Relationship in a rut??

No one person is perfect and no one relationship goes with out a fight or argument. It is prone to happen. The longer you know someone the more you learn about them and the easier it becomes to push their buttons when you feel hurt by them.

When it comes to marriage or a relationship that is running into turmoil and you are wondering if there is anything that can help repair....  I highly suggest reading, "The 5 Love Languages" by Gary Chapman.

After reading this book (even though the copy I read was directed toward marriage and I'm not married), I have been able to look at every relationship I have been in and even my relationships with friends and family and realize what has been causing the other people in my life to feel unloved or what they have been doing that has caused me to feel unloved.

I was even in a very serious relationship in the past that ended badly. After reading this book, I have realized why things got to the point they did. We both were not speaking each others "love language." Had we been doing so, perhaps things would have ended differently. There also has to be the want on both ends to work things out.

Anyway, the five love languages are: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.

I learned my primary is Quality Time. I feel most loved by anyone I have a relationship with when we spend quality time together. This is what makes me most happy. Taking this away is also what makes me most upset and leaves me feeling unloved.

Now, don't pre-judge. The book goes and explains each love language deeply and even shows the differences between what helps or hurts someone who speaks the specific love language.

MY POINT IS!  ~  If you and someone you care about is having issues and feeling hurt out of your relationship... Check this book out. Read it, figure out what yours and the other person's love language is, and start working on speaking theirs. It can make a huge difference.

True Freedom. Easier than you think.

When asked what I wanted to be when I grow up... I never had an answer. I just knew it was something bigger than corporate America. It was something where I could run the shots and no one could tell me no or when or how. I didn't have a dream of becoming a doctor, lawyer, or big shot athlete... no, I knew there was something much bigger for me.

The more I read about Network Marketing and the turn of the 21st century... the more I now know what my calling is. I've always liked helping people, been artistic, inventive, self-driven, and able to see the big picture. I no longer want to be a slave to the modern 9-5 job trying to climb the corporate ladder only to be told when I can advance and have limits placed on what I can earn. I no longer want to wonder if I will still have a job tomorrow or a year from now.
No what I want is to create my own security that is fully dependable on just myself. I don't want a boss to answer to, time restraints on when I can sleep or take care of the important things. I want true freedom.

This is where network marketing comes in. Here my success is built soley on what I decide to do, how much time I decide to put in -  Everything is dependant on me. It is not only learning to build a business for yourself, but to build YOURSELF. To develop personally. To get out of your comfort zone and undo the brainwashing society has influenced the many generations before me.
It is a new day, a new age, a new generation. Those who made something of themselves, who's names lasted for generations past their death... they were the one's who oppossed what society told them was the 'right way' and instead they began to venture down different avenues. Minds were thinking outside the box.

Success is in every person's grasp, but it is up to that person to take a stand and do what is necessary to become successful. People do not have to go to college to become educated. No, education comes from trial and error. Learning to think for yourself and figure out the best possible solution.
If you want to succeed stop repeating the same process over and over again. If you keep reaching the same result, step back and take a look at what you are doing. Something has to change.

Sure I could look at switching jobs. Find something that has hours that better fit what I want, more pay, better insurance...whatever it may be. That is still thinking inside the box. I still will have limits on time and money potential. I would still end up with the same result. No, what I need is something that allows me the freedom to become my own boss, decide when I work and for how long, where the earning potential is limited only by the amount of effort I put in.
What I need is network marketing. What I have found gives me the power to chose. Freedom.
