Relationships - the area of life that energises all others

There is one area of your life that can bring you the greatest joy and excitement — or the deepest sorrow and heartbreak – the area of relationships. A broken heart can take even the fiercest warrior and bring them to their knees.

Relationships are our most intimate connections. They are the place where we dance between what we desire most, and what we fear most. Relationships magnify our existence by intensifying the force of life – our emotions. Have you felt the immense joy and surge of energy that comes when you meet your partner's needs? That energy flows through into all other areas of your life and affects how you walk into work, the way you approach challenges, and even your physical health.

The power of polarity

We all know opposites attract. But why is that?

The answer is found in polarity.

In any relationship where there is sexual attraction and deep intimate connection - you'll find the power of opposite energies at play. We have intense physical chemistry with those who have an opposite energy to our own. Whether masculine or feminine, this energy is not gender-based. Every man and woman has varying degrees of both masculine and feminine energy - but one is a natural dominant force inside you.

Polarity is like a light switch; it can be turned on in a moment! When it comes to love and passion, practice and cultivate your natural energy. Embody it. Embrace it. And it will energise your relationship!

Innovate in your relationships

Did you know that 96% of all companies fail over a ten-year period? And that 40-50% of all first marriages in the United States end in divorce? Why? The reason is the same for both - they stop marketing and innovating.

Consider this. In business, companies use marketing in order to get potential clients to want to do business with them. Likewise, they use innovation to find a way to meet the needs of the customer better than anyone else. In relationships, it's the same.

You must continuously market and innovate with your partner.

Think about what you did in the beginning of your relationship in order to meet the needs of your lover and get them to want to be with you. Are you still doing those things?

If you do what you did in the beginning of the relationship there won't be an end.

Discover the way to meet your partner's deepest needs

In order to have a truly magnificent relationship — the kind that is so full of joy, passion, and ecstasy that it feels like a dream — you first need to understand the psychology of the six human needs.

Each of us has all six of these needs, but in varying levels. Meeting just three needs creates an addiction to a person or behaviour. Imagine if you can find a way to meet all six of your partner's human needs. Your relationship will become a vehicle for deep and meaningful fulfilment. Ultimately, you will create a relationship where you and your partner are meeting each other's needs – transforming your relationship into the greatest source of pleasure.

8 ways to increase the quality of your relationship

Our relationships define our entire lives. It’s because relationships with others either fuel the fire of our success or drain us of the will to achieve more.

Here are ways to empower your partner to bring out the best in both of you:

Think back to a time when your partner met your needs in a very satisfying way. Remember those feelings of energy and joy that your partner’s support gave you. Those energetic feelings made you feel like doing even more and becoming a better person.

Relationships magnify human emotion. This means that by sharing your joy, your love, your fear and any other emotion, you make more of it.

No relationship is perfect, and each of us can feel critical about our partner from time to time. However, demonstrate that you are truly your partner’s fan, and they know it without a doubt.

Too often we find ourselves trapped in the same patterns week after week and year after year. Unfortunately, complacency is the enemy of your relationship. Strive not to be a good or even a great partner; instead, be the best partner you can possibly be.

If someone asked you right now what your partner’s most important needs are, could you answer the question? Even if you feel sure, the act of discussing emotional needs and wants builds intimacy and trust.

Every relationship undergoes stressful times. Seize it as an opportunity for personal growth together. When you meet this challenge, you improve your relationship and earn the support of your partner.

Don’t settle for the honeymoon being over. See your partner through the same eyes you did when you first met and prepare yourself and your partner for a lifetime of exciting “first dates.”

The emotional needs your partner has today may be very different from the needs they had when you met. Meeting those needs is still your job!

By seeing how much power your ability to choose better behaviour gives you, you can ensure that you are pursuing a positive path alongside your partner.
