5 Actions to Take That Will Immediately Improve Your Marriage
Tried & Tested
I accidentally shared an incomplete version of this a few days ago; I'm dropping it again with revisions and content added.
We all know that devouring a dinosaur happens one bite at a time, and most people miss the single “bites” that deliver greater progress than others.
Men get trapped in the loop of endless talking and planning of how they’ll feast, but not enough emphasis gets placed on wolfing that thing down…
Here's the truth: Knowledge alone won't change your life.
While being aware of the obstacles you’ll face as a man trying to overhaul his life is important, putting in the work to turn your understanding of reality into tangible benefits is the only thing that matters at the end of the day.
So, let's get down to business and discuss practical actions you can implement right now to forge a path of personal improvement, become a role model for your family, and attain the extraordinary relationships you've always desired.
Before I go into the five steps, I want to give a shout-out to five men whom I have been reading from daily this past month:
Each of the accounts above has dropped content that has made me more aware and prepared to capitalize in today’s world.
Action #1 - Conquer Your Goals
It's time to put pen to paper and outline your ambitions.
Wanting something is one thing; planning to get that thing is different, and it’s in planning, not wanting, that you’ll find yourself attaining.
Let’s Plan for Success
Jot down six goals—three short-term (to be completed within six months) and three long-term (to be completed beyond the six-month timeframe).
Now, beneath each goal, list two specific actions you're going to undertake to achieve them. Remember, it's through deliberate action that you'll turn dreams into reality.
Specific action items to attain them
Do this, then you’ll find yourself completing lists and not just making more lists with the same shit later in the year.
Action #2 - Train for Triumph
Simply going through the motions won't cut it when it comes to physical transformation.
Lifting weights aimlessly is inefficient and ineffective; whether you're a novice or a seasoned gym-goer, finding a well-designed program that reflects your goals is critical to go from a life of redundancy without progress to a lifestyle that is accelerating toward your ideal goals.
Having a clear plan of attack ensures you maximize progress and eliminate guesswork during your workouts. It also eliminates all of the wasted time that none of us have to give away in our lives.
Stop guessing and start doing things for intentional reasons; you won’t reach the physique destination you’re searching for without finding yourself a map to Chadistan.
Action #3 - Embrace the Feminine
Stop expecting your wife to think and behave like a man. It sounds fucking stupid, but there are many men who get mad that their wives don’t act like themselves or “just get it” the way a dude would.
She's a woman with all her unique qualities that attracted you to her in the first place.
It's time to let go of unrealistic expectations and acknowledge her complementary role as your wife and mother to your children. Celebrate the very femininity that sometimes irks you, for it's the essence of her being.
