Want to Succeed in Your Romantic Life? Master the PPPPPP* Principle
* Proper Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance
As I prepare a series of workshops for people who are single and looking, and talk to many people about their dating lives, I realized that one thing forms the foundation of any successful endeavor — and really applies in the realm of love: an intentional approach yields intentional results while a haphazard approach yields haphazard results.
Most singles today want to find their life partner, but are scared and confused, afraid of failure and perplexed about how to succeed. So many people, driven by the fear of being alone or the mistaken judgment that single = loser, leap into dating strategies using trial and error that time and again lead to frustration, confusion, resentment and often anger.
In many cases, they then turn to solutions that are often shallow and worthless … thinking that they’d have more success if they were skinnier, had more wealth and material objects, wore sexier clothes, got plastic surgery etc. Our high divorce rate suggests that these solutions are pretty much ineffective.
I’ve become increasingly aware that the key to making good relationship choices all comes down to proper preparation, to set aside our natural tendency for laziness, to get off the path of least resistance, and to make the effort.
“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
~ Abraham Lincoln
What even more ironic is that when we take a bird’s eye view of our lives, we realize that in all areas of our lives, the only one for which we actually do any amount of proper preparation for is our careers. Or sports, if we are serious about our athleticism. We spend years and years of going to school or in training to learn the skills and knowledge needed for success – but in other areas, we approach everything with an element of the slap-dash, random, indiscriminate. And in truth, success can only be realized when you prepare for it. I can’t imagine that Derek Jeter would have any thoughts of just showing up on Opening Day without months of preparation and conditioning.
Our love lives prosper from that same level of dedication.
So how can you properly prepare before you swing into action? For one thing, you can tune into my FREE webinar that I’m hosting on the 5 Essential Principles To Have a Blissfully Successful Dating Life, designed to help solidify your dating foundation. As Ben Franklin said, an investment in knowledge pays the best interest… A good dating life is inspired and by guided by knowledge.
Second, understand that everything in life benefits if you spend time cultivating the skills for success. This doesn’t need to be complex and mysterious – but it’s helpful to start understanding some basic strategies. The more I witness how men approach women and how women want to be approached (and vice versa), I realize that most people have no idea what they are doing.
Your outcomes are determined long before you commit yourself to action. So give yourself the best odds possible and plan for success.
