Aspiring leaders are the people who aim to be at the top of the success ladder in their respective careers.
These people are faced with challenging choices in their professional and private lives each day. They have to decide the way they spend their week. They select the kind of events they go. They have to skillfully choose their friends and associates. They have to decide the particular image they want to project wherever they are.
Simply put, THEY MAKE TOUGH CHOICES!
Yet, many of them do get it wrong when it comes to making key romantic decisions in their relationships.
So here are three romantic mistakes that aspiring leaders make.
1) THEY TREAT THEIR PARTNERS AS TOOLS AND NOT LOVED ONES
If you truly love your partner (whether boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife) you won’t be in that relationship for the sake of public image or finances. You’ll be in the relationship for the sake of your heart- BECAUSE YOU’RE IN LOVE!
2) THEY DON’T CREATE ENOUGH PLAY TIME FOR THEMSELVES
Whether it is a phone call, a date, a visit, it’ll help you take off your mind from the stress at work. A successful relationship is free of tension and has the element of fun and ‘dirty thoughts’. Lol
3) THEY STRUGGLE TO SAY SWEET WORDS TO THEIR LOVED ONES
It is easier to say Yes Sir (/Ma) at the office but hard to say “Sweetheart, I love you!”, “Honey, I missed you today!”, “Thank you Love!” etc. Why not say them? Learn to say them. They’ll be useful when there is a disagreement between you two.
Finally, aiming for the top is sweet. Just plan and take daily actions that bring you fulfilment, fun and joy.
What you can do now: Improve your relationship today. Recall all the unused opportunities that you had to add more romance, excitement, and fun to your relationship.
With this memory, get your diary and set different times of the week that you’ll dedicate to spending time with your other half. Also, think of the new caring ways that you’ll use to answer his/her call, the times you’ll have to send him/her a romantic message/sms/email etc.
