10 Reasons Why Happy Couples Do Weird, Gross Things Together

10 Reasons Why Happy Couples Do Weird, Gross Things Together

When you see a couple, you can usually tell how happy they are just by the way that they look together. They casually hold hands, or hold onto each other, and the way they look at each other just makes you realize that they are truly happy.

What you see before you, though, is not what you would see if you saw these same two people in the comfort of their own homes. The same cute, happy couples are the ones at home sitting in their underwear on the couch shoveling fast food in their mouths, belching and sometimes spilling all over themselves.

These two people are the ones having farting contests at night in bed and squeezing pimples on each other’s faces in the morning before work. The point is that some of the happiest couples you see do some of the grossest activities you can ever image, and here’s why:

1. It shows that they are willing to do anything for each other

If your significant other is willing to pop a pimple on your forehead, and risk getting squirted in the face, imagine what else they would do for you? It may seem like a simple concept now, but when it comes to the ones you love, it can mean so much more.

2. It shows that they value secrets

I’m sure you wouldn’t want your significant other bragging to their friends at work about that farting contest you two had last night, simply because, well, that’s a little weird from an outsider’s view. These gross little moments are private, and something you two can cherish alone.

3. It shows how much they like to take care of each other

It really does take a special kind of love to do something so weird and gross, like clip your significant other’s toenails, for example. Any other task is nothing compared to that, and the fact that they are happy to do it should mean a lot to anyone.

4. It shows that you aren’t afraid to open up

If you are so worried about farting in front of your significant other, imagine what else you might be afraid to do or talk about. Everybody does it, and if they don’t take to it well, then you know they aren’t the right one for you.

5. It helps you to not feel the need to impress

Worrying about self-image can be really stressful, but if you are used to seeing you significant other use the bathroom with the door open, or walk around the house with a messy head of hair and a barbecue sauce stain on your T-shirt, you don’t have to worry about that anymore.

6. It show’s that you aren’t judgmental

It can make somebody feel really uncomfortable if you laugh at them for letting one rip. Couples who do gross things around each other know that they can do that with out the fear of being judged by their partner.

7. It creates a more relaxing atmosphere

These kinds of couples can look forward to pretty much anything, and not have to worry about a burp, or any thing else being a negative factor in their time together.

8. It gives you something to laugh about together

When these odd activities get even odder, you two can be rest assured that you both can get a good laugh out of it until milk comes out of one of your noses.

9. It doesn’t ruin the intimacy

When things get a little bit more romantic, a nice tooter will not kill the mood for either one of you. Instead, you’ll be able to share a good belly laugh together.

10. It might strangely provoke intimacy

During a pimple popping session on one of your backs, just being in such proximity could bring you closer together in other ways. Which wouldn’t be strange for a weird, gross couple like you.

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
