10 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!
