Awareness and Communication Skills for Every Relationship
Thank you for taking the first step!
When you were young did you want to play your sport, or any sport at a high level? If so, you likely started when you were 6 or 7 years old and developed from there. Did you have to practice? Did anyone tell you that as you got older and better at your sport that you would be able to stop practicing?
How about when you first "made the team", did you get to stop practicing then? Of course not. In fact, you likely had to practice more! It would be impossible to keep improving if you didn't practice, and if you didn't keep practicing, you would lose your spot. Is it safe to say though, that as you got older and improved, practice did get "easier"?
Have you ever considered that maybe your relationship is not that different from your sport? Isn't getting into a relationship much like "making the team"? We know athletically that "making the team" is just the beginning. We expect to work hard, put in time and effort to learn and grow so that we can become a better athlete and make it to a higher level. With our relationships though, it seems that once we "make the team"...we are done. We have made it. We can stop "practicing". Maybe that is one of the reasons that relationships fail. People stop working on them. How long would any athlete keep their spot if they just stopped practicing?
Yes, we get it, training for athletics is fun, but was it fun right from the beginning? Were there not many times that you wanted to quit? Then what happened? You hung in there and kept working at it and then it started to become fun. As you got better at it and developed your skills it got easier and you started to enjoy it! Relationship development works the same way.
Being a Conscious Partner does take a little effort. Just like any sport though, once you learn the concepts and behaviors, it does become second nature. Best of all, relationship development can be fun! We can promise that there are no couches or yoga mats....just straight talk in a fun and relaxed environment. Let us show you how!
