and special. Promote this uniqueness proudly.

9. THINK LIKE A RACECAR DRIVER:
Racecar drivers know that you never look at the thing you don’t want to squoosh your racecar into – because wherever you’re looking is exactly where your racecar aims itself. So, if all you’re looking at are all the dangers and bad things that you could smack into, then those dangers and bad things will be exactly what you smack into.

10. THINK LIKE YOU DO FOR YOUR CAREER: What do you do for a living? I’m sure there’s some expertise you know about from your career that would also serve as Zen Wisdom in love! I’d love for you to share this bit of Zen Wisdom below! Even if you do not share it in writing, think about it as an empowering tool to better help yourself move forward to your happily ever after.

    Think like an evolutionary biologist… If you’re lacking in something, more than make up for it elsewhere – adapt and thrive!

  • Anna Sheffield

    Very similar in theme to the race car driver’s wisdom, as a museum host working with children, I observe the power of attention working like magic every day. Maybe because we’ve become such a tech-dependent society (in general), just looking a child in the eyes and taking notice of what interests them creates a synergistically positive effect.

  • Aradia Goseling

    Think like an intuitive & go with the flow. You never know how perfectly something will turn out if you resist what is.

    Think like an artist & appreciate the beauty in all things. We often consider beauty to be something that is aesthetically pleasing, but a true artist will see as much beauty and value in something that isn’t “attractive” as what is.

  • Anna Sheffield

    Working with kids crosses those transferable skills of the animal trainers and racecar drivers, a bit. I’m balancing my focus between listening to them and entertaining myself. The power of attention packs some serious magic. I think these findings can apply to grown-up relationships, too.

  • Think like a bicyclist: enjoy life’s ride and your forward momentum. Scan the landscape, breath in beauty and beware of hazards. Feel yourself get stronger as you tackle each hill. Remember that very first tumble? You got back on your bike and found your balance. What about that first deflating tire? You learned to repair flats so you could continue your journey!

    think like an artist… Sometimes,
    it is better to follow the art where it is leading you, rather than
    forcing your ideas upon it. Sometimes, the “real” art is the actual
    process & moment of creation as it is happening, rather than what
    hangs on the wall after the fact.

  • Jennifer Franklin

    Think like a chef, choose the best ingredients and be aware substitutions can lead to mixed results.
